Here is my latest article with Yogi Approved. This is my last written peice for them until next year. I have ideas for future articles however I am now working on an illustrated poetry book. Enjoy!
Women’s circles are essentially a gathering of women, for women.
They’re often practiced within a circular setting, using a decorative altar or mandala as the focal point in the middle. These circles feel inclusive and mimic the cycles of nature and the comfort of the womb space.
While women’s gatherings have been around for thousands of years, they have gained popularity recently – especially in the yoga and wellness community.
What Are Women’s Circles?
Women’s circles allow for sharing, support, and feelings of safety within a non-judgemental environment.
It can be very healing to experience validation and to feel honored by other women, especially in a world where women are often taught to compete with each other, compare bodies and status, be jealous, gossip, judge, etc.
New article up with Rebelle Society all about the ancient history of women’s circles, what they are, why they’re important for modern women and my love for the Be Woman Project.
I have had a facination for witches covens, goddess gatherings and priestess temples for so long now. I do feel this is a past life coming through- perhaps I was once an ancient Egyptian Priestess? Who knows? I really wanted to write a piece that discusses the general history of women’s circles in the ancient world, tribal communities and their comeback in Western society.
This is really only an introduction and a guide into this world and I’m working on a Goddess gathering book that includes working with Goddess archetypes in your ciricles and for yourself, meditations, visual journeys, how to create your own circle, art activities for women and other lovely things like making and preparing herbal teas and blends for specific goddess personalities- What would an Aphrodite woman love to drink? Maybe a Saraswati woman loves Oolong? My own poetry and illustrations will be included with mantra and pagan blessings. All kinds of yummy stuff for the modern goddess!
Until then, have a read of this article:
“Her words, like the hum of a
bee to the lavender flower; a soft, gentle murmur of devotion and
gratitude. Inside her heart walks the goddess — barefoot and shining
like a vast ocean unfolding and dancing, as her great eagle wings rise
with the moon to kiss the stars.”
