Not gonna lie, I used to think that a New Moon/Full Moon Women’s circle was conducted by crazy hippie ladies.
In my head I saw a circle of women holding up their magic crystals and howling at the moon by light of a bonfire.
I’d never been to one, so I had no idea.
I also grew up Southern Baptist in a small town in Louisiana.
So, I lived a very naïve and sheltered life until I got a job at a local coffee shop at 16 and told them that I “had” to work Sunday’s so I could get out of going to church with my parents.
Motivated to leave small town Louisiana, I saved nearly every penny I made to move to Denver, CO.
So, the morning after I graduated high-school, that’s what I did.
And I spent the next 10 years moving from place to place, stumbling through life with no real friends, and no support system.
Even to this day, I get jealous of many of my doula clients who’re having their babies in much more stable conditions – an established career, a tribe of friends, family around.
I even fantasize about what it would be like to have started my family now at 33 with my current man in our current situation now that our lives are more stable and established.
Anyway, it wasn’t until the end of last year, when I started tantra school to become a sex/love/relationship coach that I realized what true sisterhood – having a tribe of women who support and believe in you – is all about.
The only time I’d ever felt I belonged to something was my church family growing up – even though by the time I was 13/14, I knew that I didn’t believe the same things as them.
And as soon as I didn’t believe the same things, I got rejected…yep! I got in a fight with the youth minister when I was 16 – hence, I told the coffee shop I HAD to work Sunday’s 😉
And not until recently have I ever felt a “part” of anything or like I belonged.
I didn’t know what it would be like to have a group of women who truly believed in my power, whom I could call on to be heard, seen, and held in a truly supportive way and to offer the same for them.
Not in the kind of way where you bitch and complain and they agree that you’re a victim. No! Screw that shit.
I needed women who’d hold space for me and offer non-judgmental reflection and support.
So when I started my 600-hour, year long sex/love/relationship coaching certification program, I immediately became a part of a tribe of 165 of the most sexually liberated, leading-edge woman on the planet.
And with the snap of a finger, I found sisterhood for the first time in my life.
A safe container to connect, share, support, heal & transform was given to me right away and there was a feeling of “coming home” right then and there.
5 months later, I had the opportunity to meet 50 of them in Mexico for our live training portion of the program.
Starstruck as I was, it was like meeting a bunch of celebrities for the first time – all 50 of them at once.
Women whom I’d connected so deeply with via video and live calls and bore my soul to online, finally meeting in one place. It was surreal.
When I came home from Mexico, I realized that no longer having a sisterhood within my own community was an option.
I knew that if it were vital for my own well-being, then it must be for other woman in our community too who feel like they don’t belong or have a sisterhood they feel connected with.
That’s why I’ve created a safe container for woman of all ages, paths, and sexual orientations to come together as one:
- To share our journey, insights and stories.
- To be a safe space for women to be heard, seen and to transform.
- To inspire self-forgiveness, empowerment and healthy relationships with other women.
- To embrace the feminine essence by embracing ourselves, our rhythms and intuition.
So if sisterhood is something you’re yearning for too, I welcome you to join me for our first New Moon Women’s Circle at The Yoga Garden, this Sunday, July 23rd at 11:15-12:45.
The July 23rd New Moon Women’s Circle will involve a welcoming with introductions and agreements for engaging the group.
We’ll do a Unify heart meditation and visualization with this month’s theme followed by a sharing exercise.
After that will be a short break, and we’ll end the circle with a new moon intention-setting exercise and a closing.
Come experience being seen, heard, and held and to see, hear, and hold one another as we redefine and rebuild sisterhood. While each of us has our own path, we also cannot walk alone!
Check out the Facebook event with all the details here!
I hope to see you there!
Unify in sisterhood,
