The New Moon Hoop is open to all Women who wish to gather within 4 days of the New Moon to pray, meditate, drum and sing. We gather in Native American style, welcoming all beliefs and religions, to join in sacred circle. Bring a drum and rattle if you have them (I do have extras), and bring a light snack to share if you feel called to - but most importantly, know there is a place for you with us. Contact me for directions to the Hoop 301.481.2607 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And I saw for the first time how, despite the isolation of our own lives, we are always connected to our ancestors; our bodies hold the memories of those who came before us, whether it is the features we inherit or a disposition that is etched into our soul."
This is a leaderless group in that we all sit in a circle as one. Each woman adds her own energy, ideas, dreams, prayers and sacred thoughts to make the circle whole. Women are Sacred. During the New Moon, women rededicate themselves to resting and renewing our bodies and spirits beginning with honoring the sacred connection between ourselves and the cycle of Grandmother Moon. The circle is safe and nourishing to each sister in the circle. This is an ancient women's hoop of all nations/people.
Come together with pure intent to supporting the healing Mother Earth and the restoring of balance of male and female energy within. We meet within 4 days of the New Moon - a birthing moon. Bring your drum and rattle and some simple food to share for the food round, or flowers for the circle, or candles/sages circle materials as you are guided to do so.
