A Space for Women being called to attune to the Divine Feminine
We gather in a women’s circle to Remember. Remember a time when we lived in community. Remember what is it to nurture, awaken and restore our feminine spirit within. Remember to nourish ourselves through ceremony & ritual. Remember the wisdom and the mystery of the Moon in all her phases. Remember the power of myth of the Celtic Goddesses.
What is a Women’s Circle
The gatherings are an opportunity to reclaim your power and innate wisdom – to listen, to share, to nourish yourself through ceremony & ritual, to re-awaken the Celtic wisdom within you.
We explore the cycles that influence our life as women – the menstrual, lunar, earth and life cycles. We explore the women’s mysteries – our rites of passage of menarche, childbirth, menopause and death – their impact and how we can honor these thresholds whether it is presently, retrospectively or preemptively. We do this through myth, rites, ceremony and holding a sacred space to talk and listen through real presence.
A women’s circle provides a deep well that feeds and sustains our life force energy as women – a well of vitality and inspiration from which we can draw creativity, vision, soul practice well after the evening has come to a close.
Would you like to connect to yourself and to your inner wise woman ?
Do you feel the call for authentic connection, deep conversations, real presence and a supportive community who walk alongside you on your journey in a safe and supportive women’s circle?
Do you feel a longing to experience the rites of passage that weren’t offered to you?
Do you wish to re-experience your crossing of energetic and physical thresholds in your life?
Are you curious about the significance of the moon, ceremony and ritual as we follow the natural rhythms of being a women?
Would you like to explore, celebrate and cultivate the different aspects of being a woman?
Are you in need of some ‘you time’ or need time out from the busyness of life?

Upcoming Women’s Circles
April, Fri 26th 6.30 - 8.30pm 'The Morrigan’s Burlá Ghuí'
Join Roseleen on the Last Quarter Moon to honor the cycles of life – Birth, Death & Rebirth and connect with the powerful energy of The Morrigan (Goddess Morrigan is often seen as one of the triple Goddesses in Celtic mythology. She represents the circle of life and was associated with both birth and death)
Every day we experience ‘mini deaths’ – opportunities lost, ending of patterns & habits, friendships & relationships ending, leaving jobs, changing countries – we sometimes forget to honor the endings, the losses, the letting go, the release and see the power in it.
We learn that within ever ending is a rebirth, a new beginning that we can fully open to when we honor the endings. We also learn to celebrate all of life, the circle of life by honoring all that life is giving and bringing to us.
With this months theme we recognise we are a natural part of the ever cyclical pattern of birth, death and rebirth.
During this evening we will create a collective prayer bundle/burla ghui/ despacho with various elements from nature, representing our idea of birth, death and rebirth.
A Burlá Ghuí (pronounced bur-la gwee) is the Gaelic for a prayer bundle and prayers are made in the form of Nature items to represent whatever the intention is for and we will arrange them on paper in a pattern that comes from the heart and to see how it evolves as everyone adds in their pieces spontaneously.
You will have the opportunity to honor your cycle of Birth, Death & Rebirth that is personal to you at this time whether known or unknown. For example the birth of baby / project / book / self care / self care / garden / relationship / new habits etc and the death of a project / a career / a phase of life / your teenage years / childbearing years / a relationship / a pattern / a way of viewing yourself etc and the rebirth of your soul / adult life / inner love / self care / a deeper relationship with yourself / a new way of being etc using items of Nature chosen by you.
Let us join together in circle and open ourselves to living a life that is spiral in nature so we can move with more grace and ease through transitions & life.
May, TBC 21st 7.30-9.30pm 'Sovereign Rites of Eriú'
More Information Coming Soon
What if we celebrated ourselves in all of our phases the way we do the moon?
Through my own journey I have experienced a power and unfolding in women’s circle and I wish to share that with other women.
These evenings were born out of a desire to create a space for community and connection as well as honoring our feminine spirit which I feel so many women long for.
It is an opportunity to enter a space where we can leave the masks, roles and stories at the door and come into a safe, supported and experiential environment, where non-judgement and compassion for the self is practiced. It’s a place where we get to be and somehow in that being weave a new sense of aliveness within ourselves.
It’s a space to feel held, heard by others but more importantly by ourselves.
If there is a part of you that is drawn to these women’s circles but is daunted by the idea of a women’s circle / divine feminine / lunar cycles or you have preconceived ideas of what it entails, please listen to that little voice within that is yearning for re-connection with your fellow women. Contact me and I will explain the evening to you so you can feel at peace with arriving and settling into the space being created.
My suggestion is – come and dip your toe into the magic of circle and then decide if it resonates with your heart and soul.
What Happens in a Women’s Circle
Each month we come together to celebrate a different aspect of being a woman.
We open & hold a safe & confidential space including a cleanse to release any stresses & strains of the day, week or month so all sit for the time together. Following the introduction of the evenings theme, a ‘Talking Space’ is opened to voice our truth & express ourselves freely.
There is also an experiential aspect to the evening with the practise or Rite or demonstration of our theme.
To close the evening we have a sacred Fire Ceremony to release anything that no longer serves us & welcome in whatever does.
The flow of the evening will depend on the theme of that month.
It is important to know that we hold all aspects of the feminine within us i.e we don’t have to be a child to connect to our inner child, we don’t have to be a ‘crone’ to receive the crone rites etc. We hold all these ‘energetically’ and they can help us to bring healing to our lineage where these aspects of life were not acknowledged or celebrated. They can also help us prepare for these energies when we do meet them physically.
The Power of a Women’s Circle
We are each at different places in our life journey, when we choose to share our stories and travel together, the companionship we offer each other is invaluable. We can learn so much from each other because we each bring our own unique experiences and energy to the group.
Let us be inspired by each others experiences. By giving way and space to our hopes, fears, laughter, dreams and tears we can strip away the anxiety, judgement, stress that we are carrying so we have space to breath, to grow and to cultivate a deep kindness towards ourselves and thereby our family, the men in our lives and world around us.
