sacred story and ritual 

This is a group of about a dozen women who are willing to make a commitment to journey together from October 2020 to June 2021. Some women will journey on from this past year, but here is room for a few others to join. 

Please express your interest by 15th October

This commitment, to journey together, will enable us to build relationships of trust, creating a safe space in which we can discover our deeper spiritual selves. 

Our monthly evenings will be varied and fluid, sharing stories and activities that engage our whole selves. We plan on smiling, enjoying each other’s company, tapping in to a playful spirit, being gentle with ourselves, breathing deeply. We hope you will leave this sacred space feeling nurtured and empowered, ready to step back into your personal life, and the places you engage society and our world with renewed confidence and energy.
