Women’s Circle with Siobhan
Join us in sacred circle as we gather amongst the gardens of Riverdell Spiritual Centre, in the company of birdsong and flowers.
About this event
Women’s circles are an ancient practise whereby women gather to hold space for one another in love. In this gentle space, held in love, all that is within your heart is welcome and honoured, as we connect to one another and the earth through ritual, ceremony, and reflection. Join us in sacred circle as we gather amongst the gardens of Riverdell Spiritual Centre, in the company of birdsong and flowers.
Through the rise of patriarchy, this ancient practise was forgotten. As patriarchy rose, women hid this practise and forgot to tell their daughters where they had hidden it. Women are now remembering what was hidden -women are connecting, holding space for one another, allowing themselves to be seen and heard. Women are remembering what was once lost.
As we gather together in sacred circle, may we tend to one another’s hearts with gentleness and care. May we hold space for one another with tenderness, for holding space for the heart of another is an expression of deep love.
All that is held within your heart is welcome dear one, and all will be held with nurture in our loving space.

Together we gather,
To remember that we are not alone,
That within each of us lies one another,
That we are one another’s greatest teachers.
So let us listen to one another’s stories,
Let us know one another’s tears,
Let us hold one another’s pain,
Let us see one another’s gifts,
And let us find one another’s light.
Let us remember,
That within one another,
We find one another.
For healing takes place when we gather.
Please note that this is a sacred and safe space where women are given the opportunity to be seen, acknowledged and held. However, it is not a therapy or somatic release space. To honour the safety of the space, quiet spaces in nature will be available for women to individually retreat to should they feel the need to step away from the group to tend to strong emotion if it should arise.
