Sacred Sister Circles for The Bride to Be
Kate Reed, MA (Counselling)
Something profoundly beautiful is happening to women all over this planet. It is a powerful force beyond our limited language. It is the gentle yet insistent longing of deepest selves. It is a ‘call’ to move away from meaningless and empty exchanges and reach for the deep connection that our souls are craving.
And so it is that we return to the ancient practice of sitting in Circle.
Women have been communing in Circles throughout the ages, sometimes openly, and sometimes in secret, but always with the intention to bear loving witness to the lives of their Sisters, offering support, strength and wisdom.
Your Sisters understand that committing to a life partner is a profoundly sacred act. Honouring and celebrating the significance of this union through a Sacred Sister Circle is a beautiful way for the women in your tribe to bless this next chapter of your life prior to the wedding.
On the day, you will be nurtured and nourished through beautiful sacred rituals that are intentionally designed to honour your rite of passage. You and your Sisters will be invited to participate in a traditional smudging ceremony, wisdom sharing, a sacred water blessing and a fire ceremony that allows you to let go of all that no longer serves you as you move forward into your new life with your partner. The Circle finishes with a crystal gifting Ceremony that connects you and your Sisters in a beautiful and deep way so you can rest into the knowing, that you are held with love by your community.
Sitting in Circle with your friends is a meaningful alternative to a Hen’s Party. You will feel enriched and nurtured by the experience in preparation for your wedding day, and, into your future with your new husband.
