Moving toward the Millionth Circle: Energizing the Global Woman’s Movement is a sequel to Dr. Bolen’s popular 1999 The Millionth Circle, with a slightly different focus. Her first book describes how real change happens when a critical number of people adopt a new perspective, with ways to create women’s circles with a sacred center. While still about women’s circles, this new book focuses more on activism and how these circles can sustain, support, and be a sanctuary for, women working for change in their lives and in the world. Hardback. ISBN 9781573241762.
