WOMEN’S CIRCLES 2024

 

Imagine sitting in a space where you feel held and heard,

Where you feel safe enough to voice anything that may be arising for you,

Envision a space where women support and encourage each other to GROW, EXPAND and step FULLY into their POWER.

Dream into a space where you feel safe enough to explore your inner world and be able to clear blocks/shed layers  that may be holding you back from you being truly, authentically YOU!

Sitting in sacred circle with other women allows us to be held and heard deeply by each other. It’s a safe space that supports us to re connect with ourselves and access the true magic that our soul contains.

Practicing the art of listening deeply also gives us a chance to tap into our empathy and patience, keeping us present in the moment without thinking about how we will respond.

Gathering in women’s circle reconnects us and activates the power of our ancient ways. Circling with women reminds us of the times when women were honoured for their feminine wisdom and their connection to Pachamama’s / Mother Earth’s healing powers.

It is a space where we can appreciate who we really are as women and our place in this society. Together we remember where we come from, where we are going, and how we want to get there. Together we envision and manifest our dreams.

A women’s circle helps you realise you are not alone.

Have you ever felt isolated while facing a challenging situation, feeling that no one understood you?

In a women’s circle, you get to hear the challenges of other women and often find out they face similar obstacles as you.

This can not only help you get through your challenge but it also creates a commonality in which you no longer feel so alone.

A Medicine Woman’s Prayer

I will not rescue you,

For you are not powerless,

I will not fix you,

For you are not broken,

I will not heal you,

For l see you in your wholeness.

I will walk with you through the darkness,

as you remember your light

– Sheree Bliss Tilsley

 

Location: Acorn and Oak- Upstairs 46 Armstrong St North, Ballarat 

First Thursday of each month

Arrival will be from 7pm – herbal tea and time to connect and chat with each other and settle in 

Circle starting at 7:30-9:30pm

This is a closed 11-month container – what l have learnt over time is that the journey is much deeper when we circle with the same women throughout the year. For this reason, the monthly circles are only open for a small window each year to sign up. 

 

Each month we will be exploring:

  • Talking Bowl/Sharing- an opportunity for each of us to share what is going on in our internal worlds via prompts to explore each month.
  • Drum Journey  Each month we will go on a 30 minute drum journey.  Not only is it an amazing way to meditate, it is also a wonderful tool as it can relax, energise, soothe, and heal. It has been proven to have healing effects on your physical and emotional bodies. Recent studies have shown that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system, and produces feelings of well-being.
  • Feminine Embodiment Practice– This gentle form of movement is not dance or yoga and is suitable for everyBODY! Embodiment explores the relationship between our physical being and our energy. It involves the interaction of our body, thoughts, and actions. Feminine Embodiment Practice uses the body as a tool for healing through self-awareness, mindfulness, connection, self-regulation, finding balance, and creating self-acceptance.

 

“To be home in one’s body is to be at home everywhere. Embodiment is about being at home. It is about being present, being here, and wanting to be here….Being fully present in the now and in the body go together. This in turn overcomes fear and anxiety. Body and soul reunite. What we believe in becomes embodied in the work of our bodies. As Jung put it, ‘The difference we make between the psyche and the body is artificial. It is done for the sake of a better understanding. In reality, there is nothing but a living body. That is the fact; and psyche is as much a living body as body is living psyche: it is just the same’” (Matthew Fox, 147)

 

  • Cosmic weather report– exploring what is going on astrologically and how it may be impacting us
  • Sabbats– By connecting in with the seasons of the year we connect deeper and deeper into ourselves and our heart space.  We will be exploring the medicine that they carry e.g.- autumn and spring equinox, winter and summer solstice, Ostara, yule, Mabon, etc. and how we can weave their magic into our lives…

 

Begin your dance…………Be aware of the thoughts, blocks and resistance you feel as you lean into wanting to begin your journey….these are all normal thoughts, feelings etc it means that the dance has begun……what will your next dance move be?
