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.

Circle #2: Winter Dreaming - What Seeds of Intention are You Growing for 2019?

Circle #2: Winter Dreaming - What Seeds of Intention are You Growing for 2019? The Fresh Intuition Women's Circle welcomes back psychotherapist and dream specialist Linda Mastrangelo, MA, LMFT as our January guest facilitator! The Winter season is upon us and it is a sacred time of deep, inner reflection, connecting with the ancestors and letting go of old wounds that no longer serve us in order to prepare for the New Year to come. Many traditions, festivals, and rituals were created to mark the beginning of the sun’s return as well as honoring those potent night visions that bring guidance for the coming year. A powerful way to ritualize winter dreaming is through the ancient practice of dream incubation. When we reflect on our dreams, then we can be more in tune with the wisdom of these ways. We can then ‘hatch our wishes’ to bring forward the fruits of our labors. In this circle we will: - Explore the ancient practice of dream incubation. -Learn ways to manifest these “tiny seeds of intentions” of what we wish to bring forth for the coming year. -Share and explore actual dreams with Q & A for specific dream questions No experience necessary. Please bring a dream you wish to work with in the circle. A bit about our guest facilitator: Linda H. Mastrangelo, LMFT is an educator, artist and psychotherapist with a private practice in the San Francisco Bay area specializing in bereavement and dreamwork. Being a prolific dreamer since childhood, she discovered the remarkable potential of dreams as “good medicine.” Over time, Linda has developed techniques that have empowered people to make more mindful changes in their lives and communities. She has also presented her work internationally and has written for numerous publications including Good Therapy, Lucid Dreaming Exchange, DreamTime and as a contributor for the highly anticipated books, Sleep Monsters and Superheroes and Dreams that Change Our Lives. Linda also serves on the Board of Directors, is the Continuing Education Administrator and Editor of Dream News for the International Association for the Study of Dreams and is an Adjunct Professor at John F.
