I’m Lisa, I have been a part of First Circle this year, and what an amazing year it’s been. I first stepped up to first circle, as I had attended two Being Woman Gatherings and I could see what a wonderful benefit the gathering is to the women who attend. And, as an ongoing creation, I could see how being a part of a conscious community is so valuable, both to the people directly involved and to the wider community. Attending the gatherings and participating in such connectedness with a wonderful group of women and furthering the re-emergence of the honouring of the divine feminine, seemed so valuable that I was willing to put my time and effort into Being Woman… I wanted to contribute to this beautiful community.
What I didn’t quite expect was how much I would personally grow and transform this year.
I’m a mum of 2 daughters 9 & 10 years old, and I’m also an environmental scientist who worked for 15 years at Griffith University EcoCentre, teaching sustainability and being the community network coordinator, so I have a lot of experience in working with community and organising events etc. I’m also a healer/researcher, Reiki master, past life regressionist, co-author of the book ‘Awakening Your Intelligent Heart’, co-creator of Luminous Women, based on feminine spiritual practice and a women’s temple facilitator.
So the conscious women’s community work seemed a natural place for me to contribute my time and skills, which I have done this year. But…whatever I have put in, has been returned a thousand fold this year, in the learning, the growth and the personal transformations that have taken place through the conscious connection with the loving, wonderful, authentic and supportive circle of women that made up first circle this year, through the wisdom of the basket, through the wisdom of the elders that have guided us along the way and through the love, struggles, beauty, support, and wisdom of the Being Woman Community as a whole.
I feel blessed to have been a part of First Circle this year and just want to say THANK YOU!
Hope to see you at the gathering.
Love Lisa xx
