Women’s Circles

Late-Summer-2009-042-150x150

The Women’s Inner Growth Circles are made-up of a small group of women who agree to meet for two hours once a week for ten to twelve weeks. The small size is important, allowing each woman an opportunity to tell her story (“herstory”). We have very clear intentions in these circles. Each participant has the opportunity to ask herself what in her life she wants to look different, and what she is willing to do about it. We delve deep into our own psyches in this very intimate setting. It is an honor to facilitate these circles and be witness to the incredible changes and healings in women’s lives. Since these circles are limited in size, I currently offer 2 – 3 separate circles that meet at different time each week.

New Inner Growth Circles Starting September 2016


Women’s Quest Circles were started in the Fall of 2008 with my dear friend, Shirley. I now facilitate these circles with Ymani Simmons, a respected grandmother and elder in our community. This circle meets twice a month. We bring our years of experience participating, learning, and growing in circles and ceremonies from teachers across the lands.

Shirley and I received the Vision Quest ceremony from our Cherokee elder, Will Rockingbear, several years ago. Through a formal request of a dear friend who was following the guidance of her dreamtime, we were approached in providing this ceremony to women. The Women’s Quest Circle exists in preparation for having the option to participate in our yearly Vision Quest ceremony, held on Ymani’s land at Blue Moon Medicine Lodge. Women may choose to support the ceremony at base camp or to prepare themselves for “going on the mountain” to quest. It’s a wonderful sisterhood of women growing together in community to hold a higher vision for humankind.
