New Moon Sacred Sisters Circle
The New Moon in Virgo is symbolized by the Virgin, associated with a virgin mind who is void of the illusion of knowing it all already. This circle invites you to experience the world through a beginner's mind with curiosity, play, & wonder. Ask "how is it?" rather than saying "this is how it is.

About the Event
This Circle Includes:
- Opening & Closing Circles
- Nature Walk with a Beginner's Mind
- New Moon Intention Setting
- Group Sharing
A beginner arrives unprejudiced & open minded, making every little thing full of wonder. It is how a child feels as they discover the world for the first time. Do you remember your first snowfall? Your first time in the ocean? Your first crush? Things are new & exciting to the virgin, but start to lose their wonder & excitement as they become ordinary.
"In the beginner's mind, there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few."
- Shunryu Suzuki Roshi in Zen Mind: Beginner's Mind
"The way out of that flattened attitude towards life can be found by becoming a beginner again... By throwing all the windows & doors of your life wide open & forgetting that you once knew what the wind was. By spreading your hands & fingers & feeling the thing you call wind."
- Geertje Coulwenbergh in The Magic of a Beginner's Mind
The New Moon is a sacred time when the moon is dark, at the end of one cycle & beginning of another. In this circle, we will set intentions for the New Moon Cycle ahead.
The meeting spot for this circle is at Luna's home, along the shore of Arrowhead Mountain Lake. The exact address will be sent after completing registration & is approximately 25 minutes from Burlington or about 2 minutes off of Exit 18. During this circle, we will head across the street to the Russell Greene Natural Area for a nature walk. Please bring bug spray.
In case of rain, the event will held in the bell tent with slight modifications to our event itinerary.

Space is limited to the first thirteen women who register in order to preserve the circle's intimacy & connection.
