What does it mean to enter sacred circle?
To me, it is a feeling of coming home. Coming home to ourselves, coming home to one another in community and equality, and coming home to great Mother Earth. The circle itself is a symbol of wholeness, oneness, the whole of the Universe. No one is greater than another in circle, we are all equal, there is no hierarchy and we can feel so welcome to come exactly as we are. Circle is a place of acceptance, of love, of surrender…there is no judgement here. In circle we are all seen, heard, witnessed and honoured. We re gifted a PAUSE and the space to commune with our souls, we can feel with our hearts and we can remember who we are.
Who should enter sacred circle?
The circle will hold space for all who step forward. Only you will know when the time is right, and that first time can feel scary. The unknown…what if this…what if that? It’s really a bit of a contradiction because in circle we are asked to let go and trust….BUT we are stepping fully into unchartered territory, so know if you feel scared it’s ok, it’s all part of the process and you are always in safe hands. I have been holding sacred circles for 4 years now and I am always learning, always expanding the offering and always creating the safest most loving place for you to be you.
What can we expect?
we can expect nothing…or we can expect everything! The best way to enter is with no expectation…but be prepared. You can in the simplest way be held, you can be cocooned and loved. You can awaken…you can transform…you can heal….you can shed….you might cry…you might laugh….all possibility awaits in circle and for me that is part of the excitement because in truth ANYTHING can happen! We put our trust in ourselves and in the circle to hold us.
“I loved being part of the warrior women circle! It was Massively empowering and cathartic. Thank you for all that you put into the session and the cake! I felt like I shook off some blocked emotions and the lovely meditations and circle support gave me the opportunity to do this.
My story feels very raw still and I think the next few months will test me but I shall definitely return to your lovely circle!
Thanks again, have a lovely day” xx (Helen)
My first woman’s circle I didn’t know what to expect or how open I’d be but it was perfect. A beautifully held space full Of love compassion power left me with a grounding glow… we spoke our truth, we were heard. What a powerful circle with a lasting effect. (Holly)
The circle was wonderful and I am so pleased I was able to be part of such a beautiful, powerful and liberating time spent together. Thank you for creating these magical spaces that allows us to surrender, open up and feel held. I look forward to the next, and wish you a happy weekend. Lots of love and light Grace xxxWell THANKYOU!Friday night was quite something…… where do I start…..So I booked the evening initially thinking it was a monster yoga session with oodles of meditation, which I though would be cool as I haven’t really done much in the meditation department. My lovely Danny (hubby) then read something online and read out what the evening was actually going to consist of, shock, fear and almost horror then spread over me of the unknown…. but nothing ventured, nothing gained, so I turned up with a very open mind and ready for a new experience. Which I could have never preempted.The atmosphere was beautiful, comfortable, and certainly felt very safe.The experience was humbling, calming and insightful to myself through others.As you said in the circle, many experiences and feelings are like a mirror and reflect back.It was very real.I am still today reflecting on the evening, it has created many questions on various levels, all strangely positive and freeing I (don’t think that’s a real word, but works for what I need to say). It was lovely to be able to admit that life is good and to actually except it, something that we don’t always acknowledge, opposed to when things are more difficult. There are always mountains to climb and obstacles to face, with external negative forces wafting through, but to manage them and feel good is quite something. Everything is just a phase and this will change, (maybe tomorrow) but to recognise it and not feel guilty for doing was very liberating.I think the circle reaffirmed that life is a journey and we are all at different stages and ages, the struggles are all the same for each and everyone of us, but at different times and varying levels. Also that as individuals we all feel like oddballs and learning to except ourselves, maybe that is the norm?You certainly made it easy to be there, sharing in your wonderful way, allowing others to follow.There is certainly a strength in sharing.The timings were good, the evening flowed, the excellent home baked cake a lovely human touch.It was a really special few hours that will resonate for weeks, maybe months and more to come. I still have my offering to give back to the great outdoors, and choosing my quiet time to indulge and saviour it.
“I’m honestly a bit speechless, I slept like a log…I literally felt you pulling things down from the heavens for us.”
“I felt entirely held and supported and extremely teary (prob because I needed to be in a room full of women instead of home with the chaos).”
“Thank-you for creating such a safe space for us all to share so openly and freely.”
“You really created such a special space- that energy- My hands felt like magnets at the start, it was incredible.”
“I loved what you said about truth speaking and how it heals us, those around us and mother Gaia herself. Particularly women.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! As always, the circle delivered exactly what I needed. I knew I had to be present with you ALL this evening – despite having weird wobbles an hour previous to the event. It brought calm to my current chaos and a much needed grounding “
