with Joanne Franchina and Guest Facilitators

We will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month, and we will celebrate the change of seasons during those monthly circles in which the solstices occur (March, June, September, and December).  This year, our primary circle leader, Joanne Franchina, will occasionally welcome guest facilitators - including Rose Vanden Eynden, Melissa Anastasia and more - to lead us in soul-enriching activities. 

Soul Circles

Immerse yourself in Soulful Community and return to everyday life a changed person! 

In our monthly Soul Circles, you'll experience spiritual renewal as you join with other practitioners to share spiritual healing, wisdom, and practice in innovative ways: through creative expression, meditation, energy work, sharing, and practice.  Each month's activities will center around a theme or topic, such as Creativity, Self-Care, or Gratitude, and how those energies have been experienced across cultures and over time.  We may occasionally express ourselves with simple handcrafts, creative movement, or sound.  And in each circle, we will share tips on how to cultivate, focus, and embrace these energies into our everyday lives - that's because, as powerful as group circles are, it's our daily spiritual practices that empower and manifest our personal intentions.  Each circle will be unique.  

Furthermore, for those circles that take place during months in which the solstices and equinoxes occur - March, June, September, and December - we will celebrate the change of seasons with special ceremonies.  You’ll connect with the natural, sacred energy cycles of the year as we join in community to celebrate, empower, and transform our lives.  We will invoke the energies of the coming season, participate in sacred ritual, and express our spiritual truths and intentions - so that we may bring all aspects of our lives into greater harmony with our individual and collective sacred callings.  

Please note that the Soul Circles or Seasonal Ceremonies may occasionally meet at another location, such as an outdoor facility.  Some will be led by Joanne, others by Rose, still others by both, and occasionally, we may enjoy the special wisdom of a guest facilitator who will join us.  These events are open to all, so bring your friends or your mate and be prepared for an inspiring evening!   

Because of the spontaneous nature of these events, we ask that you sign up to receive the email reminders that will contain all of the relevant details, or be sure to check the Inner Compass website before you venture out to join us.
