Women's Wisdom & Healing Circle
Let your light shine
2017 will be my fourth year of hosting these beautiful circles. The first circle in January 2014 was the culmination of a seed sown by both myself and Georgie Catling. We ran the circles together for two years until she moved out of the area. I continue to hold the circles as they take on a life and energy of their own in a truly wonderful organic way.
Who are the circles for?
Women's circles are ancient in their origin with many aims including bonding, sharing energy, and creating ritual. Open to all women we create a supportive environment to actively nurture who you truly are. As women gathered together we connect to something bigger than ourselves, something that is deeply familiar, yet a distant memory. An intricately woven web of inner treasures await us when we connect to share our voices, our food, our company, our healing, our wisdom, and our hearts.
What the day entails
We celebrate the changing energy of the seasons and the cyclical nature of the earth with the festivals of The Wheel of The Year. As women, we too are cyclical, our energy connects and flows with the active, bright and outward focusing Sun during Spring and Summer, the inner reflective and intuitive Moon during Autumn and Winter and with Gaia our rooted, and sensuous Mother Earth throughout the year as we sow our seeds for growth and release that which is no longer necessary in our lives. There are cycles within cycles as we flow monthly with the moon and yearly with the sun. The wheel of the year is also the journey of the goddess from the Maiden, Mother, Enchantress and Crone as we meet her within and celebrate our cyclical journey.
The day is supportive and nurturing. Meditation, ritual, creativity, healing, connecting, sharing, laughter and tears, having fun, gaining insight, awareness, personal and spiritual growth in a safe and non judgemental environment is what these circles are all about. We have a craft aspect (see pics below) and the idea is not to create something perfect but to enjoy the creative process. Whatever comes up for you is an opportunity for healing within the circle. Come and join us for a beautiful day!
These photos show some past examples of the creative element: sewing a goddess, painting mandalas, making willow dream catchers, clay labyrinths and this beautiful wall hanging - a colourful collaboration of painted and stitched squares. Lucky me, as I have the honour of hanging it up at home when we're not in circle.
All 2017 Circles will be held at the beautiful setting of The Strawbale Studio, Michael's Folly, Henderson Place, Epping Green, Herts SG13 8NE
- Samhain Circle - Sunday 29th October 10am-4:30pm Samhain is the festival of remembrance, the time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest, a time to honour our ancestors. A time to retreat within and connect to our inner life force as the growing energy of the moon guides us and offers greater understanding of our intuition, inner wisdom and creativity. This festival marks the transition between Autumn and Winter. It is also the transition from the dynamic inward energy of the Enchantress to the deep wisdom of the Crone in our yearly cycle of female archetypal energy. For the craft aspect of the day we will each create some incense to take home. £60 - price includes all art & craft materials.
And so the wheel of the year turns again...
Booking is essential as each circle is limited to ten spaces.
I look forward to creating the 2017 circles with you!
