We Invite You To Connect With Us and Other Wise Women ...

Who We Are:
We are two women who have been sitting in circle for over 18 years.
We believe that a circle provides a natural way for women to gather and creates a safe place to congregate for confidences, support, ceremony and tradition.  
It has worked for us and we have now been successfully bringing this format to a larger community of women.

Our Mission:
To join with other women and meet our challenges together to help the vibrations of ourselves and Mother Earth.

What We Do:
So far in our journey, we have taken the circle idea and extended it to a larger community as a way for women to meet safely and spiritually.

What Circles are All About:
Why Have One - A circle provides a natural way for women to gather and create a safe place where family and friends can congregate for ceremony, tradition, confidences and support. From ancient to modern times circles has been used by people to respond to the needs of their community.

What it takes - Purpose and Intention - Members have to want to connect in a meaningful way and create a community where all members are part of the circle. A commitment to making the circle a priority is necessary in order for it to work.

What it does - The circle reminds you of your sacred path by bringing the sacred into everyday life through ritual and ceremony. As a circle collects its unique tools and special objects a sense of ritual and familiarity is developed.

Why it is Universal - Circles cross all religions and belief systems. Circles can be simple, such as lighting a single candle or can get as complex as you like. It is very flexible and adapts easily to any occasion.

We use the Circle Format to:
To Find The Goddess Within Us All
To Embrace, Invent and Share Ceremony to help us Shift Realities to a positive space.
To Connect to the Sisterhood we Create Together.
To Use Practical Tools to enhance our Spiritual Journey.

Some Areas & Issues We Address in Circle:
We define and access the feminine principle and explore how this impacts our everyday lives.
We gather with women at natural earth times such as solstices and equinoxes or just when the “time feels right”. 
We explore our transitions from maiden to mother to matriarch to wise woman and sprinkle it with the ceremony and respect these times deserve.
We provide individual circles with friends, mother-daughters or family.
We create a safe space to take on the “hard stuff” of relationships, feelings, and sticky issues
We are always open to "the next thing" .

Gives a feeling of safety, warmth and comfort

Brings out the collective wisdom of women when they gather

How we do it:
We borrow from different cultures and traditions to create ceremony
We use ceremonial tools to empower us such as:
Talking stick - for respect.
Sage, Feathers, Rattles- to remove blocks and negativity
Movement and meditation to open our centers

Singing, chanting, spiritual cleansing
