“Your Spacious Self is a uniquely feminine approach to clutter clearing that invites us to slow down, observe, listen, trust, feel, allow mystery, surrender… remember.” —Stephanie Bennett Vogt
If you feel you would benefit by sharing your clearing experiences with others and could use the support and encouragement, I recommend you organize a Clearing Circle with your book group or circle of friends in your hometown, neighborhood, or community.
Invite only those with whom you feel most comfortable to take a six-week or six-month “clearing adventure” with you.
If you can’t find anyone to join you from your immediate circle of friends, put an ad in your community newspaper or convene a clearing group by going online to sites like Meetup.com and see if it generates any interest. If your friends live too far away, simply conduct your circles via speakerphone, FaceTime, or Skype.
Remember, all you need is one other person and you’ve got yourself a group!
Once you’ve assembled your circle, consider having everyone pick up a copy of Your Spacious Self: Clear the Clutter and Discover Who You Are, or buy multiple copies directly from Stephanie and receive a volume discount.
Everything you need to get started is outlined in Your Spacious Self: step-by-step guidelines for how to start and facilitate your clearing group (chapter 49), weekly worksheets, discussion topics, and six sample meeting agendas (appendix 1, 2, 3). This guided clearing program, which is one of the cornerstones of this book, follows a gentle six-part sequence that corresponds to the six sections of the book. The whole program can be easily modified or expanded to suit everybody’s needs and timetable.
If your group would like to deepen the clearing experience even more, either as a follow-up to the book, or in place of the book, consider using Stephanie’s 28-day online course from DailyOM as your primer. The exercises, audio meditations, and the journal prompts are a perfect complement to the book and provide a terrific base for discussion in your weekly or monthly book group or circle gatherings.
The thing about us humans is that if we don’t feel safe, we will not budge an inch! If letting go of old patterns and habits is your highest priority as a group, it is essential to honor everybody’s process, air time, and confidentiality. The programs in the book and the online course are designed to help you create a super-safe container!
Send us your stories! If you do start a clearing circle in your hometown or neighborhood, or as part of book group or women’s circle, and would like to share what has worked or not worked, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at: ClearingStories@spaceclear.com.
