It’s time we get together and start Women’s Circle’s to remember our power and support one another. Heal the woman and heal the world!
Here is a formula I found to lead one! You can add or take away to this formula to tune in with the seasons & reasons of the gathering.
Circle up—we stand in a circle, place our hands on eachother’s backs and hum together three times to raise the energy of the circle.
Invocation to directions of Gaia
We honor the East. Home of air. Morning’s song. Eagle’s flight. Welcome East. We honor the South. Home of fire. Noon sun. Flame of change. Heat of passion. Welcome South. We honor the West.Home of water.River’s flow. Font of feelings. World’s womb. Welcome West. We honor the North. Home of Earth. Root of life. Shaded mystery. Ground of being. Gaia’s growth. Welcome North.
Light candle/opening quote
“I see the wise woman. And she sees me. She smiles
from shrines in thousands of places. She is buried
in the ground of every country. She flows in every
river and pulses in the oceans. The wise woman’s
robe flows down your back, centering you in the
ever-changing, ever-spiraling mystery.
Everywhere I look, the wise woman looks back.
And she smiles.”
–Susun Weed quoted in Birthing Ourselves Into Being
Check-in–we take turns “passing the rattle” and each woman has about two minutes to share what’s been on her mind.
A Prayer of Healing
We join with the earth and with each other.To celebrate the seas.To rejoice the sunlight.To sing the song of the stars.We join with the earth and with each other.To recall our destiny.To renew our spirits.To reinvigorate our bodies.We join with the earth and with each other.To create the human community.To promote justice and peace.To remember our children.We join together as many and diverse expressions of one loving mystery: for the healing of the earth and the renewal of all life. We join with the earth and with each other. To bring new life to the land.To restore the waters.To refresh the air.We join with the earth and with each other.To renew the forests.To care for the plants. To protect the creatures.
Lead a Guided visualization/meditation/relaxation
Muse questions & Journaling
Your Muse would like to show you something you haven’t been able to see.
She wants to invite you to have a thought you haven’t had yet…isn’t that an enticing thought in and of itself?
A thought that has lingered on the edge of your consciousness for maybe even a few years, or months….tell her…
I want to know what it is I am not seeing.
Then automatic write whatever comes up.
Discuss responses/experiences to relaxation/journaling.
Listen to songs, sing, drum or chant
Closing circle: Sing Long Time Sun Song
Closing quote and extinguish candle
“A circle! No sharp edges, no hierarchy, just a circle of women…We are mothers. We are the portals. The next generation comes through our bodies.” –Annie Lennox
“I believe that these circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we’re weak and sing with us when we’re strong.” –SARK, Succulent Wild Woman
