The Circle is everyday ceremony: the invention of our most ancient Godmothers, who upon witnessing the myriad ways nature exalted this humble shape, claimed it as the spiritual centre of their communities. Held by the simple rituals of opening & completion, honouring & appreciation, the Circle acts as a vehicle for both storytelling & transcending our stories. In Circle, we are conversing with the divine.
~ Baraka Elihu
In circle, like-minded mama’s come together to connect within this – our nurturing, inspiring community.
As one we put the outside world on hold and create an opportunity for women to come together in sacred space and sit in stillness. With deep reverence for each other, we connect, reflect and celebrate ourselves and each other.
When women are seen, heard and held in this way we can transform guilt, overwhelm and disconnection and honor all parts of the mothering journey so that you step away from circle feeling empowered and able to be who you need to be in your world.
