- What do you need to forgive yourself for?
- Is it easier for you to forgive yourself or forgive others? Why?
- In your experience, what is the key to being able to forgive when someone never offers an apology?

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE KINSTONE NEW MOON WOMEN’S CIRCLE
Women have been gathering in a healing, sharing sister circle at Kinstone on the New Moon since March 2016 when the first International Women’s Day was launched. We average about 20 women at our circles. Sometimes less, sometimes more. We’ve had as few as 3 and as many as 42 show up! It begins each year with an event in conjunction with International Women’s Day (March 8) and continues each month on the day of the New Moon through November!
All women are invited to this circle, especially women who desire to create supportive relationships with other women, women who are feeling overwhelmed or stressed and are looking for some rejuvenation, and women who are looking for ways to find and express the Sacred in their daily lives.
In circle, we join in a short heart meditation, then we have a time for personal sharing – feelings, questions, truths, stories, poems, and more. In this space we are free to celebrate our individuality as well as our collective strength, fearlessness, nurturing, healing and gifts. We end with a shared meal and informal conversations around the tables. Come as you are. It is free to participate; however, we do share a meal and if you want to eat, we ask a $5 donation for a meal. Join us! Please share these events with other women who may be interested. Thank you!
Kinstone has some amazing sacred spaces and we like to use them as much as possible. We may gather in the large Stone Circle, Three Witnesses circle, Star Gazer Circle, Circle of Mystery or other outdoor sacred place at Kinstone (weather permitting). If weather is uncooperative, we meet in our beautiful classroom space in the Education Center.
All women are invited, especially women who are desiring to create supportive relationships with other women, women who are feeling overwhelmed or stressed and are looking for some rejuvenation, and women who are looking for ways to find and express the Sacred in their daily lives.
Date(s): The evening of each NEW MOON March through November – see the list of upcoming dates below. We do NOT meet in December, January or February unless otherwise posted.
Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Place: Kinstone Circle, S3439 Cole Bluff Lane, Fountain City, Wisconsin 54629, USA. When the timing of sunset and weather permitting, we gather outdoors in one of the special places at Kinstone so please dress appropriately for being outside for an hour or longer. Wear layers and bring a scarf since it is nearly always windy on the ridge. We gather first and end with a shared meal for those who wish to stay. In case of bad weather, we meet inside the Kinstone Education Center.
Cost: FREE to attend, but bring $5 for a simple meal if you are partaking. (Note: this is an increase for 2019!)
MEAL: Simple food (varies each time) is available for any who wish to partake; cost is $5/person. We appreciate an email in advance (send to [email protected] at least 2 days in advance if possible!) to let us know that you plan to eat with us.
IMPORTANT: Come prepared to share! Feel free to share what is on your heart, something you have written or bring a short poem, quote, song, or story that speaks to you – this may be relevant to the theme for the month or could be anything that you find inspirational or that highlights the unique strengths of women. This can be something you have read or something you have written or something you have experienced… it’s open!
ALSO PLEASE BRING A CHAIR AND/OR BLANKET TO SIT ON OUTDOORS. BRING YOUR OWN SUNSCREEN, INSECT REPELLENT, AND DRESS FOR THE WEATHER INCLUDING BRINGING EXTRA LAYERS OF CLOTHING. BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE OR MUG. SOMETIMES WE MAY DO A WATER BLESSING AND IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF EVERYONE BROUGHT THEIR OWN WATER IN A REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE.
NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED, JUST SHOW UP
