“A circle of women may just be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it…..”
Many years ago, I began to see the formation of a circle of women. My vision was raw, it was gritty, it was so beautiful in its ugliness. Filled with tears of both joy and sorrow until eyes were puffy and noses snotty, breasts and yoni’s. Women connected to themselves and each other….it was everything I’d never encountered and yet so desired.
In April 2016, whilst visiting Glastonbury, England, I purchased a beautiful cloth with a Charter of Sisterhood printed upon it. Yet it had sat dormant, on a shelf since my return 12 months ago. So often I would unwrap this cloth and sit, reading it as my heart would swell with the possibility that it promised. But the timing never seemed right, and so away it would be placed, awaiting it’s time.
“Who would want this?” Ego asked me, “You’re mad and no woman desires to be so open with another” my mind taunted. Over time, I have said many times to friends and mentors, “I just don’t think anyone would want to join me in the things I see for this circle I desire”. And so for years, despite the feeling of such longing, I have kept this vision safe within my heart. Safe within the creative centre of my womb space where I could protect it from judgement and rejection.
A time to choose…
But Spirit has a way of laying a path so perfectly designed that to reject it will leave you barren and empty. In my determination for authenticity, I knew I had to step out, show courage and risk the judgement and rejection that had kept me impotent for so long. And so I did…..
From this, Trinity Circle – A Space for Women was born in April 2017. Nervously I awaited bookings and yet I was calm in my surrender. Mornings spent meditating and dancing in the Trinity Tent, showed me the energy and plan for the first circle and I trusted that what I felt to be right, was how it was to flow.
The circle is realised…
This space was embraced with such tenderness and (to my surprise) eagerness…..I wasn’t alone in my desire for open, raw and gritty. There were others that wanted to dance with sensuality and desire, but not for any man, but with delight for their own juicy bodies. And there were others that wanted to connect deeply with other women and themselves.
Again, as the end of May approached and the new circle began to form in my mind and on paper, I raised my eyes above and questioned, “Really? No one will want to do that.” Yet I trusted and as six women sat in pairs last week, holding hands, staring into each other’s eyes, tears began to fall, at the beauty they saw in one another. And I knew…. THIS is it… Everything and more… THIS is the sisterhood… We are returning!
Even as I write this post, tears are springing in the corner of my own eyes, at the memory of the beautiful connectedness that was both April and May’s, Trinity Circle – A Space for Women. Thank you dear sisters who have joined me thus far.
