Mystic Moon ~ Virtual New Moon Women’s Circle

July 17, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

$30

Join Meghan Dwyer and a circle of women on the Friday eve closest to the dark (or new) moon each month to ask for guidance in connecting to the deeply present wisdom this heavenly body has to bestow us. Discover why so many earth-based societies call her “Grandmother Moon”.

A few thousand years ago, societies lived in complete communion with the cosmos. The moon was worshiped as a manifestation of The Divine Feminine and women gathered together to celebrate this lunar energy residing outside them and within them. However the action-oriented, outwardly-focused nature (aka excess solar energy) of our modern times, has caused many women (and men) to forsake this feminine energy, becoming disconnected from each other and forgetting their inherent connection to the moon and its cycle.

Mystic Moon is a creation in response to that separation. You can expect each month to carry a different theme and flow through a sweet mix of any of the following elements: yoga, meditation, ceremony & ritual along with sharing, singing, dancing, journaling, & creating. (You never know what Grandma has in store!) Whether learning how to work with her cycles, realizing what else she represents, or about symbols and goddesses from ancient times, all will move in the spirit of sisterhood. We will consider the moon’s phases as a map and her energy as a metaphor. By tuning into her waning and waxing nature, we remember that we too are always changing: she can teach us how to flow more easily with the ups & downs of life and live in the mystery of it all. By connecting to her light, we are reminded to “chill out before we burn out”: she can show us how to nurture ourselves, turn inward, listen to our intuition and ultimately, heal ourselves.

Preparations:
–If possible spend some time in nature to gather some of the items below. Remember to ask permission.
–Find a sacred space in your home for the ritual. Ideally one that is spacious enough for a yoga mat and dancing.
–Set up your altar before the ritual. See below. Some items like soil, water, offerings, etc. could be placed in little dishes or other appropriate containers. Seek to create beauty!
–It is not required to have any or all of the items to participate. You could simply bring yourself into the healing ritual space with us.

Bring to your sacred space:

–Journal and pen
–Altar items
An item that represents the moon or yin/feminine energy
An item that represents the energy of Gemini (air sign, writing, duality, communication)

Items that represent the 4 elements. Some examples:
Earth: stone, soil, seeds, leaves, flowers
Water: small bowl of water from body of water closest to your home (or sink is fine!), shell
Fire: candles, ashes from a fire
Air: feather, smudging herb (cedar, sweetgrass, mugwort, sage)
Offering for the nature spirits/elementals. Some examples: honey, sesame seeds, little candies, coins, fruit/berries, cornmeal. Use your intuition!
Piece of beautiful fabric or cloth (I use scarves or bandana types sometimes)
Other pieces of nature near your home, sacred objects that call to you, photos of grandmothers or grandmother figures
–Items for yoga & dance
yoga mat
blankets
pillows or bolsters

eye pillow
bluetooth ear pods (to maximize dance experience)
