What we're about

Groups run by and for women are our psychic turf; our place to discover who we are, or who we could become as whole independent human beings.

Somewhere in our lives, each of us needs a place,

A little psychic territory.

Do you have yours?

-Gloria Steinem

When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
Jean Shinoda Bolen

Fresh Intuition Women's Circles is a monthly women's gathering to explore women's spirituality, spiritual awakening, women's leadership and empowerment, consciousness studies, energy and intuition with a fresh twist. I am committed to building communities of conscious, empowered and connected women who bring their heart and "soles" to the Circles.

This Meetup is hosted at my home with spaces for 16+ women per Circle.There is a different topic or speaker each month. I have a generous appetizer spread at each Circle, refreshments and raffle prizes which are all part of the monthly membership dues. You must RSVP for a spot each month as membership in the Meetup does not automatically reserve you a spot in the Circle.

Due to the tremendous growth and interest in 2013, there are now two Circles each month with the same topics and speakers. Please note that each of the Circles will be designated on the event Meetups as Circle #1 - The Second Tuesday of the Month, Circle #2 - The Third Tuesday of the Month. Many women have a home group and this adds to the experience of creating community and connection.

I invite you to a space where the Circle can support and nurture the awakening spirit of living consciously, deliberately, and intentionally a full mind, body and spirit-filled life. I create experiences every month that feel like soul food and invite you to create the space in the circle of your own life to nurture this, feed this, and exercise this spiritual muscle.

Fall Equinox Sacred Circle and Despacho Ceremony with Lisa Watts Smith

The Fresh Intuition Women's circle welcomes back Lisa Watts Smith, our Shammamma, to guide us on a sacred journey to explore, through ceremony, the sacredness of the fall! Women's circle member and facilitator Catherine Houdek and myself look forward to our collaboration with Lisa again this year.

Every fall, for the last 10 years, the circle celebrates the importance of ritual, sacred kairos time together.

This year, we will focus on the elements, the connection between the individual and the collective and the power of ritual to clear away the clutter and invite in the harvest of the fall season.

The fee for this circle is $35. If the fee is a hardship, please message me as scholarships are always available.

The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants the day before the circle.

We look forward to sharing this beautiful experiential circle -- journey on.

October Evening Circle - Cultivating Joy: The Place We Go When We Feel Good!

October Evening Circle - Cultivating Joy: The Place We Go When We Feel Good!

Does joy feel like a random occurrence – sort of like a lightning strike that you are waiting for it to happen, with little-to-no control on when or where it might strike? Or does joy feel like it is pending or contingent, waiting for some "To Do" to get out of the way so the really good stuff in life can happen?

Inspired by Brené Brown’s latest book Atlas of the Heart, we are interested in both how to better prepare ourselves for when joy shows up so we can take full advantage it, AND in how to cultivate more joy in our lives.

We are curious about the difference between conditional joy vs unbridled or unconditional joy. How about you, would you like to dance with joy more often?

Join us for our annual EQ October exploration in this 2-hour interactive Zoom experience in an intimate, supportive and explorative environment with Catherine and Mary.
