Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
— Mary Oliver
We have to be braver than we think we can be, because God is constantly calling us to more than we are.
— Madeleine L’Engle

Our world is filled with messages about who women are and who we ought to be. With all of these external filters, it becomes increasingly hard to listen to our inner voice. As women created in the image of God, our individual silence or hiding impacts the greater collective.

Through reading, prompts, conversation, prayer and meditation we will journey together. Our intention is to be open to listen - to ourselves, one another, and God.

Lead by Restoration therapist, Lindy Pearson, the "Circle of Women" group is a sacred space where our individual and collective healing is co-created and witnessed. Many of us bear the wounds of relationships. The power of coming together to heal in relationship is the work of restoring ourselves to our intended state of beauty, goodness and freedom. Our wellness is found in our unity, not in our isolation.

Group will meet for 7-weeks in person and one week during the series will be an off-site personal/private guided retreat that each participant will engage on their own. Cost is for the 7 in-person weeks that each participant attends the group. No cost for week of the personal retreat, though all participants are highly encouraged to participate as part of the group process. 

8 Weekly Group Sessions
Mondays, September 17 - November 5, 2018
6:00-7:30 p.m.
Limited to 8 Participants 

Due to the nature of this group, it is designed for women only. 

Community and individuality are not an either/or choice, any more than life and death are. Instead, they are the poles of another great paradox. A culture of isolated individualism produces mass conformity because people who think they must bear life all alone are too fearful to take the risks of selfhood. But people who know that they are embedded in an eternal community are both freed and empowered to become who they were born to be.
— Parker Palmer

Group Sessions are $50/session, with payment due in full upon registration. Total cost: $350

Due to the nature of the group, it is important that group members commit to attend all sessions. While we understand life and family emergencies may interfere, your consistency and presence is important for the continuity of the group and to offer dignity and honor to group members. Please review your calendar prior to registration. Thank you!
Circle of Women is designed as a therapy group, and while elements may be similar to a support group, small group, or church group, aspects of a participant's journey will be more deeply explored.

Meet The Circle of Women Group Facilitator


Lindy Pearson, MA

Lindy is the newest addition to the Restoration Counseling team having moved from Seattle, Washington to join the story work in Fort Collins. She graduated with M.A. in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology, and holds B.A. in psychology. Prior to moving to Colorado, Lindy spent the past 7 ½ years working with groups and individuals at Seattle Pacific University in the Office of University Ministries and the Student Counseling Center.

Her love of merging theology and psychology brings a unique perspective as she has engaged and invites others into knowing their deeper identity. In addition to her work in higher education, Lindy has worked in hospice with end of life and bereavement. She welcomes curiosity and questions among the complex issues of being and becoming.

Having moved back and forth between the Pacific Northwest and Colorado (now five moves between the two), she is convinced that heaven is a combination of the people and places of both places. She is grateful to be back in the land of sunshine with fellow Coloradans where the mountains are mighty and the sky is wide open.

For Lindy, Spring is a season of that invites to new intention and awaiting new life. When she is not in the office you might see her at a local nursery dreaming of future landscapes, planting bulbs in her garden, frolicking with her family through parks, or sipping some fresh brewed iced tea.
