Temple Time Returns

We sat in  hushed silence, 22 women (yes!!) centering together  in the luscious garnet parlor of the Balch Hotel. The fragrance of rose mist and daffodils infused our circle, as we stretched comfortably into the space.

Gathering in Temple Sophia, I was in awe of who showed up and what they shared.

Deep, strong, creative, resourceful women; hungry for self-care, connection with like-minded sisters, tired of being  exhausted and overwhelmed. Looking for a deeper connection with self, Source, Soul and sisters. Sacred Mystery and Goddess.

Drinking the Nectar of Feminine Mysteries

I had a profound sense of arriving on a long path to share this moment together. I felt confirmation on so many levels. It seems others felt this as well:

“Thanks for this circle. I’ve been looking for something like this for so long and was surprised to find it here! How exciting!”  – Jen, The Dalles

“I wanted to thank you Claire for the wonderful evening ! It just reminded me of how much I need to bring  women’s circles back into my life more often! It was so wonderful to meet you all and connect with fella travelers on the path! Hope we can get together again soon.”  – Lulu, Ashland

“What a wonderful evening! I enjoyed meeting some other like-minded women, basking in the tranquility of your space, and channeling my inner goddess. Lots of revelations!  I’m feeling re-purposed and renewed!  – Linda, Cave Junction

“The whole environment was relaxing, impeccable and nurturing. I was so surprised and happy that there were so many women. I read my journal later and I was moved by the poem I wrote below. – Sheila, Hood River

Tall, lanky, late bloomer
Hard on the outside.
But with the little strokes
Of the ants drinking the nectar, the petals release into wild abandon,
Unleashed and free. Bright
Pink and crazy beautiful!!!

Perhaps you want some of this nectar and release into wild abandon? Join us!

Next Temple Sophia is…oh my…next week! Register early! Seats are limited and the last one sold out! If you’re attending for the first time, there’s a 2 for 1 special to bring  a sister for free.

Check the Events page for details about this and other upcoming Soul Nourishment.

Bright Blessings of  Spring!



P.S.  Since this gathering was such a big hit, I’ve decided to offer others. Maybe one where you live? Or a virtual version? Or an on-line book club?
