What is The Ayaba Series?
The Ayaba Series Sister Circle is a sacred healing space that promotes women’s ability to thrive. Through fellowship, monthly circles, service projects, and partnerships, we encourage unapologetic self-care and preservation.
The Ayaba Series Sister Circle, started in January 2016 by Eboné McCloud, was created out of the need for sisterhood to exist within the DMV area. What began as an idea has quickly turned into a movement of love, healing, positive energy, and a shared community.
CHACC is a proud host of the DC Circle.
Inside the Sister Circle
The sister circle meets on a Friday, once a month. As members arrive to the Sister Circle, they have an opportunity to fellowship with each other and enjoy a cup of tea from Good Thoughts Tea Company. Once the Sister Circle starts, members settle, sitting on decorated pillows, in a circle. The lead facilitator, begins the Sister Circle and welcomes everyone.
After the welcome, the circle move into a centering activity and then a check-in. We continue with group dialogue, small group activities and a self-care takeaway. Circles usually last around 90 minutes.
It has been found that there are many benefits to the sister circle. It is a special community where women can be themselves, be free, be vulnerable, and have the support of their sisterhood. It is a space where women can share experiences and wisdom. It is an opportunity for women to slow down, breathe, and reflect.
