A relational leadership initiative bringing leaders together in circle, over a virtual fire to explore what we know, what we want to understand, and what is possible for future generations.

Imagine gathering in a place where you are met with energy and respect. Where you are invited to have brave conversations. Imagine an interactive and integrated un-conference with less definitive answers and more re-imagining and inquiry; where there are less presentations and more presence; without powerpoints and instead, brave, heart-led conversations facilitated by hope-fueled truth tellers who encourage everyone to stay in the room.

Imagine listening and harvesting answers to what seems impossible as small groups emerge from what used to be boring break-out rooms, but are now collective circles of problem solving.

This is a FireCircle, and 2022 our theme is HEALING OUR SYSTEMS.

Day 1 (1)


A morning of collective inquiry and reimagining to explore what we collectively know, what we want to understand, and what is possible beyond what seems impossible.

Hour 1 - The Inquiry: How do we heal our systems? With guest conversationalists (tba) from Healthcare, Governance & Politics, Business & Capitalism, Finance & Banking. This is an in depth process of inquiry, questioning six layers deep. 

Hour 2 - The Conversation: What are our wonderings? Our wants? Our Re-imaginings? What collective solutions might emerge if we listen more than we talk? This hour invites all participants of the FireCircle to engage in a breakout session to connect, design-think, and engage in collective visioning and solution finding inspired by the morning’s inquiry. 

Hour 3 - The Harvesting: What are the insights? Bigger questions? Clues? Answers? This final hour tracks the intersections of repetitive clues, statements and invitations that came from each conversation and inquiry session to clearly identify the direction of our next collective step forward.

Day 1 (2)


SEPTEMBER 24th - 9am pdt (90 min) - CLOSING TALKING STICK 

Gather with us in a come-as-you-are morning designed to support the integration of the previous day’s learning through connection, listening and reflection. The first hour follows a traditional PowHERhouse wisdom circle with a brief check-in, followed by an emergent process of sharing, and closes with an invitation to those who would like to form a Braid of Activation over the coming year. 


What happens at the FireCircle doesn't stay there.

Your Voice matters.

Your Curiosity counts.


At the end of FireCircle 2022, PowHERhouse with Impact Arts will be creating and submitting a detailed Case for Support to the various levels of Government bodies, Labour Leaders, and Social Impact organizations who are in the position to bring forward the changes and reimaginings we gather through our conversations here with you, and at The Fire.
