About The Event
New Moon Women's Circle and Yoga Nidra - Surrender into Freedom
All ages and life stages welcome (children under 16 to be accompanied by a responsible adult)
An evening of rest, replenishment and ritual.
We come together in circle in honour and celebration of this new moon in Aquarius to surrender into rest and explore our freedom nature. We will honour this time of dark skies and bright stars through ritual and honour each other and ourselves through nourishing practices and sharing.
This month the new moon is in Aquarius, ruler of all that is new and progressive. Aquarius is a time of connection, rebellion and visioning. This is the perfect time for us to gather together in community as women, rebel against the restraints of society and envision a new future for ourselves individually and collectively. This month we break free of the shackles of our minds and fly towards freedom.

New Moon Circles
A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle and during this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to be still and receive, maybe to plant the seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life. The New Moon provides a regular reminder to create sacred space in our lives, space for us to drop out of the mundane and reconnect to the magical.
There is something incredibly powerful about women gathering under the dark moon in their softness, vulnerability and power. To have a space in this world of restraint to show emotion, to speak our truth and our doubts and be held in the full support of our sisters however we show up is completely invaluable and calls us home to ourselves.
Lunar Women’s Circles (Moon Lodges) are an ancient tradition stemming from a time when we shared so much more of life with each other than we do today. We would forage, cook and rear our children together and we made time to celebrate what it meant to be a woman by honouring rites of passage, childbirth, fertility, menopause and the cycles of natures, especially those of the moon.
Women as cyclical beings feel an intrinsic connection to the moon and when the moon is dark and new it is empty, receptive and full of potential, creating the ideal environment for women to gather together in a sacred space to replenish, nourish, support and heal.
Women intuitively know how to heal and nourish each other making this time spent together essential for our wellbeing, allowing for rest, recalibration, reconnection and rewilding.
You are welcome to wear clothes that make you feel comfortable, beautiful, sensual, wild, tribal, whatever you feel is right for you. Anything from pyjamas through to full tribal dress is invited and welcome.
If you want to get creative, decorative, elaborate you are very welcome but the most important thing is that you are comfortable and feel good.
Moon circles are family friendly and open to women of all ages and circumstances.
In times passed we would have shared so much more of life with each other than we do now and this would have included the raising of children. Our children would have been welcomed into the lodge and raised communally, garnering the invaluable knowledge and wisdom of the ebb and flow of all things. This inclusive and open environment is crucially important to the rewilding of life and as such these moon lodge gatherings are open to women of all ages and circumstances.
Whether bleeding or not, with or without a womb, pregnant, with small ones in tow, breastfeeding, peri-menopausal, menopausal or in the wisdom years. We all have our own unique wisdom to bring and stories to tell. This passing down of wisdom through the generations is an ancient practice without which we suffer. The reinstatement of the moon lodge provides a valuable space of healing, learning, nurturing, retreat and replenishment, a space that is more crucially essential to our wellbeing than ever before.
Children are welcome to play, read, draw, colour in or participate in the circle as you feel right. I just ask that you are happy to be fully responsible for them and keep them safe. Please do get in touch if you have any questions.
Moon circles are women only.
Many, many women have suffered abuse in some way whether mental, physical or sexual and for these women it is crucially important to have a safe space to explore regaining trust in their bodies, minds, emotions and others. It is for this reason that these gatherings are women only but this does not mean that we are man haters or anything of the kind! We are just coming together in the safety and security of our sisterhood to relearn how to trust and love so that we might better trust and love in our intimate relationships, families and friendships.
