Life is beautiful, mysterious, full of magic...
and oh so messy!
It can be quite the whirlwind of jobs to do, errands to run, emails to answer, and people to care for.
I first created this circle because I was tired of getting swept up by the daily grind. I wanted to simplify my life, AND I wanted more out of it. I felt the need for more inspiration and accountability to keep exploring and nourishing my Creative Soul - even through the chaos of life. And I knew others did too.
I wanted to connect with women on this creative soulful journey. I wanted to share my discoveries, my curious thoughts, my heartfelt creations; and I wanted to witness the magic that others were creating and discovering.
But as we gathered month after month, I started to realize we were co-creating something so much bigger...
This circle became our sacred space to take off our armor and lay down the burden of needing to be all things to all people. To be authentic and real. To make room for sacred solitude and for collective sisterhood.
This circle became our steady beat back to center, the rhythm that keeps our creativity and our Soul alive. The one thing that holds us in constant, loving support throughout the daily ups and downs of our life journey.
I invite you to join us in circle, not because I have the answers, but because we are stronger together.
Side by side we start to remember our interconnectedness to each other and all there is, we start to remember that we are never alone. As we lift each other up, we build trust in our own wisdom. As we share our stories and speak our truth, our voices become stronger and our hearts lighter. As we practice showing up as all of who we are, we build the courage it takes to make the changes we wish to see in our lives, and in the world.
Together, in co-creation with the Universe, our community weaves a web that supports us all.
SISTERHOOD, CREATIVE MAGIC, & EXPLORATION
What the Creative Soul Circle has to offer:
Connect with like-minded women from all around the world (and perhaps even in your area!) whom you can actually talk real to, without judgement or unwanted advice. We are changing the way women relate to themselves, and each other. With us, you know you'll always be supported with love and compassion. Your creative, spiritual journey is a personal one, but you don't have to go it alone.
Access our private Community Hive (OFF of Facebook!) away from all the noise and distractions, where you can be free - and encouraged - to be YOU. It is your safe space to practice showing up as all of who you are, and be seen with love. It is your safe space to use your raw authentic voice, to share your thoughts, stories, and creations. Here, your voice matters, YOU matter.
Together we live and create by the light of the Moon and celebrate the natural cycles of our world - so we may remember our inherent connection to all there is and tune into a more nourishing cycle of ebb and flow. Our rhythm will keep you rooted in what matters most to you through the chaos of life, reminding you to slow down to nurture your Soul, and guiding you to take purposeful, inspired action.
Immerse yourself in continued inspiration, resources, and thought provoking conversations to keep your creativity, curiosity, and Soul alive. Each Moon cycle, we explore a different theme, based on aspects of self that are often hidden, suppressed, or considered "right-brain". Receive prompts, meditations, printables, integrative activities, and creative exercises to help you dig deeper.
With a new guest speaker every month, and sisters alongside you who are dedicated to speaking their truth and sharing ideas, you'll always have fresh perspectives to expand your awareness and cultivate your curiosity. You'll feel called to reflect on your practices, beliefs, and fears, to practice trusting in yourself as your own wisest guide, and to celebrate the beauty in diversity.
ENCOURAGEMENT & SUPPORT
Through our weekly and 'moonthly' rituals, and live virtual gatherings, you'll have loving support, encouragement, and accountability for you to continually face your truth, to be your best self, and to make the changes you wish to see in your life. You can count on us to hold your hand through your darkness, celebrate with you in your light, and reflect your greatness back to you in all the messiness in-between.
When you step into our circle, it becomes your steady beat back to center, calling you back home to yourself, to others, to the Earth, and to Spirit.
What Members Are Saying:
"There are so many courses out there, it can be overwhelming; but I keep coming back to this group. I've realized I don't need any others, because I continue to learn new things in the Soul Circle and there's a sense of familiarity and safety that I don't find elsewhere. The other group members are so supportive and Kristal is absolutely amazing. She shares her knowledge with us and is so encouraging and supportive of each of us." ~Heather Lenton-Fritsch
"Kristal has created a wonderful, nurturing experience for kindred souls in the Soul Circle Community. It is magical the way we gather around the monthly themes and easy activities to expand our self awareness. There's an ease and flow here and the monthly guidebooks are great. And the sharing and support between community members is phenomenal!" ~Mary M.

Is this only for women?
While I do believe it is important for men to do this work as well, this community is currently dedicated to hold space for those who identify as a woman.
Is it a one time fee or do I pay monthly?
Your membership is based on a month to month commitment with a new experience and exploration every month; so you will be charged each month you remain a member (or each year if you choose the Yearly Membership). You are free to cancel at any time.
What if I decide this isn't a right fit for me?
First, I want to make sure you understand: This isn't a program, or a class - it's a true community. And in community, the more you show up, the more you receive in return; but it may take some time for you to feel truly at home here, just like any new relationship. But know, I am always here to support you in any way you need.
With that said, if you join us and show up to connect, but find that this isn't the right fit for you - I'd be happy to refund your money so you can use it toward what is. All you'd have to do is email me within 30 days of registering.
I have a super busy life, will this even work for me?
I envision this community working seamlessly into your already busy life. This isn't about DOing more. It's about living life with a different perspective and having the support by your side.
Our motto has always been "take what you need, and leave the rest". So while we do offer a monthly theme and supportive prompts and exercises, making use of that content isn't even necessary to get value out of being a member here. Just holding our theme in your heart, and knowing you have sisters by your side, can bring much clarity and richness into your life.
Will I need to be online at any specific time?
In general, no. Most of our interactions happen within our Hive (aka forum gathering space) which you can visit any time you'd like. But I would hope that you join us for our live gatherings whenever you're able, as it is a rich part of building connections. We usually gather about twice a month. The dates and times shift depending on the Moon cycle, but they're usually at 9am or 2pm eastern. Recordings are made available if you're unable to join us live.
What exactly is included with the membership?
As a sister in the Soul Circle, you'll receive a variety of resources to support you such as:
- Rituals and reminders to stay connected to the cycle of the Moon, which will keep you rooted in what matters most to you and in tune with a more nourishing cycle of ebb and flow.
- A theme for us to explore each Moon cycle, based on aspects of the feminine "right-brain".
- A lesson, story, or conversation starter with each theme to get us exploring it within.
- Guest speakers throughout the year to bring a new perspective to the group.
- Suggestions for easy and practical ways to work with each theme within our busy day to day, as well as journaling prompts and ritual ideas to guide your explorations.
- Creative exercises to dive deeper into these parts of yourself and express them.
- Guided meditation audios created by Antje Tara Howard to connect with yourself and awaken the quality we're exploring within.
- New Moon Journal Companion PDFs filled with ideas and printables to use in your creative journal, such as our exclusive Mandala Portals created by Alison Russell and our Moon dial.
- Live, online gatherings (about twice a month) to deepen into the quality we're exploring, to share our stories, and to create under the light of the full Moon.
- Unconditional love and support within a sisterhood in our private, sacred "Community Hive" - a modern-day forum type place to gather, OFF of Facebook and away from all the noise and distractions.
But what this supportive container truly offers, is a safe space and the support for us to practice showing up as all of who we are, find our voices, claim our power, and celebrate our self-worth so that we may have the courage to make the changes we wish to see in our lives, and in the world.
What themes will we be exploring?
Our 'moonthly' themes were carefully chosen to naturally weave together as we shift from one moon cycle to the next, and are each based on "right-brain" aspects such as intuition, senses, emotions, vulnerability, spirituality, expression, beauty, gratitude, pleasure, dreams, and more; with creativity, curiosity, and playfulness being our guiding light. You'll see our full schedule once you join us in the Community Hive!
Have a different question?
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll discuss if this is a right fit for you.
My hope is that this membership community will not only provide a nurturing, inspiring environment for you to deepen your relationship to yourself and support you in aligning your life with your truest self, but also a space for you to deeply connect with others and meet life-long Soul Sisters.
