Women’s Moon Circle

Women'sMoonCircles2019Let the light in…on the new and full moon.
The dark of the new moon provides a powerful time to go inward, take stock, identify what’s no longer needed, and plant the seeds of your intentions. In contrast, the light of the full moon is a time to take energy outward, express creativity, amplify desired emotions, and harness heightened intuition and power.
In the circle, we’ll meet near or on the new and full moon to learn healing practices, the effects of the moon on our lives, and how to fortify and nourish our bodies, minds, and spirits.
  • Are you looking to connect more deeply to yourself and to like-minded people?
  • To learn how to work with the cycles of the moon?
  • To learn the different energies of the new and full moon—and how to tailor your inner work to their unique energies for powerful results?
  • To set intentions on a regular basis with the support of a community?
  • To learn practices to shed what is no longer necessary and become the most potent version of yourself?
  • To feel more empowered, supported, and inspired in your self-care?

You are invited to the Women’s Moon Circle, a gathering for woman-identified people. We will meet near or on the new and full moon each month from October through December 2019 (specific dates and times below). Once the group starts, it will be closed.

Activities will include journaling, grounding meditation, ritual, breathwork, art making, learning about the astrological significance of each month’s new moon, and more. You’ll also receive a newsletter each month with a ritual you can do at home, plus further information and resources. Each session will also include: Homemade hot herbal tea served and A 10% off coupon for Scarlet Sage (for use on the date of the circle). The Women’s Moon Circle is hosted by Rachel Farinelli Vita and Chiara Viscomi.

All classes are held at Scarlet Sage School of Traditional Healing Arts.
