Moon Lodge Circles



Join us for Full Moon Circles
in Southern Vermont!

Honoring the cycles of the moon,
and the spirit of our grandmother's teachings...


*** Follow Link to Sign up for Moon Lodges ***

         Every full and new moon, we join together for twice monthly moon lodge circles, created to bring together spiritually minded people in search of community ritual. Together we are journeying into lunar mysteries and magic... building spiritual community and deepening our own devotional practice. Ritual and ceremonies are based on European pagan traditions of moon rituals and ceremony, but we are open to all forms of prayer and ceremony that is respectful of its origin. Our lodges are held from 6:30pm - 9:30pm in our home in the woods, in Westminster, VT. Depending on the weather, we will either be outside, in one of our yurts, or in the house.

         At moon circle we gather to talk, create ritual, meditate, share wisdom, tell stories, pray, connect to the earth, heal, and honor each other. Each moon has a theme according to the moon, and will include different meditations, dances, chants, rituals, and activities. By forming circles at each moon circle we are reclaiming our mysteries, our blood, our power, and each other. It is also simply a great time to meet other fabulous people!


Come with an open heart and be ready to take off your shoes and get down!
Wear comfortable clothing, and bring a friend if you'd like!

Excerpt from Circle of Stones Healing Lodge - Australia

"Traditionally, amongst the early civilizations, women all experienced their moon flow (period) at the same time, and this usually centered on the time of the full moon. At these times, the women would retreat to a special lodge set away from the rest of the village or camp, and would bleed together. Their blood was sacred and it was caught in moss pillows and poured into special bowls for offerings to the Goddess and healings later. During this time, the women obtained visions and signs through meditation and so on, which were relayed to the men after the time of moon flow. They were then required to bring them to fruition. During the time of the Moon Lodge, the women would make baskets and other important tools, as well as work related to healing and fertility magic for the people... Women today participate in moon lodge at any full moon, and it does not matter if it is a bleeding time or not. It is now recognized as a time of contemplation and honoring yourself as a woman."
