Returning to Essence: Fall 2019 – Winter 2020
– 2nd Sunday of each month: Oct 13, Nov 10, Dec 8, Jan 12, Feb 9
“the feminine is difficult to talk about because so few people have experienced it. The feminine is presence, and relatedness, and a heart that can open so that when you meet another person you actually are seeing that person’s authentic self. What meaning does human life have if nobody has ever seen you?” ~ Marion Woodman, interview 2017
A dedicated and juicy group of women comprise this ongoing, private circle. They initially bonded in 2017 — meeting over the course of four consecutive Sundays in Preparing to Awaken. From 2017-2018, they gathered monthly as the original Cultivating Wisdom Circle. More recently, in October 2018, the members officially closed the circle to new applicants and renamed it for themselves. Our voting process narrowed it down to a handful of possibilities ranging from secret-insider-jokes (e.g., Shovels & Coffee at the Ranch, Checkmate Sisters) to sassy suggestions (e.g., Circle of Grit & Gratitude, Juicy Fruit) to heartfelt titles (e.g., Sanctuary Circle, Harvesting Harmony, Refuge Circle). Finally, all agreed upon ‘Returning to Essence’ because it reflects their true intention for the circle itself.
Timing: Typically the 2nd Sunday per month. (In case of holiday: Rescheduled to the 2nd Saturday.)
Format: Returning to Essence meets monthly within repeating 5-month blocks. Two sessions are offered annually: 1) the Spring-Summer session meets monthly in April through August and 2) the Fall-Winter session meets monthly in October through February. We skip March and September.
Eligibility: The circle is private. It is closed to new members.
Upcoming Dates: *In case of holidays, Sundays are typically rescheduled to Saturdays on the same weekend. Indicated by asterisks.
