Seasonal Women's Circles
Seasonal Women's Circles
When women gather magic happens! These women's circles are a safely held space to be yourself, nourish your inner life and connect with community.
Connect with Seasons ~ we meet on dates at the turn of the season, giving us a moment to pause and reflect on what has past and vision what is to come. We do this through journaling, readings and nature mandala creation.
Connection with Self ~ clear some space from busy life and cultivate multi-sensory perception to connect with your inner wisdom. We do this through guided meditation and gentle yoga.
Connection with Women ~ listening and sharing creates connection and a sense of our common humanity. We'll share our reflections on seasonal themes. You're free to share or not. It's a very relaxed space :)
Winter (Imbolc) Women's Circle
Friday 3rd August 6 - 8pm
at Waverton Community Hall 75 Bay Rd Waverton
SEASONAL THEME: IMBOLC. What seeds are you carrying? What is stirring in your heart and mind? What is soon to emerge? How will you tend to these seeds?
Imbolc, in the Celtic seasonal calendar marks the beginning of the lambing season and signals the beginning of Spring and the stirrings of new life. It is Feile Brighde, the 'quickening of the year'. The original word Imbolg means 'in the belly'. All is pregnant and expectant - and only just visible if at all, like the gentle curve of a 'just-showing' pregnancy. It is the promise of renewal, of hidden potential, of earth awakening and life-force stirring. Here is hope. We welcome the growth of the returning light and witness Life's insatiable appetite for rebirth.
It is time to let go of the past and to look to the future, clearing out the old, making both outer and inner space for new beginnings. This can be done in numerous ways, from spring cleaning your home to clearing the mind and heart to allow inspiration to enter for the new cycle. It's a good time for wish-making or making a dedication.
ELEMENTS FOR THE WINTER / IMBOLC WOMEN’S CIRCLE
Meditation / Co-creation of our alter: I'll offer a guided meditation/connecting in with Self and with the Season, from there we'll create our seasonal alter with any flora we have brought along (please bring some, I will also have a collection)
Circle Sharing: a facilitated conversation on the seasonal theme - the final month of winter, pre-Imbolc- signaling the beginning seeds of spring are stirring.
Movement: We'll finish by awakening the body with movement inspired by feminine yoga and finish with a guided relaxation/ yoga nidra.
