Do you feel ready to explore the next phase of your journey? Are you longing to connect more deeply with your feminine self and others who identify as women? Do you feel drawn to explorations of consciousness, your femininity, community, healing, and spirituality? Are you recovering from trauma and looking for support in a safe and inclusive place? 

<br>

Drawing from the feminist traditions of Clarissa Pinkola Estes' "Women Who Run With the Wolves," Maureen Murdock's "The Heroine's Journey," and the study of the divine feminine/ goddess literature as archetypes for healing and personal transformation, this group provides a structured exploration of intersectional, multicultural, trans-inclusive womanhood. Every woman and individual who identifies as woman (we are emphatically trans-inclusive) has been wounded by the patriarchal system that denies our inherent feminine self, denigrates us, objectifies us, and dehumanizes us. Some of us are also recovering from spiritual, psychological, and/or physical abuse from parents, family, and/or partners. We use texts from prehistory through modern day as inspiration to guide us in our healing. 

This is not a metaphysical or religious group or a clinical therapy setting. We are an informal but structured circle that emphasizes personal safety, individual accountability, the courage of vulnerability, and the importance of empathy from a feminine perspective. We holistically draw from academic research and evidence in the study of mental health and well-being to inform our healing and find inspiration for our journey in the stories of goddess literature as well as global and historical folklore. 

A typical meeting consists of: 

- brief introductions

 - an overview of the topic or theme of the day (such as becoming comfortable with your dark side, nurturing your sensuality, embracing your physical body, becoming more assertive, healing from toxic relationships, or rejecting internalized negative messaging) 

- a brief grounding guided meditation - an overview of the text of the day (whether ancient mythology or an excerpt from a workbook on emotional healing)

 - moderated group discussion

 - a creative exercise and journaling/ dream work 

- close with a relaxing guided meditation designed to facilitate healing outside of the meeting 

<br>

In other words, we'll make new friends, share our stories of healing, support each other, provide and exchange empathy, nurture our creativity, and learn something new about our humanity that draws from collective wisdom.
