Roots Deep Branches Rising Groups for Women

Roots Deep, Branches Rising
Women's Sacred Circle

"Spirit of life, come unto me.
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion.
Blow in the wind, rise in the sea; move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.
Roots hold me close; wings set me free;
Spirit of life come to me, come to me."

~Carolyn McDade, 1981

*A "closed" group is one in which the same group of women are together for a chosen amount of time. New members are not taken in once the group begins to allow women to form bonds of trust and safety with each other. Each session lasts a season.

*Each week, a basket will be set out for you to place your payment in. Women are asked to pay what they can afford anywhere between 11 and 22 dollars - the sliding scale fee for the class per week. I would like to keep the group accessible to all women. If you can afford to pay the higher amount, it will be appreciated as it will ensure that the group can continue to run and to be available to all women despite their financial situation.
