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.
