Please consider establishing Circles of Elders in your community to support and mentor those undergoing massive change. I have a beautiful vision of interested women and men taking the initiative and establishing a Circle of Elders in your hometown - i.e. in towns and countries all over the world with their own unique structures and focus.
There is such exponential change happening that we literally won’t know our ‘old selves’ by the end of the year. I used to think Circles would be composed of those with over 50 years of life experience - however, in this day and age wisdom not only comes with experiences - some are born with it. So, Elders can be of any age - anyone who has buckets of common sense, an attitude of service to others, is innovative with a willingness to accept responsibility and leadership for the good of others and a commitment to their own personal life purpose.
I'd SO appreciate it if readers who see the value in this idea and establish, or who have developed a Circle to inform us in the comments here.

'Circles of Elders' is a vision I've long held, and I feel sure others also have in their own unique ways and millions?? have already activated their role and volunteer guide and mentor. I silently stepped into this place of responsibility many years ago without fanfare - with just a laser-like determination to raise the bar on love, kindness, creativity, spirituality, and the care for people, animals and the environment in whatever ways I can. My energies go primarily into seeding (Seeder/Cedar) and mentoring in areas of so-called paranormal abilities which are actually entirely normal and innate, a greater understanding of death and the afterlife, and the psychological, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our Great Awakening and transition to the New Earth of 4D and 5D consciousness.
These Circles of Elders need to be self-organising so I won't be writing a blueprint as YOUR creations will vary immensely due to who is involved, your location and interests and energy. Some will continue to 'talk' and many like Katie, Christine and Sandra get organised and take action. The need to go beyond 'just talking' to 'just doing it' is great at this transformational time in our evolution.
Imagine if everyone who steps up and identifies as Elder takes 100% responsibility for establishing their Circle and co-creates with others taking 100% adult responsibility. If your creation is to succeed it requires nothing less. It needs work and a willingness to make a difference and show up, take the initiative and commit then gather like-minded friends and colleagues to do the same and just do it!
The baseline of exceptional kindness, humour, skill sharing, imagination, confidentiality, generosity, wisdom, mentoring and innovation remains the same whether you live in a village in Romania or South Africa, a city in the Netherlands or New Zealand or a remote region in Australia or Mongolia.
Here is the briefest of briefest brainstorming to help get you started. I'm a great one for first establishing crystal clear CLARITY and getting details visually on a whiteboard or in a special book. I never post anything on my blog that I have not or would not do myself. Educate yourself from those you respect, honoured indigenous people, and Google and Siri. First formulate your specific question then merely ENQUIRE.
Self-Organising Circles of Elders
If not you, who?
- A Circle can be made of one, two, three, four or many more people
- It's requires well thought through decisions, action, care and commitment
- Determine your specific areas of interest and the needs of your family, friends, workplace, community or country
- Determine your level of commitment and available time and resources
- Determine exactly how you will show up and always honour that
- Determine who you wish to invite into your Circle
- Ensure generosity of Spirit, validation of others and clear communication
- Discuss in fullness with everyone involved and establish communication procedures
- Clarify your Circle's aims and have each member do the same
- Google Elderhood, Sage Circles, Wisdom Circles, Male Mentoring etc
- Envision, Enjoy, Anchor, Organise, Do, Celebrate, Reflect and Review. Repeat.
- Have fun and take excellent care of yourself too
- Do it
- Do it
- Do it - Our world needs us.
I have no affiliation with these groups - however, they and others have done a terrific job of establishing the scaffolding for eldership, and their ideas will help in your creations.
The Eldership Project
The greater majority of my work goes uncommented on, nevertheless, I continue in the trust that
it inspires readers into more of their life purpose, self-knowledge and spiritual understanding.
Please know I would genuinely appreciate reports on your creations as a result of this seeding of Circles of Elders.
