Circle #2: Firing Up the Fall - 6th Annual Fire Ceremony With Lisa Watts Smith
Circle #2: 6th Annual Firing Up The Fall With Lisa Watts Smith - Soul-Food With Shamamamma Each September, I love to start the fall Women's Circle with a soul-food experience celebrating the beauty of our nature and the elements. And each year, I host this special Circle outside in my backyard! We will welcome in the fall and connect with the elements of earth and fire, energy and connection as we begin the journey into the new school year cycle. I have invited the fabulous Lisa Watts Smith, aka Shamamamma back as our guest facilitator and we have a delicious evening in store for the women in the Circle. Come ready to work with the elements of the earth as you connect with the divine energy that resides within you. Lisa will lead us in a rich and beautiful ceremony of deep and soul-full connection and reflection. Tapping into the "wordless/oneness is a beautiful and powerful way to start the fall, burning off what no longer serves as we connect to the vision of the journey within. Bring a small stick with that you are willing to part with, and a sweater and your appetite for life's rich and soul-full experiences. Lisa is the owner of An Affair 2 Remember (, a successful event planning business in Silicon Valley, the co-founder of The Enlightened Mind ( center in San Jose which offers services to enhance self-awareness and spiritual well being and has a private shamanic practice. You can learn more about Lisa and Shamamamma here. ( Suzan and Tania of G2G - the Go To Galz are back again this year to help create another extra special event this year! These Circles are very popular! Register soon to secure your spot.

Needs a location


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.

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.
