MOON MNÁ WOMEN’S CELTIC CIRCLE

 

MONTHLY VIRTUAL MOON CIRCLE & WOMEN'S CIRCLE TRAINING ON LINE

 

Moon Mná is an invitation for like-hearted women to celebrate life and love together or individually in tune with the Seanmháthair Gealach, Grandmother Moon's cycles. There are several ways to do this. You can email me, Karen, at moonmna@slianchroi.ie to sign up for the Moon Mná Newsletter and each month I'll send you that month's Theme. Then you have the option to join me for a free 'live' Facebook half hour introduction & Attunement to the Theme OR purchase Self Ceremony instructions based on the Theme (€15) OR you may choose to attend a Moon Circle in your area run by one of the Moon Mná facilitators I have trained by contacting them directly. Every few months I host a Theme on an Irish Sacred Site and you are very welcome to come along (cost €25).

 

After three years of running my own Moon Mná Women's Celtic Circle I received a heartfelt calling to teach others. So having offered a Dublin based training for 3 years, due to public demand that calling expanded to reach wider and wider national and international circles with an On-Line version.The Course trains women to host key Themes with related chants, cleanses and rituals. Importantly I also teach how to pass on the Celtic Rites of Passage including the Maiden, Mother & Crone Rites. This beautiful, simple Course costs €50 a month and you can start whenever you wish. Each Theme has video, audio and written material and we regularly 'meet' by video Conference Calls. If you are interested please email me at moonmna@slianchroi.ie to join our tribal soul sisters.

 

At certain times in the year I'll be facilitating at more public events and I'll invite you to come along via the Newsletter i.e. the Dublin Mind, Body, Spirit Festival and Body & Soul Festival.

 

HOW WAS IT BIRTHED?

The first Moon Mná evening was held in the Slí an Chroí Centre, Smithfield in August 2010. I was inspired to start these gatherings when doing Ceremony on the Hill of Tara under a glorious Full Moon.

 

To give you a flavour of what happens at a Moon Mná Women's Celtic Circle, I have outlined below a general sense of what to expect if you do choose to join me on one of the above options or contact one of the Moon Mná I have trained. All details are on the monthly Newsletters.

 

WHAT IS A MOON MNÁ WOMEN'S CELTIC CIRCLE?

A joining of joyous Soul Sisters who come together to celebrate a different aspect of being a woman. Within a safe and confidential group, there is sharing and exploration of the given Theme while enjoying the female perspective on life, love & the Universe.


Following a welcome cup of tea, the first hour is about opening & holding a safe & confidential space including a Cleanse to release any stresses & strains of the day, week or month so all sit lightly for the time together. Following the introduction of the Theme a ‘Talking Space’ is opened to voice our truth & express ourselves freely. The second hour is experiential with the practise or Rite or demonstration of the Theme. Finally the wrap up includes a Fire or Water Ceremony to release anything that no longer serves us & welcome in whatever does. Afterwards there is chat about the evening with another cup of tea & healthy biscuits. On the way home, we revel in the deep energies of Seanmháthair Gealach, Grandmother Moon, the turner of tides, Star of us womenfolk. I invite you to join us - to be yourself in the glorious company of soul sisters of all ages.
