Mission, Vision & Values

The Circle Vision Statement

The Circle affirms
the experiences and hopes of women, and
the creative process we choose
to explore and mirror the sacred in our lives. 

The Circle is a space
that can be entered actively and imaginatively
with limitless possibilities for involvement, where
the seed of the sacred
is released, shared and celebrated
as power for transformation and change.

 

The Circle Mission Statement

The Circle Women’s Centre is a unique program and resource centre serving women in the London community and beyond, as well as the students of Brescia University College, the University of Western Ontario and the affiliate colleges. The Circle focuses on feminist spirituality, its theory and practice by women in contemporary society. We welcome women from diverse experience and backgrounds, and as such maintain a broad based view of spirituality, honouring the riches of all religious traditions and expressions.

Inspired by the feminist perspective “the personal is political,” The Circle also aspires to enlighten and enliven women on a wide range of issues such as activism, social justice, environmentalism, women’s rights, human rights, feminism and feminist spirituality.  The Circle ispart of the vibrant women's network on campus and in the London area. It links with and supports other women's groups in the community who work to dismantle unjust structures and to embody life-giving relationship with all that is created.
