At the beginning of summer 2016, my dear contributor and friend Alexandra Roxo came to me with an idea. Wouldn’t it be rad, she suggested, if there was a way for us to connect with our readers and followers in REAL time, on the regular, no matter where people were based. Her proposal? A regular virtual Full Moon ritual that harnessed the power of the Internet to CONNECT the humans behind the social media handles.
Well it was an immediate “yes” from me, and we’ve since joined forces to host these monthly gatherings—creating a friendly space for people to connect, with us, with each other, and with the cycles of Mama moon. For me, the experience has been equal parts EMPOWERING and HEART-OPENING.
Commenting on each other’s social media posts is one thing, but man it feels good to TALK! We’ve had feedback with people using words like “this was so profound”, and “you helped me understand something about myself so much better.” One woman even described one of Alexandra’s guided meditations as “life-changing”!
Wow! We realized very quickly that this is powerful stuff (as if our witchy great-great-great-great-grand-mama’s didn’t know it), and began talking about ways we could EXPAND this offering. And it was actually while hosting our first retreat in upstate New York with darling Elyssa Jakim (beneath an enterprising and structured Capricorn Full Moon) that the idea for MOON CLUB began to form.
And the idea is simple. Moon Club is a monthly coaching and mentoring program, using each moon phase (the 28-day cycle following the moon from new to full and back again) as a backdrop to our real-time PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT and spiritual ACTIVISM.
As Alexandra and I know from our own experience, it’s one thing to check your weekly horoscope, read all the self-help books, and share all the spiritual articles on Facebook—but s*it gets REALLY REAL when you learn how to apply all this to your daily HUMAN existence here on earth. And having walked the talk ourselves and then some, we’re creating a space to offer our members some hand-holding and sisterly support as they do the same.
Oh but our BIG MISSION? To inspire a new generation of change-making COSMIC CRUSADERS, who will take this work and use it to help create a world that future generations can ALL believe in. You know and we know this is needed like never before!
