WITH SARMA ILGENFRITZ

Do you have a practice, project, or habit that you want to do consistently,
but it’s just not happening? 


...And you know that if you were accountable to someone other than yourself,
it would make all the difference?  

 

If you answered YES, this Accountability Circle is for you!

ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS, NO MATTER WHAT

YOU'RE WORKING ON

We’ll share what we are up to, share structures, make promises!  Then, with kindness and compassion, hold each other accountable!  We’ll plan for four weeks, but leave it open ended. 

CHOOSE HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE

Here at Althea, we believe all are welcome, and that lifting up and empowering our community, meeting people where they are, and  making our gatherings, classes, and opportunities accessible to everyone, is part of our mission and calling. 

The cost of the Accountability Circles is on a pay-what-you-can sliding scale, with $5 to start ($25 for the full 5 Accountability Circle Sessions) to adequately cover the facilitation of the group, promotional costs, as well to cover scholarship for the group. If you are interested in a scholarship, please contact us and we can follow up with you about how you can participate!

If you are able to contribute any additional funds or if you would like to gift someone this opportunity, please send us an email at: staff@altheacenter.org.


 

WHAT THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE IS NOT

WHAT THE ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLE IS  

  • A judgmental, exclusive space where you beat yourself up for not being productive or reaching your goals
     

  • A space for comparing yourself against the journey of your peers
     

  • A space dedicated just to productivity & deadlines

  • A non-judgmental, inclusive space where we hold each other accountable with mutual love, kindness, & compassion
     

  • A space for helping you be your best self
     

  • A growing & learning opportunity that includes communal motivation and encouragement 
     

  • A space to be inspired & motivated
     

  • An investment in yourself! As well as a valuable tool that will help you in other areas of life.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT ACCOUNTABILITY CIRCLES:

I have loved being a part of the accountability circle!  It has provided me a gentle, safe and loving space to explore my priorities, and also, what has gotten in the way of keeping promises to myself.
- Vicki

I have so enjoyed this weekly zoom gathering with Sarma!! She has brought out the joy of accountability, without the the self recrimination and beat up I tend to bring to it.  I am able to embrace some promises I have wanted to keep for myself but seem to always manage to let them slide.  Now I’m supported in a group that shares my feelings, agenda, and that helps to keep me on track.  

Sarma and the group bring inspirational ideas and and ongoing encouragement which is what I needed in a good humored and caring way.  I look forward to our meeting each week!! Thank you, Sarma and my group mates that help keep this program happening!! Please join us on this fun journey!

Sarma's Accountability Circle was fantastic!  First, it was fun! Second, it was a safe place to share and be vulnerable with both my successes and "so called failures".  Third, we went deep and I ended up learning so much more than I expected to learn from all the sharing that we did.

Sarma Ilgenfritz,
Accountability Circle Facilitator

Why am I inviting you to join an
Accountability Circle?

 

Because being accountable for what you say is most effective when you speak it into the listening ear of another - or a group of others. I've had 20+ years experience with groups where promises, declarations, and being held accountable were at the core of our work.  If I tell you I will arrive at 10:13, you can know I'll be there at 10:13.   
 

Being a mother and grandmother has taught me that everything works best when kindness, compassion, and fun are present.  I'm good at seeing the best in people, and my joy is hearing others speak their truth and be enlivened by it. 

I want to support YOU on your journey and show you that, yes, accountability can be fun!

I'm rooting for you!
