“Groups run by and for women are our psychic turf;
our place to discover who we are, or who we could become,
as whole independent human beings.
Somewhere in our lives, each of us needs a free place.
A little psychic territory.
Do you have yours?”
- Gloria Steinem
I came across my first women’s circle in 2015, as part of a group of 19 women who journeyed together over Jewels Wingfield’s year-long Initiation into the Sacred Feminine course. As soon as it had ended, I realised that I felt so strongly about its radical, restorative effects that I had to bring circles to my own community. I had found my “psychic turf”.
Because despite being so ancient and simple, circles are nothing short of transformational. They are a unique oasis of calm in which women can connect and converse in a way that is simply not possible in any other social context. They are real, raw, unedited, life-affirming and utterly precious. They allow us to be the emotional creatures that we were born to be. They allow us to be equals.
Which is why I have committed to hosting two BoboMama (in-person) circles a month and one virtual circle a month. All (those who identify as) women from all walks and every stage of life are welcome. No experience is necessary.
I would love you to join me!
