We live in a fast paced world and can sometimes forget to notice the cycles of nature that are occurring around (and within) us. The moon is silently and very powerfully completing a cycle of waning and waxing each month and, when it is full, shines brightly in illumination of all that has been and all that is to be. Taking time to sit together in a circle when the moon is at its brightest can be a deeply enriching experience. Shining light on our inner landscape through deep listening and authentic sharing together is a deceptively simple activity, which can birth powerful alchemy. In honour of this, Jenny holds a circle each full moon.
This is a mixed gender circle and is slightly different each month, depending on this particular moon; its astrological influences and which tree it relates to in the Celtic calendar. This circle is a held space that is co-created by your individual experience of this particular moon and the alchemy we weave as a group. It will contain reflection, deep listening, sharing, song, sound, ceremony and finish with a focused time of creative play and manifestation. There will be a selection of art materials available, including clay, paint, wire, beads and natural found objects.
Please bring an object of current significance to you, to energise on the altar. Everything else is provided.
Cost: £20 Bookable online. 2 Concessionary places of £15 available. Please ask for details.
Time: 6.45 for a 7pm start. Ends around 9pm
Held at The Mission Hall Studio, 37 Burns Street, Leith, EH6 8DS and sometimes outside venues during the summer months.
I have recently set up on-line booking on my website, so if you have any problems with it, or any questions generally about the circle, please get in touch.

She holds the circle by drawing on her experience in all of the above, as well as following whatever she is guided to do in the moment.
