“There is nothing so wise as a circle” – Rainer Maria Rilke
Begin your journey of self-realisation as we come together as we are, our defences dropped and masks removed in the safest place where you are free to just be and become.
Women’s circles provide a safe place where every women is invited to try out something new, maybe speaking up for the first time, acknowledging feelings or just experiencing the sense of connection and belonging with like-minded women.
The Circle is opened with ancient ceremonial attributes such as honouring our ancestors who have passed on their wisdom so that we can evolve and heal; we will raise a glass of ceremonial Cacao in honour of our time together and to unlock heart-warming states, and allow space for negative emotions to be released while being able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.
You are invited to join us on a journey of self-realisation and empowerment as you begin trying out your wings. Together we will respect and honour one another and feel respected and honoured; hear one another and be heard; and see one another and truly feel seen.
This is a not-for-profit event, all contributions go back into the loving care of the space and time nurturing the Circle.

Monthly Sound Baths
Last Sunday of every month £20
(10% discount for members)
Sound Baths allow us to take much-needed time out for ourselves, resulting in a variety of noticeable benefits such as reducing stress, enhancing creativity, releasing emotional blockages and improving our overall wellbeing.
Many people express a sense of clarity, freedom and transformation following a sound journey, which can last for a number of days: the key is to arrive with an open mind ready to relax.
This powerful experience creates space for healing on multiple levels, which often leads to a deep state of relaxation. You may find yourself taking an inward journey similar to meditation or simply enjoying the beautiful layers of sound around you.
Attending a Gong Bath can be a very profound and unique experience. As you lay on a yoga mat curled up with your blanket and pillow, you are bathed in waves of sound and vibration from sacred instruments. There is no actual water involved.
What to bring: it is important to be warm and comfortable, so be sure to wear layers and bring anything you feel that would help you to relax i.e. blankets, pillows/cushions, eye masks, socks etc. Remember that you will be lying on the floor for an hour.
Please note each person must have their own account created and a purchase on that account. Please do not purchase tickets for groups of people, each person in the group must have their own account & ticket.
