There is something magical, otherworldly even, that happens when we gather in a circle of women. We become greater than the sum of our parts. We transcend the limitations imposed on us by our society, we dream bigger, we feel stronger, we love more tenderly. Circles are medicine for our weary souls.

My intuition says you agree with this and dream of being in a circle where you can feel trust in the space and courageous enough to be vulnerable - a space where tears can be honored, wins celebrated, and challenges tenderly witnessed. I want this for you too, and believe you can have it. I also know that those of us who long deeply for it are the ones meant to create it in our communities.

Dearest one, 

How-to guide for hosting a

A Sacred
and Supportive
Women's Circle:

So you may be thinking...

Where do I start?
How do I create a circle that feels like all those things?

Here's how to host your own circle:

How to set the space

Inside of this guide you will learn step-by-step how-to host a wildly fulfilling circle from beginning to end which will include:


(and why this is important)

(including what *really* matters and what doesn't)


(the rituals to incorporate
 and best ways to have all women feeling equally supported)


(and why doing it mindfully is important)

Because I get these "how-to" questions so much, I sat my booty down at ye ol’ laptop and I created this step-by-step guide to help you do just that - imperfectly and easefully start a circle of your own.

There are many ways to have a circle. This sharing circle format is one way I have found, time and again, to be simple and effective. I share it with you with the intention of getting you going on your path, and in no way want to present it to be *the* way to circle. I share it from my heart with the promise that it has been deeply transformative in my personal practice as well in the practices of many folks I have guided in this format.

My life’s journey has shown me that we aren’t meant to do any of this thing called life alone, that we thrive when we are held in sacred circle, in community. 

I have been circling, in some form, for over a decade. While I wasn’t raised in communities of women deeply holding one another, when I experienced circling it quickly became the catalyst for my own empowerment and aliveness. I hold, and participate in circles, imperfectly. But that doesn’t cause me to waiver from my devotion to the practice. 

Beyond being a circle tender, I am a writer, host of the Belonging podcast, retreat facilitator, and community holder. I wrote the book, Root & Ritual: Timeless Ways to Connect to Land, Lineage, Community, & the Self. I’ve dedicated my life and work to supporting women to experience a deep sense of belonging by connecting with the cycles of nature, ancestral wisdom, working with their hands, and being in community.
