We are spirits with divine female energy who hold each other’s stories near to our hearts. We are the place loved ones go to heal and mend from trauma. Like the beautiful moon we move with the seasons by delving deep into the unknown with art, literature, poetry, nutrition and meditation. We’re here as a collective to calm minds, spirits, and bodies all alike to give all things feminine a voice.
