~ NOW IS THE TIME FOR US TO GATHER OUR SISTERS ~
My name is Kate Reed and I am the creator of The Sister Circles.
I warmly invite you to my 3-day, face-to-face Facilitator Training in the Byron Shire, NSW, Australia.
Women have been communing in Circles throughout the ages, sometimes openly, and sometimes in secret, but always with the intention to bear loving witness to the lives of their Sisters, offering support, strength and wisdom.
Deep healing and transformation WILL happen when a person is ‘seen’ & held with love by others while they navigate life’s challenges.
This has a powerful ripple effect on the women who participate in these circles, that echoes through their lives in a profoundly positive way.
~ Who is this Training For? ~
If you are called to this work, you know it in your bones. It is the little niggle (or a loud roar) that just won't go away until you step into the fullness of your soul contract in this lifetime.
This training is for women who are ready to step into Feminine Leadership.... BUT, it is a new kind of leadership. It is not a dominating, 'look at me, I am in charge' kind of leadership. It is an attitude of the heart. It is a way of being that allows for other women to connect with their own inner-wisdom as you hold space for them in a truly, authentic way.
I have grown both personally and professionally in ways I could not have imagined since I held my first Circle over 20 years ago. I have witnessed the blossoming of more Sisters than I can count as they sit in Circle, without their 'masks' and reveal their true and beautiful hearts. It is a privilege and an honour to help women re-birth their authentic selves.
Sisters Circles provide a beautiful, safe environment for this transformation to be witnessed and supported. Your life will be forever enriched by doing this work, as will the women who join you.
I encourage you to hear the call and be activated by it. Never has there been a better time for us to gather together in Circle my Sisters.
With over 20 years of experience facilitating Circles, Workshops and Retreats, I am so grateful to be sharing my knowledge with women all over the world through the Sister Circle Facilitator Training. In our time together, I will lead you through everything you need to know to create powerful and soulful Sister Circles in your community. Nothing could fulfil and excite me more!
In the Facilitator Training Program, you will be taken on a step-by-step journey of learning. By the end of our time together, you will be ready to create and lead powerful Circles and Workshops.
Topics Covered include:
♥ PLANNING YOUR SISTER CIRCLE
Sitting in Circle is a ancient and sacred art of communing. In this training you will be guided, step-by-step, to plan and facilitate sacred and nurturing Circles that will nourish the souls of all who attend.
♥ CREATING A SACRED SPACE USING RITUALS
Rituals are an important part of any sacred gathering. They focus attention and intention and are a powerful tool for manifestation and healing. You will learn how to bring the sacred art of ritual into your Sister Circle, with clear guidelines on why, how and when to use them.
♥ FOSTERING CONNECTION & TRUST
Relationships based on trust and connection are the foundation for healing and transformation. Learn how to foster these important elements in your Sister Circle for all who attend.
♥ LEADING WITH COMPASSION & INTEGRITY
There is an art to Facilitation that ensures that the Circle is 'held' in a safe way. We will go into great detail about how to develop or enhance your leadership skills so that your Sisters will feel safe enough to leave their armour at the door and be their true, raw, authentic selves.
♥ THE ART OF SHARING & LISTENING
True listening is a skill that has been lost in our busy modern world. Most exchanges are brief and lack depth. Often each person is just waiting for their turn to talk. In Circle we create an environment where meaningful exchanges are celebrated and welcomed as we take the time to listen deeply to each other about what is really going on under the surface. You will be taught how to facilitate 'true' listening and sharing in your Circle.
♥ RESPONDING TO 'STICKY' SITUATIONS
We all view the world from our own perspective. Sometimes this means we move into a state of judgment and blame when we do not agree with someone's opinion or actions. In this training we look closely at how to manage challenging situations that may arise in Circle when emotional triggering has taken place and explore tools and techniques to quickly resolve issues and restore group rapport.
♥ MAINTAINING CLEAR ENERGETIC BOUNDARIES
Setting clear boundaries is a vital part of any helping modality. In this training you will discover the best way keep your own boundaries clear and strong whilst being loving and compassionate.
♥ SELF CARE FOR THE FACILITATOR - AVOIDING BURN OUT
Holding sacred space is honour and privilege. As facilitators, we are maintaining the group energy on many levels. In this training you will learn the importance of our own self-care strategies as well as tools and techniques to ensure you do not burn out physically or energetically.
♥ THE ART OF CO-FACILITATION
Working in collaboration with others can be a really rich and rewarding experience. We will learn how to make the most of your partnership, as well as strategies to help bring out the best in you both.
♥ CREATING UNIQUE ONE-DAY WORKSHOPS
Learn how to create a Workshop from scratch using the skills you have learnt as a Circle Facilitator, as well as a number of techniques that will ensure your Workshop will be successful.
♥ HOW TO RUN CIRCLES AS A VIABLE BUSINESS
Many women are choosing to run Circles as a business or as an adjunct to an existing business in the health and wellness sector. In this training we will cover how to get started, what to charge and how to promote your Circles.
♥ RESOURCES & TOOLS
To help you get started, you will also receive Sister Circle resources and tool that you can use in your Circles, including Blessings, Guided Visualisations and step-by-step check lists. You will also be invited into the Private Facebook for Facilitator Graduates where further support is provided.

Your heart is calling, and you are feeling activated! Amazing! Read on for some kind words from women who have completed the Training and are now Circle Facilitators.
"A glorious way to spend a long weekend, communing with women in circle, 'remembering' this ancient way of relating and the art of facilitating women's circles in our communities.
The sister circles facilitator training has provided me with a deep, lasting sense of stability, of clarity, of strength and of purpose. I also feel renewed confidence in what’s possible for the future of our human race and our planet.
I'm excited for the days to come and to bring sister circles to my community soon. Kate provides such an incredible example of holding space in a deeply nourishing, accepting and compassionate way. And as a trainer she empowers us to feel that how we bring this work forward will also be perfectly imperfect and in our own unique way. This is incredible medicine for us as women and I'm so grateful to Kate for bringing this 'work' through and for the opportunity to create a ripple effect in my own community with this work."
"I feel blessed beyond words to have felt the call to attend the Facilitator training in August, 2018. I remember reading in Kate’s promotional material that if you hear the call, then it is meant for you. This is so true.
I was a little concerned that I may have been a bit like a duck out of water because I didn’t come from the ‘healing realm’ like most of the other woman did. But the minute I joined them all on the first day, I knew that didn’t matter, and that in fact I was in the perfect place at the perfect time.
Kate is simply one of the most divine woman I have ever met. She glows with deep passion and love for this work, and her drive to keep it moving through our communities is beyond admirable.
She is a true professional with the quality of her program, with every detail being considered, both for the 3 day training sessions, and beyond (the corporate world has a lot to learn from her!)
I have felt the effect deeply, and simply can’t wait to hold my very own circles. You will leave feeling all loved up, with no question that you need to pass that love on."
"I have sat in circle many times and have always loved the connection that women have to each other. I have witnessed the deep healing that comes from sharing and being heard and have felt the call to hold circle myself for a while now. When I came across The Sister Circles website I just knew this course was the one. I cannot say enough about the beautiful space we were all held in as we were learning. Kate is amazing, supportive and teaches in a very nurturing way. I am a person that asks 100 questions as I like to know how and why we do things, Kate never blinked an eye at all of my questions and believe me there were a lot, yet I never felt any annoyance at all from her. Her listening skills and support are second to none. Kate is a genuine, caring and loving person and her energy is very real and inspiring. The attention to detail was amazing, the food was mmmm yummy and the experience was incredible. I cannot wait to hold my first Sister Circle and share this beautiful work. I am so grateful to have met such a beautiful soul. Thank you Kate xxxxx"
Jeanette Buchanan Life Coach For Me
"I would describe Kate Reed as one of the most generous, heart-oriented, wise women I have met and it was an absolute delight to be guided by her during this training. She created a beautiful, welcoming, sacred and safe space in which the participants met. The course was a delightful combination of sacredness, focused intention, relaxation, excellent content delivered with clarity, as well as moments to practice and times for sharing. What I learnt will not only serve me as a Sister Circles Facilitator, but will allow me to create the safest, most respectful sacred space and heart-oriented energy field in which healing and transformation may take place in any programs that I aim to offer. With Much Love and Gratitude"
Maya Voight healing facilitator & spiritual companion
"The Sister Circles have touched a piece of my soul that is connected to each and every woman across all time. For me they have strengthened the invisible thread that binds us all as women. They have reminded me of who we all really are... and of who I am as a woman. The Sister Circles have brought to the forefront of my life that innate wisdom that we all have within, and have enabled me to tap into this in such an effortless and graceful way.
I could never have imagined the powerful effect that participating in one of Kate's gorgeous circles was going to have on me. To have felt so lovingly heard, so safe and supported by such beautiful and nurturing women has been a life changing experience for me, and one that I hope every woman has the opportunity to experience.
These Circles are crucial for us as women - they enable us to connect not only with our inner-most selves, but with the divine Sisterhood. The Sister Circles are an elixir for our souls.
I am so very grateful for you Kate - and for all that you are doing for our Sisters."

"I just want to thank you!! Thank you so so much for what you have given me!
I know I've said it already, but the thing is you need to know that my gratitude for what you have done for me has now reached an even deeper level!! And you need to know, because you are truly amazing and wonderful… Magic and life changing for so many women! SO with all of my heart THANK YOU… Thank you for being you… Thank you for showing up… Thank you for being brave, generous and so god damn authentic and beautiful I just wanna squeeze you!!!
You have opened this door for me to delve into this amazing work of gifting joy, connection and authentic vulnerability to women around me… and I am just so very grateful… It fills me with so much joy and happiness….and this deep sense of gratitude as I am feeling so very full in my heart…
The so very interesting thing is that I have always quietly feared women quite a bit… Felt quite disconnected from them(not always but often)… and now due to attending your circles and embarking on facilitating my own I realise how much deep healing is happening for me -as well as all the new women around me….. And this is just such a humbling and wonderful feeling… and I need you to know how much I value what you do -Your amazing integrity and authenticity and your incredible gift to this world! Thank you so so much Kate!!"
Eva King - Wellness Coach and now Sister Circle Facilitator
"Although I had attended a number of different women's circles none had grabbed me the way Kate's did, so I decided to take the plunge and do the Facilitator Training.
Kate's circles are truly magical and her way of teaching is no different. She teaches in such a way that you can only succeed as you feel completely supported by the energy of the sisters no matter where in the world you are.
I had never run any type of circle or workshop before, but within a few weeks of completing the course I held my first Sister Circle - due to my inexperience I just followed all Kate's recommendations and it was an overwhelming success.
If this is something you are thinking of doing- just do it! You will never get a chance to be as nurtured through a learning process as you will be with Kate."
Libby Penning- Kinesiologist and now Sister Circle Facilitator
"Having been involved in Sister Circles in the past, I was very aware of the amazing power of women, deeply sharing wisdom to support each other in a safe space as they share experiences with each other. The healing occurs in front of you.
The Sister Circle Facilitator Training program interested me, as I kept speaking to women and men who were interested in sharing circles, and I also felt it would be beneficial in supporting colleagues in my work place. The program was so well thought out, I was coached through the process and supported in holding my first workshop, all while completing the training. Kate was wonderful in holding space for the participant, even over a computer screen, it was amazing. It has also assisted me in communicating better with my colleagues at work, and in my personal life, to really stop and listen to what they are saying, instead of listening to reply. I can already see this process empowering my colleagues at work as we co create in making positive changes in our workplace.
Thank you for sharing these tools Kate, I am so very grateful."
Grescha Brewer - Positive Living Coordinator and now Sister Circle Facilitator
"How do I describe what water feels like? We all know what it is. We drink it, bath with it, use it without thinking. It’s so available we take it for granted. Water gives us more than we are possibly aware of. This too is the power of the Circle with our Sisters. We see them, we hear them, and we even think we know them. But there is more to our Sisters than we are possibly aware of.
Attending the first circle may be out of interest or a feeling we decide to heed. Then we find the Circle of Sisters is like the water we have so needed for so long to nurture our souls. We meet in circle because we find it gives us strength to share our stories and our burdens. But more importantly, we see our light shining within our Sister’s eyes as they reflect back to us our strength and beauty.
'I am strengthened by my experience of exposing my Truth to you.' Thank you Kate for living your Truth and your dream so that I too am living mine.
Jimmie Lene Read - Shamanic Practitioner, Wellness Coach and now Sister Circle Facilitator
"I had a wonderful experience joining Kate’s on-line Skype ‘Facilitator’ training course. Although I lead a very busy life now living between two countries in Singapore and England I was pleasantly surprised how you can still feel the strong connection and transformation taking place when women gather together and take the time to share each others deep meaningful inner thoughts. It was amazing to me that you still get that connection via technology.
Kate has a very special way of putting everyone at ease and with her wealth of knowledge and experience she has created a magical course that is much needed in the would today to help women gather and take time for themselves to share and heal. Through her beautiful words and meditations that she has developed the course takes you through a wonderful experience which leaves you feeling like a healing has taken place. So simple yet so powerful. Every women needs to experience this feeling of transformation."
Kim Bux - Creator of Just Heal and now Sister Circle Facilitator
"Dearest Kate, Thank you! Thank you for all that you are... for sharing, for caring, for standing in your truth with such integrity, honesty and truth. I am deeply grateful for everything. Thank you for being you. It's so beautiful and refreshing. Your presence and love is a gift to the world. Yay to Sisterhood. With Love S."
Sascha - Healer and Energy Worker
"I had heard of circles before and indeed had been guided to join this one. Yet none of what I had heard and read held a clue as to the unfolding that would occur. The Sister CIrcles broke me open. It laid bare my deep longing to be seen. To be heard. To be held in a space of love without judgement, and without expectation. And when I felt broken, the circle held me together.
The power of the Circle and its effect was in large part due to the loving energy Kate brought each week. Even through a computer screen I felt her loving wisdom, gentleness and compassion.
The Circle is an ancient art which underpins the connection all women need. And we need each other more than ever now. It allows us to connect and support each other through shared experience. It’s like a warm balm for our wounds that allows the healing to begin with sweetness and light."
