Moon circles are monthly gatherings that foster spiritual well-being through reconnection to self, community, and nature. Symbolic of introspection, this circle meets around the new moon and will be affiliated with and inspired by the WILD Woman Project, though this event is open to all genders.
Led by Dr. Allison Mitch, PT (DPT) (They/She), the circle will utilize meditation, reflection, sharing, intention setting, and ritual based on a monthly theme. By meeting regularly, circles create continuity and accountability so that participants feel centered, supported, and inspired to live in greater alignment with their inner WILDness, or wholeness of being, after circle and across circles.
The flow of the circle is as follows:
- Ritual greeting
- Invocation and lighting of the candle
- Centering exercise/meditation
- Introduction to the theme
- Creative visualization/meditation
- Reflection and journaling
- Group sharing
- Intention setting
- Group sharing of intention, if time allows
- Closing ritual
Please wear comfortable clothes (yoga or street clothes) and be prepared to spend time outside, weather-permitting. Additionally, please bring a journal and a pen or preferred writing instrument, yoga mat, and a pillow or cushion to sit comfortably on the floor for meditation. Participants may also bring an item for our altar.
Location: 1926 N. Main Street, Wheaton, IL
