Calling all women to join in a circle to celebrate ourselves on a regular basis in sync with the new moon. It begins each year with an event in conjunction with International Women’s Day (March 8, 2017) and continues each month on the day of the new moon through November!
We will join together in the large Stone Circle, Three Witnesses circle, Circle of Mystery or other outdoor sacred place at Kinstone (weather permitting) to share a short meditation, shared feelings, stories and poems. In this space we are free to celebrate our collective strength, fearlessness, nurturing, healing and gifts. Together. Women have an amazing ability to heal the world, give birth to new life and new ideas; we add our special forces to great effect in our achievements in social, economic, cultural and political arenas. We are strong and together in a community, a circle, we shine brighter. Join us!
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: We begin each year with a celebration of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY on March 8. Then, we meet on the evening of each NEW MOON through November – see the list of dates at the bottom of the page and the specific theme which is posted next to the date as the themes are announced. We do not meet in December, January or February unless otherwise posted.
Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Theme: See the theme posted beside the date below; it is posted as soon as it is known.
Place: Kinstone Circle, S3439 Cole Bluff Lane, Fountain City, Wisconsin, USA. When the timing of sunset and weather permitting, we gather outdoors in one of the special places at Kinstone (i.e. the center of The Three Witnesses, the large Stone Circle, the Dolmen, the Circle of Mystery, the Labyrinth, the Chapel, or other); 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 will meet inside the Kinstone Education Center.
IMPORTANT: Please bring a short poem, quote, or story to share relevant to the theme for the month or anything that you find inspirational or that highlights the unique strengths of women.
ALSO PLEASE BRING A CHAIR AND/OR BLANKET TO SIT ON OUTDOORS. BRING YOUR OWN SUNSCREEN, INSECT REPELLENT, AND EXTRA LAYERS OF CLOTHING. BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE OR MUG. WE MAY DO A WATER BLESSING AND IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF EVERYONE BROUGHT THEIR OWN WATER.
Cost: FREE to attend, but bring $3 for a simple meal if you are partaking.
MEAL: Simple food (varies each time) is available for any who wish to partake; cost is $3/person. We appreciate a call or email to let us know if you plan to eat with us.
All women are welcome. Please come and invite a sister, a mother, or a friend!
