Inspired by the Jewish ritual of Rosh Chodesh ("head/start of the month"), this gathering offers a space for us to come together each new moon to reset, reflect, and connect in a restorative evening steeped in the loving power of community. Become grounded in the spiritual energy of the month, gain insight into how the themes of the month are shaping your life, and enjoy the intimacy of a candlelit space where you will be seen and heard with compassion. While this gathering is focused on those 18 years old and beyond who identify as women or non binary, people of all gender expressions are welcome to come learn and help elevate these voices. Join us for our kickoff on Thursday, November 16th at 7:30pm. Our next location is TBD (but will be on the North Shore). We meet on the Thursday night closest to the new moon on any given month. We are looking to add 10 new members.

Step One


A new Well Circle is typically organized by 1-2 people who lead the process of inviting a small group to form a circle. We have plenty of resources to support our members who are forming new circles.

Step Two


Each Well Circle member commits to meeting monthly for Rosh Chodesh. You can get started by browsing open circles, starting a new circle, or signing up for notifications about circles in formation!

Step Three


Circles gather around the new moon and use the month’s Moon Manual to build an intentional space for reflection, storytelling, and support. Every circle is unique and sets their own intentions for the space.
