Nourish and Restore Our Spiritual Selves
Participating in Moon Ceremony brings our feminine gifts (for both men and women) back “on line” after generations of suppression. We get to strengthen, and learn to trust, our intuition (knowing without knowing how we know). We are able to heal and balance our emotional bodies, releasing a rich source of vitality, and to expand our creativity into its fullest potential. All these gifts are so needed now to restore wholeness, harmony and balance to the world. Our embodied presence and intentions are our gift back to Life, and benefits all our Relations and the generations to come.
Elevate Our Consciousness
Engaging in ceremony activates higher brain capacities and rewires our programmed responses. It takes us out of the fight/flight survival level functioning and into our neocortex and prefrontal cortex functions. Those higher functions help us shift our perceptual state and access levels of reality that transcend ordinary time and space (3rd dimensional consciousness). We can leave the past behind, and step into the space of the sacred, the realm of pure potential, where all things are possible.
Power of Community and Unity Consciousness
When we gather with others who are called to remember ancient ways and wisdom, we connect with all those who have come before us, and also those who will come after us. We join in love of this Earth with all those around the world who also hold intentions for planetary healing and transformation. Ceremony amplifies and anchors our intentions into the multi-dimensional unified field of creation.
Being in the company of others of like heart and mind reminds us that we are never alone. This helps heal the wounds of separation and isolation, and reweaves us back into the greater community of life, as we remember that we truly are all One.
New moons invite us to explore what is waiting in the dark of our beings, our deepest fears and desires, what may be hidden from our conscious, every day mind. It is about new beginnings, as we are reminded that everything emerges from the dark, from the void. It is a place of pure potential. New Moons are perfect for deep contemplation, and for planting the seeds of new intentions into the field of creation. At new moons I like to work with the water element, the great connector and source of life.
Full moons bring things to light, and are about completion. When the moon is full we are invited to reflect on what in our lives is finished, what we needs to be released. I like to work with the element of fire, to place into the flames in a symbolic way what is no longer serving me so that something new can emerge into my life. When done in a conscious sacred way, fire rituals are powerful messages to the Universe of your desires and intentions. These encounters always leave me feeling lighter, more expanded, and breathing a little deeper and freer.

Here is a recording of a Full Moon Ceremony to give you the flavor of how I work.
What you should Know
Who should attend?
Moon circles are ideal for beginners and experienced moon circlers alike. For those just beginning to explore feminine mystery traditions, I welcome you with open arms; you’ll feel like you’ve always been here. If you are returning to the circle, I look forward to seeing your familiar face.
We use Zoom technology so you can participate by phone or through a computer or tablet. Once you are registered you simply call or log on to the teleconference site to connect.
We start with a Welcome to the Circle, an overview and opportunity for people to check in. Then we move into opening sacred space and either a guided journey or initiatory experience. The Circles last approximately one to one and a half hours.
We usually meet twice a month close to the New and Full Moons. All ceremonies start at 6:30 pm Eastern, 8:00 pm Newfoundland Standard Time. Invitations to Moon Circles are sent by email to those who have subscribed to my Shamanic Wisdom newsletters.
Moon Ceremony dates for Fall 2023 are:

There are often special Gatherings at Equinoxes and Solstices. These events are announced through my newsletters.
It is especially helpful to have a private place with no interruptions so you can fully participate and get the most out of these gatherings. Especially, turn off your phone and other devices. You might light a candle and some incense or smudge your space. If you have a drum or rattle, you can use it for the Invocation and Opening of Sacred Space.
These meditations take me deep very quickly and beautifully. The Circle holds and grounds me between moons and the messages are just what I most needed to hear. Carolyn Seely-Mayo
I notice my intuition is stronger. I love the connection I feel with the Moon and Sun cycles, and with the Galaxy. The circle feeds my spirit. MaryAnn Burrows
I was able to let go of something I'd held on to far too long. Now there's a calm strength I've never felt before. I feel rejuvenated! Linda Earle
The ceremonies help keep me balanced, non judgemental, and focused on strengthening my heart light when the shadows threaten to surround me. I feel so blessed by and thankful for the company of like-minded souls and that you share your wisdom and service in this way. Cathy Green
I want to free what waits within me...
In those deepening tides, moving out, returning
I will sing you as no one ever has.
