In a world where individualism often reigns supreme, the power of gathering in circles, especially for women, is an ancient practice that holds profound significance in today's busy world. Beyond a mere social gathering, the power that can be felt when women come together in circle resonates deeply, entwined with the essence of community, empowerment, and sisterhood. 

This is why I created The Gathering, a brand shoot with soulful sisterhood, community and connection at the heart. As we prepare to celebrate the returning of the light, on the Spring Equinox - the halfway point between the winter and summer solstice, this is your invitation to join me as I host the spring edition of the Gathering at Chapel House Estate in Kent, on Wednesday 20th March 2024.

The divine Meegan Bradley will lead the circle with breathwork, journaling and intention setting for the season ahead. We’ll ground in the opening circle, take part in a mini-brand shoot and get to connect with other likeminded souls. I’ll be there to capture photos as the magick unfolds in breathtaking indoor and outdoor spaces as we explore the incredible house, walled garden, orchards and paddocks.

Expect an afternoon of pure magick and connection, all distilled in radically authentic images to support you in the powerful work that you do.

Sounds divine, right? If you’re curious to find out more or book your space, click here.

Here are 5 reasons why I believe it's so powerful for women to gather in circle spaces.

1. Creating meaningful spaces

In a circle, every woman's voice is heard, valued, and respected. It's a sanctuary where vulnerability is embraced, and judgement is left at the door. Women often face unique challenges and societal pressures, and in these spaces, you can share your experiences without fear of criticism or invalidation. Through open dialogue and active listening, women can find solace in knowing they have been witnessed.

2. Fostering connection and support

The power of connection among women is unparalleled. In a circle, bonds are formed, friendships are nurtured, and support systems are established. Whether celebrating achievements or navigating through difficult times, women uplift and inspire one another. The sense of camaraderie that emerges from these gatherings strengthens individual resolve and collective resilience.

3. Honouring diversity and inclusivity

Gathering in circle spaces celebrates diversity and has inclusivity at the heart. It's a space where women can share their stories and in doing this we enrich the collective tapestry of feminine experience. Embracing circle is to open your heart with understanding, empathy, and solidarity for our sisters who gather from all walks of life.

4. Empowering collective wisdom

Every woman brings her own unique gifts, insights, and perspectives to the circle. Through shared wisdom and collective intuition, women empower each other to embrace their authenticity and live their truth. The circle becomes a sacred container for growth, transformation, and self-discovery. 

5. Catalysing social change

Women's circles are not just about personal empowerment; they are also catalysts for social change. As women gather to share their story, their voices are amplified. The ripple effects of this can be vast, becoming agents of transformation in their communities and beyond. Through their nature of being, women's circles contribute to dismantling patriarchal structures and promoting justice, equality, and human rights for all.

I love gathering in circle with women. The significance of women gathering in circle spaces extends far beyond the circle itself. It's a sacred ritual that honours the innate wisdom, strength, and resilience of the feminine spirit. 

As women reclaim their voices, reclaim their power, and reclaim their place in the world, the ripple effects of their collective presence reverberate through generations, inspiring hope, healing, and positive change.

So, to all the women out there, may you find solace in the circle, strength in sisterhood, and courage in community. 

Together, we rise.

I would love to see you at The Gathering - book your space here.
