"She who dares to put herself first, who shouts in the face of authority and follows her heart, not their god. She who dares to give voice to what is inside her, who shakes things up and burns them down. She who quakes with rage and rolls with laughter, who moans with pleasure and wants more. She, for whom every piece of life needs to have the marrow of its bones sucked, who dances naked, and eats with her fingers. She who stamps and says No. She who stands in the doorway and will not let them in. She who opens her legs and dives into her juices with delight. She who dares. She who does what they say cannot and must not be done. She who tries and fails. She who does it her way. She who longs to walk topless in the sunshine and dance naked in the moonlight. It is for her, and all of us, who long to be more like her wherever on the path we may be."

ABOUT WOMENS CIRCLE
From ancient times, women around the world have come together and sat in circles, engaged in rituals, used the power of their intention and intuition to guide their lives as well as the lives of their family and community, and together have held the social fabric of culture.
The power of the circle is grounding, holds women in connection to one another, and supports the synchronization of the rhythm of their bodies with each other, with the earth and nature. It also builds a healthy supportive community.

SIGNIFICANCE OF NEW MOON
New Moon Marks the beginning of a new moon cycle - a fresh beginning in its full cycle of waning and waxing. It is the time to let go of the old, and plant new seeds of intentions for what you wish to bring forth in your life in all aspects!
When we share sacred space together, we exponentially magnify the power of our intentions and energetically create a web of support for each other.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Benefits of Being in a Women's Circle: Women participating in the Sisterhood Project experience increased confidence and self-esteem, expanded awareness of themselves and their surroundings, rootedness in their bodies and sexuality, and a deep sense of connection with the Earth, Nature and Life around. Even more importantly, there is a sense of being seen, acknowledged, listened to and understood.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN
Each New Moon Circle will have a theme.
There will be an intentional opening of the circle through an invocation ritual facilitated by the founder of She Stands Tall Project followed by a group engagement through a meditation or guided imagery connected to the theme of the day.
Then we will engage in a simple creative expression modality of intention making using any one of the tools like journaling, visual art, improv, poetry, collaging, etc. We will close with reflection and sharing.
