Wise Women's Council * March 2019

  • TheSpaceVta 1779 East Main Street Ventura, CA 93001 USA (map)

In this Wise Women's circle we connect with each other to open up a space of possibility and new beginnings to honor the Wise Woman within and declare our commitment to the transformation of the planet. We come together in these challenging times as a strong community, ready to tackle new growth spurts and build a solid anchor of wisdom and maturity, a healing vortex where seeds of love, compassion and collaboration are planted.

Inspired by Native American elders’ councils, these circles are designed for women who are seeking to reinvent their lives and are looking for physical, emotional and spiritual support to take a leap of faith towards new beginnings

This March gathering, so close to the Spring Equinox, encourages to ponder on the meaning of the rebirth of life. Is it possible to reinvent our lives as Wise Women? What does it take? What feelings a relaunch of this sort elicit in us? How do we manage our fear of the unknown? As we share our secrets vulnerably in a safe environment, we receive the support that we need to stand in our power and magnificence.

Please join us for a spirited, supportive council.

Pre-registration $20, $25 at the door
