If you’re looking to start a Well Circle, one of the first questions is: who will gather with me?
You know you’d love to gather at the new moon. You know the Moon Manuals are here to support you with new activities and rituals each month. But who are the people who will help bring your circle to life?
There are several approaches to this question:
At The Well now offers a dedicated section of our website to support you in connecting with new folks who can bring your Well Circle vision to life.
(Or, are you looking to add some new members to an existing Well Circle? List your circle here.)
The people who come together to create your circle will help define its energy and bring its purpose to life. What do you want them to know about your vision for your Well Circle?
Here are some sample descriptions to get you started:
This new Well Circle is a space for women over 40 who are transitioning through perimenopause/menopause, and other life transitions. We are planning for hybrid gatherings: in-person, but meeting virtually in winter. We are open for 7 more to join our circle.
Sonoma County, CA
Our vision is to co-create a space for Jewish women and nonbinary folks to create a deep Jewish connection, community and sisterhood (regardless of gender expression) in Sonoma County, with an emphasis on an earth based connection. We will blend together conversations, sharing meals, meditation, interactive activities, and journaling to create an environment that makes us all feel connected to and supported by each other and the beautiful earth we share. We are a safe and open place for queer, disabled, poc, and any and all walks of Judaism.
We meet in-person and are open to decide meeting places and times as a group.
We are a group of primarily mothers, though we welcome anyone who is looking to build relationship with other women who live close-by. Though most are Jewish, we have a few individuals who come from interfaith or non-Jewish backgrounds, and we all share a genuine care for Jewish wisdom and spirituality.
We meet in-person, typically on weekday evenings, and we are open for 3–5 more to join our circle.
