FULL MOON WOMEN’S CIRCLE
Please join us for a night of sisterhood, movement, love, and release. And did we mention an amazing gong bath?
A full moon women’s circle is a safe and sacred space for women to come together, use their voices, be heard and be seen. Women throughout history have gathered in circles to empower each other and share wisdom. These affirming community gatherings help women get in touch with their feminine strength and turn up their positive vibration.
