October 5th~Naming this
Full Hunter's Moon

Traditional October Full Moon names used by Native Americans include:

  • Full Hunter’s Moon” 
  • Travel Moon” 
  • Dying Grass Moon” 


"This year, the October Full Moon is also a Harvest Moon! This is because it falls closest to the autumnal equinox. Around the Harvest Moon, the moonrise happens soon after sunset for several evenings in a row, which traditionally allowed farmers to have much more light to finish their harvest!

Many Thanks to Leslie for hosting our Full Moon Gathering and sharing her sacred space!
This New Moon in Virgo~ in addition to releasing a few points of friction and stress or personal neglect; we discussed integrity and how we use it to be accountable to the loving intentions we've set for ourselves. Discussion included: 

  • What does integrity mean to you?
  • In what ways in your life could you demonstrate more integrity with acting and responding from love?
  • In what ways do you already uphold the integrity of those intentions? (Don't forget to give yourself a little credit for the loving efforts you already make every day.)

"Here is what I think Integrity Is:
It's choosing courage over comfort. Choosing what's right over what's fun, fast, or easy. And practicing your values.

"How can I release myself from my limitations?"
An online Reading from the Messenger Oracle Deck by Ravynne Phelan
"Love that you are different. You have strengths and weaknesses, and both are worthy of love. Know them, honor them, and don't heed those who tell you that you must change in order to fulfill their expectation of you. You will never be who others expect you to be. You can only be the unique individual you are meant to be. Love that you are different for it is your differences, and loving those differences, that make you truly beautiful.

Mentors and Muses

"When we love one another the most delicate truth of that love is held in the spirit, but my body is the record of those I have loved. I feel their bones as my bones, almost literally. This record is autonomous. It continues, dumbly, to persist. Its power is independent of time. The love is fixed, instantly accessible to memory, somehow stained into my body as color into cloth."
Anne Truitt, Day Book; The Journal of An Artist

"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."
~Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

What do you want the Circle to Become?

Wellness Presenters Welcome!
FEEL FREE TO LET ME KNOW IF YOU Have a wellness skill you would like to present during the circle and/or if you know or would like to invite somebody to present a wellness practice to the group. Three Weeks Advanced Notice is required to have this included in the agenda and newsletter.  
This circle is intended to facilitate your pursuit of Wellness through Unified Feminine Energy as we explore the Feminine Face of Spirituality in its many diverse forms. Open to suggestions; I am currently referencing the Global Sisterhood Facilitator Guidelines and the book, Sacred Circles by Robin Deen Carnes & Sally Craig, to work through some options for our Sacred Circle.
What does a Circle of Unified Feminine Energy look like to you?
Do you have any suggestions to help the group focus on our mission to be our Well and Authentic Selves?
What policies do you think the group should adopt (i.e. attendance, cancellation calls, shared responsibilities, guest presenters for guided meditation and/or healing practices, etc.)?
How do YOU see the group spending its time in the next six months?
What is YOUR “ideal scene” for the group? When you think of the perfect situation for the group to be engaged in, what does that look like and feel like to you?
We currently meet monthly, as close to the date of the New Moon as possible. Would you be interested in meeting MORE frequently?

Please send your responses to the studio via email:  or mail to:
