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.

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.
