As woman, we need a safe space to show up we are.  We need a sisterhood that embraces authenticity and vulnerability.

Circle Sisters aims to create a safe space for all women; to rise, to discover,  to laugh, to cry. A supportive space to find our voices, claim our power and celebrate our self-worth.

Every voice and every story valued, honoured and received fully.

Throughout history woman have gathered in sacred circle, there is a power, a magic that unfolds when woman gather in this way.

Circle creates a space for authenticity that is often lacking in our day to day lives. In circles like this we heal; grow;  transform; rise.  When Women rise we are all elevated.

The magic and synchronicity that unfolds in each circle carries it’s own unique flavour but you can expect something like this:

 

Opening circle and introduction

Inspirational reading or guest speaker

Gentle movement; yoga, or dancing

Meditation or chanting, sometimes with live music

Ritual or creative arts

Sharing

Intro to Spirit Bridge Journey

Saturday November 24th | 12-1pm | $30
with Chauntell Dietrich

What to expect:

– learn about spirit bridge journeys and how to allow yourself to receive messages

– live drumming while you journey

– discover your spirit animal and other messages from the non-ordinary realm

– time, space and support around your journey

What to bring:

– a yoga mat or blanket

– sleep mask (if you have one)

– something to write with

– an open mind

What are spirit bridge journeys?

Receiving guidance from the non-ordinary world. We all have the potential to access the NOR realm. We often experience it through dreams and messages that we may get through the day.

The experience of Spirit Bridge Journeys have been passed down to me from my connection to the Institute of the Shamanic Arts.

They are done by entering a meditative state which is supported by rhythmic drumming or rattling. This helps brainwaves go from beta to theta waves.

Beta waves:
– observed while we are awake
– involved in conscious thought, logical thinking

Theta Waves:
– involved in daydreaming and sleep
– connected to us experiencing and feeling deep and raw emotions.
– deeply relaxed, semi-hypnotic state
– intuition, creativity, and makes us feel more natural

“In the vessel of your body, you yourself are the world tree, deep roots in the Earth and a crown of stars. Your essence bridges dimensions.”
― Elizabeth Eiler, Swift and Brave: Sacred Souls of Animals

The fabric can be opened wide to lie inside or bunched together to sit, stand or support in stretching. Classes vary from active to more relaxed.
