We're so thrilled to hold this space and join together in this deeply nourishing, deeply renewing, time of WINTER!

In a way winter is the real spring, the time when the inner things happen, the resurge of nature.

Pregnancy & Infant Loss - SACRED CIRCLE

In alignment with National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day, I invite all women who have the common experience of miscarriage, still birth or infant loss to  sit in sisterhood and honor the journey our bodies, hearts, and souls have taken in the plight to bringing our babies into this world.  This isn't a support group and this isn't therapy.  Just women coming together in sacred space who all have something in common.  Holding such a space for women is a dream come true for me ever since the still birth of my son. 

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15TH, 2017 | 5:00PM - 8:00pm

TIME LINE

5:00pm - WOMEN'S CIRCLE -  Bring a journal and something for the center altar if you'd like. Wear whatever makes you feel good, there's some light movement and we'll be covering our bodies with fresh rose petals - your body and heart deserve it (!) - before settling into a deep relaxation with Gong accompaniment (a sacred instrument for healing).

7:00pm - 8:00pm WAVE OF LIGHT - Upon completion of the circle, we will light a candle in honor of all babies who have been lost too soon.  This will be part of a 24 hour long INTERNATIONAL wave of light.  During this time we will drink wine, eat delicious snacks and enjoy each others company.

SUGGESTED DONATION - $25

The only whole heart is a broken one because it lets the light in.
