Gather the Women
Meets Monthly ~ 2nd and 4th Thursdays, 7 - 9 pm
Women from varied backgrounds and places are experiencing the call to reclaim their feminine nature, to slow themselves and listen, to awaken to their authentic selves and move in the world from their unique inspired and purposeful place of knowing.
Gather the Women is a sacred circle for women of all ages to gather and honor themselves. In our busy lives, it's often challenging to find time to be present with ourselves. Gifting yourself with this time and space allows you to come into balance with yourself and to be witnessed in your authenticity by a supportive circle of women.
Participants are invited to bring something to place on the altar. Circle meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 7-9 pm. Space is limited; please Contact Anne (or 665-8316) to reserve your place in circle. $10 donation per meeting. All are welcome.
Power in You Women's Circle
5 Week Series - Begins Tuesday, June 9th
You hold an innate power; it roots you in the knowing of who you are, of what you’re here for, of what calls to you. This 6-week Women’s Series was born from a desire to provide women with sacred space for dialogue and reflection that calls them to this knowing place.
Gathering and rooting your inner wisdom is a process. The Power in You Series is intended for those who desire gentle reminders of how to access this innate inner strength. Through practice and exploration, you will be encouraged to bloom fully into your authentic self, grasp the reins of your unique medicine and bring your gifts to our world.
This new series of women's circles combines teachings, discussion and reflection. The series will meet Tuesday evenings from 7 - 9 pm beginning June 9.
This is a unique opportunity to gift yourself with sacred community and connection with your beautiful, wise self. Space is limited.
Cost: $110 ($95 if paid by May 22). Registration and payment in advance is required. Contact Anne (or 665-8316) with your interest.
Medicine Doll Workshop
Sunday, May 31, 10 am - 4 pm

Nourish Your Spirit
Begins Sept. 2015
Come, circle ye women, young and old,
Songs unsung and stories untold.
Circle ye women, life’s fullness is here;
Be witnessed among us, your laughter and tear.
Circle ye women, healing you’ll reap,
Magic’s at hand, compassion is deep.
Share your heart in this powerful space;
See your reflection in many a face.
Sit with us women, come be a part;
Come circle among us and nurture your heart. ~ A. Heck
Our spirit and emotions are an integral part of our overall health and balance. Often a shift in perspective or beliefs, a softening of anger, guilt or regret, a newfound trust or curiosity in the gifts of the unknown will create an opening for more flow, balance, ease, peace, vitality and strength in our lives.
The Spiritual Healing Circle is for you if you’d like to make a regular practice of connecting with your authentic needs and desires within the safety and with support of a reflective community. This gathering is for those who are curious to take a look inward. If you're seeking more meaning of spiritual connection in your life, come sit in circle with women committed to exploring, discovering and nurturing their unique spirit path. Weekly for 7 weeks.
Cost: $170. Registration and payment in advance is required. Contact Anne (or 665-8316) with your interest.
Journey to the Heart Women's Circle

Journey to the Heart is an intimate gathering for those committed to connecting to their heart space. This is for you if you'd like to make a regular practice of connecting with your authentic needs and desires within the safety and with support of a reflective Circle of intentional women.

- experience greater balance in your spiritual and physical life.

Inner growth and awareness happen when we create the right environment for it: time, safe space, and loving guidance. I ask for your commitment to be fully present for yourself and others when you come into community; the amount of attention and intention that you devote to Circle will determine what you gain from it.

Spiritual Dowsing is one of the most powerful and simple practices I know; I utilize its teachings daily and am excited to share it with you. This workshop will introduce you to life-changing teachings that enhance present moment awareness and create balance in your life.
Dowsing or divining is the art of tapping into your innate ability to explore the world of subtle energies that are everywhere within and around you, subsequently drawing you ever closer to the Divine.
"Thank you so much for introducing me to spiritual dowsing. This is the missing link . . . you are the answer to my prayer."
In this afternoon workshop, you’ll learn the basics of dowsing and how to detect beneficial and detrimental energies in your living and work environments. You'll learn to work directly with Nature and with the Divine to take charge of your life. Most importantly, you'll learn to use a blessing process to:
- change detrimental energies that weaken you and can make you sick, into beneficial energies that strengthen you, heal you, and enhance your moods and relationships
- attract new beneficial energies into your living environment
- eliminate the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF's) that radiate from TVs, computer screens, microwave ovens, electrical wires, cellular phones, etc. You can actually make these energies beneficial to you and your loved ones with the Blessing Process.
- attract what you most need and want into your life, drawing you ever closer to your highest potential as a spiritual being of Light.
Cost: $95. 12:30 pm - 5 pm. Registration and payment in advance required. Limited to 10 participants. Contact Anne (or 665-8316) with your interest.
