Wisdom Circles

a mindful therapeutic group course

The wisdom circles are mindfulness group therapy designed to help you transform your depression, anxiety, and ADHD into embodied mental emotional health.

The Wisdom Circle Method developed and facilitated by Nina Be is so profoundly powerful that it was studied by researchers at Duke University.


I'm yoga therapist, Nina Be

and I specialize in Transformative Trauma.

For the past 40 years I have helped over 3,000 individuals free themselves from depression, PTSD, anxiety, grief and relationship issues with food and love.

Here is what you need to know...

There is nothing,
and I mean NOTHING,
"sick," "bad," or "broken" about you.

We ALL are in the process of transforming trauma into TRUTH, so that we can live fully and mindfully.

We gather in Wisdom Circles to collectively witness and experience opportunities and invitations for our trauma to transform.

We want you to have the support when you need!

“There is a special quality of stillness in a person who encounters the shadow wholeheartedly. Your body may relax in their company because it understands, in the subtle communications of their presence, that nothing is excluded in themselves, therefore nothing in you can be rejected. Such a person, who has given up guarding against the shadow, who has come to wear their scars with dignity, no longer squirms from discomfort or bristles at suffering. They no longer brace in avoidance of conflict. They carry a deep willingness to dance with the inconstancy of life. They've given up distancing as a strategy, and made vulnerability their ally.”

~ Toko-pa Turner

The Wisdom Circle Method

The Wisdom Circle Method developed & facilitated by nina be and has been studied by researchers at Duke University for its power to transform trauma. It draws on a wide range of ancient wisdom and modern knowledge.

  • Each Wisdom Circle begins with paying attention to the simple act of breathing into the body, as an introduction to feeling more alive, as stress is relieved. (MindBody Centering Yoga)
  • We then, rest together and notice feeling each part of the body, with respect and curiosity, in order to to reduce emotional reactivity and increase self-regulation. (Yoga Nidra)
  • As we slowly move, the body is invited to feel more comfort and calm for self regulation and health. (Polyvagal Theory)
  • The core relationship for our lives is with our bodies. When we understand the body better, how it grows and expresses, we understand how we are really doing in the world, moment to moment. This is embodiment. (Body Mind Centering)
  • As we develop a sense of Self, we can move into relationships with others, with knowledge of our tendencies of reactivity, which may be rooted in patterns of behavior from generations of familial, cultural, societal and spiritual practices. (Humanism/Family Systems)
  • The central portion of the session explores our expressive writing to strengthen each person’s voice and positive identity. (Expressive Writing)
  • We find that shifting into a more positive narrative and self talk can relieve the pressure of hopelessness, positive aspects of the human experience that make life worth living. (Positive Psychology)
  • Trauma happens on a spectrum, so waves of intensity ebb and flow. As we learn to tend to moment-to-moment conditions, we feel less abandoned and more supported, hence trusting ourselves. (C- PTSD research from Van de Kolk @ Trauma Institute)
  • Each Wisdom Circle Gathering ends with using a powerful mind-body-heart affirmation for processing where we are, where we may go and our commitment to stay with ourselves through it all. (EFT)
