Sister circles have been used for many years to by women to gather and join a community of support while encouraging the individual members to be themselves fully. Community feeds our soul! We realize that we are not alone because there is a network of women who is the root bed that upholds us through life's challenges. Being part of a women's circle also helps us to reconnect to the cycles and rhythms of Nature, both around us and within us. With this knowledge and awareness we can navigate the joys and challenges of life more skillfully and authentically.
This circle we celebrate Winter Solstice and Yuletide - the shortest day and longest night of the year. Traditionally it is celebrated as the rebirth of ...the Light, with each successive day lengthening. With the return of the Light we celebrate hope, faith and the deep inner work that gives us space for what will be reborn in the upcoming cycle.
My priestess sister Christine Koth from Radiant Circle will be co-facilitating this circle with me. In this circle we will offer a centering meditation, honoring of the elements and directions, ceremony and ritual, and orientation lesson/transmission of the Solstice season. Other potential offerings include chanting, singing, drumming (bring hand drum if you have it), current astrology information, lighting candles, and journaling.
All of those in attendance will be able to participate to the degree they feel comfortable to.
Weather permitting the event may change to outdoors. Notifications will be posted to this event if location changes. Please make sure to bring layers of clothing.
