This circle is dedicated to women in Montrose and nearby areas of Houston who would like to come together in a safe space to discover what a Sisterhood Circle is. When I first began my spiritual journey, I had no idea where to go or who to ask about this, so I spent a lot of time on my own seeking and searching out groups of like-minded people in the hopes of becoming “part of”… something, anything that would help me feel connected to a community.
What I found lacking, for me, during this time of exploration was a sense of belonging to any one group. There was this strange phenomenon that happened everywhere I went. It became apparent that everyone already knew each other – even those that seemed like they were from worlds apart – they were already all connected. I often felt like an outsider who didn’t know the rules: the dress-code, type of drum to bring to the circle, how to read tarot cards, what crystal balances which chakra, the mantra and essential oil of the day… you know, square peg, round hole. I kept showing up anyway and got to know some really great people who have accepted me into the fold, but I still feel awkward a lot of the time, like I’m not sure if I really fit in or not.
What I want to offer you, dear sister-friend and seeker is a group of women who will become your “people” – first, meeting each month for the new moon rituals via the Global Sisterhood, then as friends who will show up for you in whatever way you need them to on your spiritual journey.
Have questions about malas and how and when to use/wear them, where the best drum circles around town are and who will go with you to them, what exactly ARE tarot cards? … literally, women who will hold your hand and walk with you as you explore different avenues on the path to enlightenment; ESPECIALLY those who are not all interested in “looking” the part of a ‘spiritual gangster’ yoga guru or throw-back hippie from the 60s. If that’s your thing – which it is mine on occasion – cool, but not required.
I’m grateful to be part of Houston’s “conscious community” and look forward to continuing to grow in my understanding of spiritual practices and rituals with them and with you. After all, we’re all in this together!
