Monthly Women Circles
Women Let’s Connect + Gather!
As Women We Flourish With Feminine Connection. A tribe, a village, a safe and sacred space for women to come together, use their voices, be heard, seen and supported. Women throughout history have gathered in circles to empower each other, share wisdom. and knowledge.
” Each time women gather in circle with each other, the world heals a little more”
Circles of women are nothing new; this tradition has been passed down by our ancestors.
The History of the Women’s Circle
Throughout history, women have gathered in sacred circles. Be it around a fire in prehistoric times, within hushed monasteries of the Middle Ages, in consciousness-raising groups in 1970’s living rooms or online groups in the digital age, women have long congregated to laugh, share, heal, care for children, grieve, and spiritually connect in community.
I decided to add a monthly women’s circle to the Aligned Living membership as I personally enjoy the community power, energy, and solidarity that is fostered when women convene and join together. In such gatherings, women can experience a deep authenticity within themselves – a truth or ‘realness’ that is often lacking as we tend to our day-to-day lives and its multitude of roles and responsibilities.
Women’s circles operate on an equality basis of when it comes to principles and values. Within the structure of the circle, there is no hierarchy; each woman’s voice is equally important, her story honoured and received fully. In this sacred space, a collective power is harnessed. And when there is focused intent on healing – individually and collectively – magic happens. The support, creativity, and sharing of ideas that is fostered in women’s circles has the power to translate into something much larger and more palpable. There is a ripple effect that positively impacts society at large.
None of us hold all the answers, but together as women we can share our light and find our way together. There is such a special energy and frequency that occurs in women’s circles that can only be described as magical and transformative. Your soul refuels and often you leave with a spark and inner joy.
Each month alongside the New and Full moon cycles that I host in the Aligned living membership, the woman’s circles are a unique space where we talk about a topic or theme for the month, we share, meditate, reflect, enjoy rituals like cacao ceremonies, womb healing and much more.
Some example of some topics may include:
- Mother Nature
- Women’s emotions
- Season healing
- Sex and sexuality
- Healing modalities
- Mothers Energy
- Female Beauty:
- Self sabotages
- Our Inner critics
- Women power
- Giving Birth: we birth projects, ideas, art, goals, relationships, babies and more.
- Death: dying, letting go and endings
Our monthly women’s circles both cultivate women’s connection and empowerment.
Why We Truly Need Women’s Circles Today
It could be said that in these transformative times of global conflict and economic uncertainty, with pandemics like COVID the women’s circle is needed more than ever.
In the words of Jean Shinoda Bolen, “When women come together and make a commitment to each other to be in a circle , they are creating a vessel of healing and transformation for themselves, and vehicle for change in their world”.
It is the Dalai Lama who also stated in the 2009 World Peace Summit visit to Vancouver, BC that the world will be saved by the western woman. Though feminine qualities of interconnection, vulnerability, relatedness, and cooperation have historically been undervalued in a patriarchal society which largely celebrates individuality, dominance, and competition, there is a growing sense that a mass planetary awakening is occurring.
Despite outward appearances of destruction and decline, human consciousness is evolving at a very rapid pace and, in these shifting times, feminine principles are central – if not essential! – to the new world that is being birthed.
