I often create large bonfires to welcome the rise of the full moon. The night I took this picture was one such night. As I learn to flow more gracefully through life’s light and dark times, I honor the fullness of a moon cycle and the pull of her light on our watery bodies.
Women all over the globe and across time honor the moon. They gather together and share their dreams and visions and struggles. Especially on evenings when the moon is said to be dark or new, they connect with each other, with their ancestors, and with the moon which isn’t even visible on these nights. The birth of a new moon cycle happens every month when she’s allowing the stars to take center stage. We can learn much from the moon.
In January 2018, I led my first New Moon Meditation, a gathering for women who are curious about the rise of the Divine Feminine. This is something I feel passionate about even though I still struggle to articulate what this means to me. Our gathering was a Sister Circle connected to the Global Sisterhood and it was truly wonderful. I hosted 18 of these monthly events before welcoming my sweet friend, Robin, as co-host. For another year, we held the space together in person and then online until the summer of 2020.
In the first half of 2020, I became an official Certified Leader for the Global Sisterhood. (I completed the Moon School and Circle Initiation programs – totally recommend!) Then, in the summer of 2020 after the death of a dear friend, I took a little break from this work. This little break is stretching out a bit, but I feel it is the right choice for me and I hope to be back at it soon. I warmly and wholeheartedly suggest the Global Sisterhood site for virtual circles and other offerings for all women.
