Have you ever wished you were part of a sacred sisterhood?
There’s something magical about women’s circles. It may seem like we just get together to talk but so much more happens, especially in an intentional circle of women who are committed to living a spiritual and awakened life. Dreams are supported, hearts are healed and tired, taxed spirits feel lifted and revitalized. In a close group of creative women who trust their intuition and gather to celebrate spirit, you feel empowered, loved and cherished.
Without this kind of support you are forced to carve out little moments every day to try and nurture yourself. You’ve probably tried making time to eat healthier, fit in a bit of exercise when you can or sit down to color yourself calm. You really want to take care of yourself and you know you need to make yourself a priority in your own life but you’re not having much fun doing it on your own.
Maybe it’s not more solitude you need. Maybe it’s more sisterhood.
If you had a place you could go where you felt supported and where you could unload, cry, laugh, relax, check in with yourself and figure out what you want and need, you’d be able to release whatever is bothering you, work through any lingering emotional issues and go home feeling clear, grounded and rejuvenated. You’d be better able to take care of everyone else you love because your spiritual and emotional needs were met.
What I’ve learned in my years as an Intuitive Therapist is women need support to thrive. We are natural caregivers. In fact, most of us take care of everyone else’s needs before even sitting down to ask ourselves what we need. We do this without thinking. It becomes second nature to us. But as big and wide as our hearts are, they can become depleted, overworked or stretched too thin. And fitting in alone time to journal or take a walk outside is helpful but I’ve been lucky enough in my work to witness the miracles, synchronicities and deep healing that happens when women come together to support each other.
It is one thing to pull out your journal and write your tears out and quite another to sit in a circle of soul friends, rest your head on a sister’s shoulders and finally let out what’s really been bothering you while someone fills your cup of tea, another offers a hug and someone passes you a tissue.
When you sit in a circle of women who have become like soul sisters to you, just walking in the room makes your body relax and your spirit heave a sigh of relief.
But developing the kind of intimacy that nurtures you in this way takes time.
I created the Moon Sisters Art and Ceremony Circle because sisterhood has been a saving grace in my life. So has ceremony and art. I wanted to weave the three together in a perfect combination of support, laughter, friendship and healing. I crave deep, intimate sisterhood where I can connect with my inner wise woman, play with art and my intuition and receive meaningful, loving support when I need it.
And I know I’m not alone.
This is a unique women’s circle experience. It is a circle that asks you to make a one year commitment because it is for women who are ready to nurture themselves and each other in a deep and meaningful way. Retreats are wonderful. Workshops are fun too but meeting the same group of women consistently over a year brings a depth and closeness that one time meetings just can’t compare to.
The 2016 Moon Sisters Art and Ceremony Circle meets twice a month in my home in Redwood Meadows (a small town near Bragg Creek, Alberta). This is a very intimate group. Only six women will be able to participate. Every second Friday evening of the month we meet for an informal intuitive moon ceremony and every last Sunday morning of the month we meet for an art and healing circle. You don’t have to be familiar with ceremonies or art. We start out very basic and organically create an experience that fits perfectly for the group’s want and needs. This is your sisterhood and we will tailor it to suit you.
Our next moon ceremony is on Friday, April 15th at 7:00 pm. As mentioned above, subsequent moon ceremonies will take place every second Friday evening of the month at 7:00 pm. Directions will be emailed to you after registration.
Our next art and healing circle is on Sunday, March 27th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. As mentioned above, subsequent art and healing circles will take place every last Sunday of the month from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Our sisterhood started in February but we are still looking for one more sister to join us.
- All art supplies except a blank art journal
- Snacks and beverages
- Patient and kind art instruction
- A sacred space full of crystals, incense, candles, angels, message cards and essential oils that nurtures your intuition and creativity
- Soulful activities that allow you to connect with your inner wise woman and excavate your inner landscape
Of course what’s included in something like this can’t all be itemized.
Try imagining stepping into a living room with dim lights, a fire flickering, candles lit, your favorite essential oil filling the air and six other women you’ve cried, laughed and experienced miracles with. Women you’ve felt safe enough to share your secrets with. Women who’ve known how to lift you up when you lost your way and help you step in your power when you forgot your magnificence.
This kind of experience isn’t for everyone but it is a god-send if you:
- Prefer small, intimate gatherings
- Are ready to commit to meeting with the same women
- Are interested in ritual, ceremony and art even if you’ve never made time for it before
- Are excited about the closeness and friendship that develops when you meet with the same women every month for a year
- Love the idea of sitting in an art studio one Sunday a month playing with paper, paint and colors in ways that sets your spirit free and shows you to yourself
- Love Brave Girls Club, Kelly Rae Roberts, Susannah Conway and when watching Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, secretly wanted to be a Ya-Ya too
A note about ceremony and my intuitive way of leading circles:
I know the idea of ceremony can seem really out there but my moon ceremonies are very organic, intuitive and not rooted in any one tradition. This means as a group we get to decide what we feel comfortable doing and we get to create an experience that’s perfectly suited just for us. I have a loose structure I follow but we also co-create the experience. Do we like clearing the space with incense or do we prefer to sit in meditation? Do we want to call in the four elements or does that not really mean anything to us? Our intention is to receive spiritual wisdom and insight and we do so in our own creative, intuitive way. That means different things to different people but you can be sure that your way of doing ceremony will shape our circle and our rituals.
You can be new to ceremony and still deeply benefit from this year long experience but this group isn’t a great fit if you are resistant to ceremony. To really enjoy this group, the idea of art, ritual and ceremony have to excite you and make you feel like you may just have found your tribe.
Also, because I channel and tune into each person’s individual needs, I can’t list here what content we will cover every month. However, if you love intuitive ways of healing and trust your heart is being considered thoughtfully as I sit to plan our events, you will love this journey.
If you are one of the brave sisters who join me on this crazy adventure, I will make sure you:
- enjoy a 4 hour soul art workshop every last Sunday of the month
- reconnect with your spirit in a powerful moon ceremony every second Friday of the month
- peel back layers of who you really are
- receive support from me, an Intuitive Therapist, and your fellow soul sisters ALL YEAR LONG
- join my private Facebook Moon Sisters group where we’ll keep each other lifted
- develop your intuition and learn how to hear your inner voice and trust it
- receive your spirit animal for the year
- discover your very own Moon Sister spirit name
And honestly, that really isn’t all of it. There’s just too much to list it all here but I know for sure you will also:
- retreat to the fairy tale forests near Bragg Creek twice a month to rejuvenate your spirit
- enjoy a private celebration feast at the end of the year where your will wear your Crown of Grace and be celebrated by your sisters for the amazing heart you possess and all the leaps forward you courageously made
- be assigned a Moon Sister BFF and special instructions on how to become each other’s spiritual teachers
- learn a super simple approach to solving relationship problems
- understand how your emotions affect your health and what you can do to master your emotions
- learn how to have authentic conversations and live from your heart
Some examples of some of the healing art circles we’ll explore are:
- Journaling to Wake Up Your Creativity
- Doodling Your Dream Messages
- Self-Care Collages
- Paint Your Power
- Color Your Heart Open
- Mandala Magic for Relationships
- Manifesting Miracles with Mixed Media
- Reconnecting with Your Lost Pieces with Paper Mosaic
Are you ready to take the leap and join me for 12 months of brave, soulful living?
If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you join us. We started in February but there is still 11 months of sister magic to enjoy.
Since group dynamics are such an important part of this experience, I do suggest you take your time to really consider whether or not you are ready to make this kind of commitment. I don’t offer refunds on this service but you can opt on anytime in the first three months. The experience can offer you so much but I wouldn’t join lightly. When you register you become part of something beautiful but your magic and your heart will be missed if you leave and your absence will matter. This is a very small group. So take a moment to check in and really see if being part of this group feels right and good for you. If it does, don’t hesitate. There’s magic afoot. I can feel it.
2016 Moon Sisters Fee: $149/month for 11 months
There is only 1 more spot available.
I know commitments can feel scary and you only want to invest in things that are truly worth it. I’m trusting that the six women who join will fit perfectly together even if a little adjustment time is required but if you registered and tried it for three months but you feel like it’s just not a great fit, I will gladly stop your monthly payments and invite someone else to fill your spot.
Also remember you receive so much with that one monthly fee…intuitive ceremonies created for you, soul workshops with the same powerful women all year long, opportunities to explore your creativity and develop your intuition, membership in the private Facebook group, an assigned Moon Sister BFF who will be like your spiritual accountability partner and year long access to me, a skilled and experienced Intuitive Therapist, and unlimited support and guidance from your wise soul sisters to help you move through whatever life, relationship, or parenting challenges or obstacles surface throughout the year.
Still not sure? Call or get in touch. I’m happy to answer any questions before you buy.
