As highly sensitive people and empaths, we enjoy our time alone. We prefer the quite of nature to the noise of malls, avoiding crowds when we can. Because we feel everything so intensely, it is important for us to have a harmonious and peaceful space to write in. We feel through every layer of this material world. We are not only familiar with the story of the Princess and the Pea, we are the Princess.
We feel the expansion of the Divine Feminine energy that amplifies our creative power. We understand the magic that happens when we come together in a shared purpose. We leave behind competition and we uplift each other. We celebrate our wins and hold space during the lulls in our creative expression. We encourage each other. We inspire each other. We laugh together. We cry together. We listen to each other and we feel heard. We are women who love women. We are re-infusing the world with Divine Feminine Authority.
Like space/time our healing energy and our creative storytelling are not 2 separate things. They are in fact, inseparable. Both are aspects of our creativity that exist together as one thing. Whether we see ourselves as healers or not, we are. Our writing heals us and, in turn, those who read our stories.
We have experienced the darkness of this world and have gone through powerful transformations. We share the wisdom of our experiences through our stories. You'll find our words written across many genres. We weave fantastical tales of magic; we share tips and techniques on anything from crafting, to business, to raising children, to dealing with depression; we talk about how we healed ourselves and we show you how to find healing; we take you into deep discussions of the mysteries of this world or we just make you think. Our spiritual ways are part of who we are and come through our writing one way or another.
We write. Not because we want to but because we must. We have so much to say to the world - brilliant insights, mystical secrets and magical stories. If we don't share it, it wrecks us. To deny our story is to deny our life. We do not feel complete unless we are writing. Our art is our life.
We may take our writing seriously but it gives us great joy to play with words.
Our writing is a sacred practice entered into with conscious intent and often with rituals like ...
Magic is a big part of who we are so therefore it is a big part of our writing process. When we are not wielding our pens, you will find us swinging pendulums, pulling tarot cards, mixing healing potions and consulting celestial charts. You may see us writing in solitude but our guides are always close by offering us wisdom and inspiration.
Being a writer is a solitary and sometimes lonely journey and so we come together in circle to inspire, support, listen to and encourage each other. We are not just a community but a movement - an evolution in the way stories are created and shared out into the world. We are writers lifting up writers. We are not looking for permission to be who we are or acceptances of our stories. We are just seeking good company with whom to quietly write. We don't need help to write. We just want to write together. Connecting together in this way brings us very close, very quickly. We are not just people who come together to work. We are family.
Whether we are at the beginning of our creation having just the spark of an idea or in our final edits, we work together in natural rhythm and flow.
• We meet 3 times a week to write.
• We have a special day each month for tea and talk.
• There will be guided meditations to take us into our work.
• We work with colour and Tarot cards in a very specific way which is designed to help our work.
• We check in with each other about our well being because we know that is not separate from our work.
* We have a library of resources that grows as we do
• We offer each other honest feedback when asked
All that is shared in our private group is done so in sacred trust. Each member of our circle makes a sacred promise that what happens in our writing circle stays in our writing circle.
We meet in our writing circle through zoom and we have a private facebook group for ongoing discussions.
We meet 3 times a week and we rotate between Morning/Afternoon/Evening to accommodate different time zones. Dates for Monthly Tea will be announced by the end of each prior month.
Women used to come together in circle to share our hopes, our fears and our stories.
We're reigniting this ancient practice.
