SHE RECOVERS Foundation (SRF) Sharing Circles are local community containers of support informed by the SRF Intentions & Guiding Principles. They are professionally facilitated, peer-supported, and intended for women and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities – who are in or seeking recovery – to connect, learn, heal, and share within a group of like-hearted individuals.

Intentions

Each SRF Sharing Circle plays an integral part of achieving the SRF Foundation’s mission and focuses on the following intentions:

Provide a holistic and unique recovery experience that is peer-supported, topic-focused, trauma-informed, and voluntarily facilitated by SRF Certified Professionals.

Create opportunities for women of diverse backgrounds and life experiences to connect, learn, heal and share about the practice of recovery with other like-hearted folks.

Celebrate diversity by embracing all recovery pathways and patchworks, all races, sexual orientations, body sizes, and all those differences of life situations, backgrounds, and abilities.

By supporting individualized recovery pathways we aim to help women build recovery capital and utilize all holistic practices and resources.

Serve as a free healing resource within a recovery-oriented system of care that complements other professional recovery supports such as, but not limited to, trauma therapy, counseling, addiction treatment, coaching services, psychiatric and/or medical care.

Foster co-created experiences built on a foundation of set intentions, agreements, and mutual respect for all participants, volunteers, and facilitators.

Tell us what you think.

Your voice matters and can help us to continue improving SHE RECOVERS Sharing Circles for all who seek to join a movement like ours.

The SHE RECOVERS Sharing Circles have been a saving grace for me. I have been missing in-person connection over the past few years. It is so healing for me to be in community with others who “get it”. I can be myself. I can share from the heart (or not if I don’t feel comfortable). I know my presence in this space impacts me and the others I have the honor of holding space for. We are stronger together.
