Moon Circles
for Women

moon cycles.jpg

Join the next Moon Circle on December 6th at the Downtown Artery. 

In this circle, we will be taking part in a Sacred Give Away Ceremony. This ceremony will entail each person bringing a beloved possession to be given away. The giveaway is a practice of releasing something that is ready to be let go, a lesson of generosity, and detachment of material items.

The give away item should be an item that has deep meaning and carries a story. Monetary value of the gift does not matter. If you don't want to give it away and know you should, that is likely the item you should give away!

Please bring your gift in a paper or cloth bag. An altar of gifts will be created where each women will use their heart's guidance and intuition to be guided to the “perfect for you” gift.

Each person (the giver and the receiver) describes what that gift means. The receiver shares why they were drawn to the item and the giver explains why she was moved to gift the item.  The receiver then becomes the steward of the item and its story.

 Circles are usually $25 per person. However, this circle will be FREE as we will not be creating a ritual art project and as a gift from me to you for sharing your love & wisdom in our circles.

About Wild Roots Moon Circles...

Our Moon Circles are held each month on or near the New Moon.  New Moons are a great time to gather in ritual to set goals & intentions for what you wish to grow more of in your life. 

Anyone who identifies as a women is welcome. Women from age 16 to 120 years of age are invited to attend. We find that having a variety of ages is a lovely experience for all as it gives us an opportunity to share our wisdom from years' past, discover who we are now and explore who we may become.

These New Moon Circles are part of the Wild Women Project, a international network of circles that gather around the ideas of  Sisterhood (having each others backs, empowering one another), a respect for the earth (wildness, turning to nature as a teacher) & co-creation (the understanding that just as we co-create our experience in circle, so do we co-create life on earth). We also tend to be a heart-centered bunch, lots of laughter & tears. Learn more about The Wild Woman Project HERE

It is our intention to use these circles as time to allow for the demands of the outside world to be put on pause and take an opportunity to assess our personal needs and fill our cups with the medicine of sisterhood and making art with intention. Each month we will explore a theme through intentional art projects, guided meditations, ritual, journaling, movement (yoga & dance), sharing and more. 

These circles are not associated with a singular path or religion, but rather, an inclusive coming together with women from all paths. We all come from different spiritual/cultural backgrounds. The circle offers a place of support, kindness and always, your free choice as to when you will participate and when you will observe. We sit together and welcome one another just as we are. 

In each of our circles we use the ritual of creating art & crafts to express our inner guidance, intentions and soul. No previous art experience necessary. All materails are provided. 

New Moon Circles are guided by Alie Rich, Experienced Nature Art Guide, Wild Woman Project Facilitator and Founder of Wild Roots Studio.

Recommended items to bring to circle?

Journal & Pen
You may wish to bring a journal and pen/pencil. You won't be asked to take notes but, I find I get inspired in circles and love to take notes of my thoughts, inspiration and creativity when it arises. 

Item for the Circle Center
I will be creating an alter in the circle center to celebrate our collective energy. I find it is nice for each person to bring a small item to add to the alter. This maybe a stone, feather, jewelry, leaf, seed...something that represents your unique spirit.

Cozy Stuff
Anything that makes you feel comfortable. This maybe a cushion, blanket, shawl, slippers, snacks, etc. 

Inspiration
Feel free to come with poems, stories, visuals or anything that you might want to share with the group or use as inspiration in creating your intentional artwork. 

What to bring that is unique to this circle?

Bring an item to gift for our Sacred Give Away Ceremony. The item should have deep meaning or a cherished story.
