Monthly Ceremonial Women’s Circle
March Theme: New Moon, Ostera, Spring Equinox
Focus: What seeds are we planting and what do we want to birth in our lives, in this new community, and in our own communities?
Women hold the medicine our world needs. The world needs your creativity, vision, voice like never before.
You are invited to join us for our monthly women’s wisdom & healing circles to gather in community and sisterhood. Celebrate each other. Be seen. Be heard. Be witnessed. Be supported.
WHY WOMEN NEED CIRCLES
Many women can lose sight of themselves in every day demands, pressures, routine and multi-tasking, supporting their partner or children, caring for their homes, juggling a career, paying the bills, etc.
It can be very healing to experience validation and to feel honored by other women, especially in a world where women are often taught to compete with each other, compare bodies and status, be jealous, gossip, judge, etc. Women were conditioned over 500 years to be this way.
We are changing this story, and reclaiming what was taken from us, AND need a safe space to land more than ever before.
Women’s gatherings have been around for thousands of years. Once persecuted for during the burning times of witches, the resurgence of women’s circles is gaining traction.
These circles are designed to allow for sharing, support, and feelings of safety within a non-judgmental nurturing environment supported by two highly skilled facilitators with many decades of experience.
These circles fall in alignment of the NEW MOON cycles. Each month, we will meet on the Sunday before or after the NEW MOON which is around the 3rd Sunday of the month. Specific dates are posted.
Each month, we will have a theme surrounding the new moon, but the themes are not set in stone. Like water, the idea is to go with the flow as each woman’s story is heard and honored.
Even though the flow each month may be different depending upon the theme, we will incorporate:
- circle share time & deep council
- Tibetan singing bowl medicine
- Ritual & ceremony
- Experientials geared toward healing, community, self-love, releasing old patterns, clarifying vision.
- Celebrating and integrating the gifts that are uniquely yours and tapping into your resources.
We will offer light snacks and herbal teas. The community is encouraged to bring something to share as well.
What you will gain:
These circles are designed to provide a safe sacred space to be witnessed, celebrate each other, build connection rooted in community and help you create a deeper awareness and connection to the inner wisdom in a very nurturing environment.
