What is a Moon Circle?
A moon circle is a gathering of women that meet at the time of the New Moon.
In ancient times women gathered at the new and full moons to connect with themselves, their monthly cycles, other women and the elements.
This sacred space was a place of learning and growth for each woman.
She would learn from the older women of the Tribe the art of healing and herblore, of divination and connecting with her sixth sense.
In modern times, the need for space to learn and grow as an individual, celebrating ourselves as women and all our unique gifts is needed now more than ever before. The fast pace of modern life can be navigated more easily when balanced by a monthly practice, connecting with the energy of the natural world, the energy all around us and our own personal energy.
Why New Moon?
The moon is the feminine energy to the Sun’s masculine energy and she moves through the night sky over the course of a 28 ½ day cycle. At the time of the new moon, the energy of the feminine, is at its lowest. It is a time of introspection and vulnerability, a time when emotions run deep and the shadow side of our personality can show through.
This is why traditionally women would seek a safe space to feel nurtured and cared for as their energy dipped. It is often described as the time when hidden wounds will surface, giving an opportunity to heal. This healing is easier when fully supported and held within a safe space like a Circle.
When women work with their cycle, they are far more productive, creative, less stressed and overall happier. Attending a regular Circle will help them to connect to and recognise the ebbs and flow of their energy and to learn to work with that energy rather than against it.
Regular attendees will often report their cycle will start to sync with that of the Moon as their energy matches that of the universe around them.
It is a time to look back at what went before and forward to what we would like to change.
What to expect from our Moon Circle
We will come together for a New Moon ceremony so that we use the Moon energy to manifest and grow energetically.
Are you ready to understand your feminine archetypal energy and the power you have within? We will release the thoughts, emotions and beliefs that have held you back from the previous month and tune into the energies for this New Moon so that you are fully supported energetically for the month ahead.
Our ceremony will include guided meditations, energy releasing work, and sharing in a safe and supportive environment.
The Benefits of Attending a Regular Moon Circle
Attending a Moon Circle means you get to focus on your needs, creates a regular monthly practice, increases self-esteem. It is a time to receive rather than give, where your emotional needs are met. You are part of a community and have support.
It is a time of stillness in a life of busy-iness, a time to reflect and learn, to develop your spiritual connection. Connect with feminine energy, develop your intuition.
Honour yourself by being able to share how you feel and improve your Physical well-being by relaxing and letting go of stress hormones by mediation, breath work and sharing of knowledge
Ladies that have attended other Moon Circles say:
“I enjoyed my first experience of the New Moon Circle and getting to know more about it. Jo facilitated the session with warmth, knowledge and guidance. A lovely space to share and listen. I enjoyed the guided meditations, very calming. Thank you Jo!” AP – London
“Moon Circle is an opportunity to be raw and open. A chance to take off your cloak and be yourself without fear and judgment. Women can be judgemental of each other and Moon Circles encourage us to find our inner sisterhood and reconnect, encouraging support, love and lifelong friendships”
“ I had never come across Moon Circles before and am so glad I have experienced them with Jo. What a peaceful, calming and informative experience. So much so that when I attended my chiropractor after the most recent Moon Circle, she commented on the peaceful and calm energy I was giving off and wanted to know what I had been doing to achieve this. Thank you Jo, for holding the space in such a loving and supportive way. I have the dates for the rest of the year already in my diary!” PT – Scotland
“It’s unbelievable to think that on that New Moon cycle women from many different places geographically are all connecting and coming together sharing love, joy and healing, it’s my favourite part of the Circle, knowing that I have this connection with other women”
