New Moon Circle 10/15/2020

The Vision. The Dream. The Intention.

Once Upon A Time, many many moons ago, people from around the world were in tune with cycles, rhythms, seasons, so much so that a lunar calendar was born. The lunar calendar remains, and so does the moon with its cycles.

While the path of the moon continues round and round, many of us have gotten off cycle, and in states of dis-ease, spun off by foreign rhythms, spinning us out of control. Rituals, setting intentions, taking the time to pause and listen to our inner guidance and wisdom within a community bring us back into rhythm, harmony and a state of ease.

It is between the inhalation and exhalation that we can take a pause and reset our nervous system. On the night of a new moon, of this simple pause that nature gives, please come and join me in community, to set your own intentions and come into rhythm, and right relationship with yourself, your life and your loved ones. Please share this with others to attend.

Join me 

Come as you far, no more and no less.

Logistics
We will do the meetings via zoom for now with the hopes that we will do it in person in the near future.

Zoom ID will be sent once you RSVP.
Space is limited to 10 people.
You can let me know if you are attending through facebook message, instagram or email drnesrin@nesrinabuatamd.com

What to Bring
– Something you hold as sacred, or what makes you feel comforted or safe. It may be a stone, or a blanket, or a picture of a loved one.
– Something you hold as beautiful or brings you joy. It may be flowers, or vegetables from your garden, or your pet.
– A hot cup of tea, or maybe some incense

May you be well.
May you be at ease.
And may you be at peace.

See you at our circle among other fellow sojourners.
