Women’s Circles

As modern women, living in a fast paced culture, we have lost touch with the sacredness of the lunar cycle and our menstrual cycle, and all of the wisdom both can provide for us. In ancient times women gathered at the new and full moons to learn more about their inner self, their menstrual cycle, bring the lunar energy into alignment with their human life.

Moon circles are gaining traction for modern women because, although we force ourselves to do it all both personally and professionally, we are realizing that we are not the same woman each week of the month. Not only is there different lunar and astrological energy, but there are different hormones pumping through our body requires different dietary, exercise, emotional support during each week of our cycle. Sitting in moon circles each month empowers women to align their personal and professional navigation from deep alignment and energy.

In the new moon, we are invited into the darkness. It is a time to go within, be introspective, and set intentions for the month ahead. Just as in the darkness of the earth’s soil, the dark new moon allows us to plant seeds and nurture them over the next two weeks leading up to the full moon.

In the full moon, we see our intentions come to fruition. What was once dark in the new moon is now illuminated by the full moon, so we can see the big picture. The bright moon allows us to see and release what no longer serves us, and provides light to celebrate what we are manifesting.  

Each circle has the same structure however a unique in expression based on the lunar and astrological insights, as well as the group of women who gather. We reconnect with ourselves, our bodies, and other women through meditation, calling in the energy, intention setting, reviewing the lunar and astrological insights, applying them to our unique circumstances, and inner Goddess work. Then we activate and embody the energy through Breathwork.

Women leave the circles feeling empowered, inspired, lighter, connected, having a newfound reverence and appreciation for their cycle, their body, their breath and bring that clarity into their professional and personal experiences. 

Women and Men’s circles

I sit with modern men and women and hear their deepest desires and darkest pains. What is fascinating to me, they struggle with the same thing. Men do not know how to be what women want and desperately want to. Women do not know how to be what men want and desperately want to. At the core of this desperation is a desire to be seen, heard, understood, and loved.

We do not need to be in relationship to experience that, although it is possible and a beautiful practice and embodiment. What we seek is the deeper layer to be seen and heard and in connection. So in the circles we connect with one another at that level. Men and women get to see each other through a new lense. We honor the Native American traditions where women were the portal to source and men received guidance and direction.

Men and women who attend the circles experience vulnerability, clearing and release, opening to the sacred feminine, divine masculine, release old paradigms in a very grounded and practical way. Then we expand into this way of being through our breath. I co-facilitate this circle with a former client who is a 30-year executive producer, 20-year spiritual and divine masculine seeker, and 10-year shamanic plant medicine guide.

I had a really amazing experience at the New Moon Circle. I connected to a deeper part of myself and got a very clear message from a Higher Power about an important conversation I needed to have. I felt so empowered by the clarity and I finally found the courage to have the conversation. The result was so freeing and empowering. in the weeks following the circle a dream job manifested and i've since been promoted. Thank you for helping guide me to this place of a higher Spiritual connection and tuning in to my own truth.

the moon circle is powerful! I’m in awe of what manifested from my intention in the moon circle - to connect with the women in my family.  I thought it would be through my mom’s side and spirit had another direction. After 25 years estranged from my father's side of the family, my uncle and niece found reconnected with me this past week.  i learned about my grandmother and great grandmother, and my niece and I are kindred spirits - it is as if we have known each other all our lives. I am now planning a trip to visit both of them in Mexico, just as I had intended in our breathwork session. i Can’t wait for the next moon circle. Thank you for your support on my path.

Gwen's circle was such an enlightening experience to share with other amazing women. I worked through mental boundaries that had been holding me back. I woke up the next day feeling mentally clear and energetically lighter that I have felt in years. The Goddess energy in the circle was so relevant that it brought me to tears. I look forward to the next circle.
