New Moon Hoop


Thursday, February 15th, 7pm

The New Moon Hoop is open to all Women who wish to gather within 4 days of the New Moon to pray, meditate, drum and sing. We gather in Native American style, welcoming all beliefs and religions, to join in sacred circle. Bring a drum and rattle if you have them (I do have extras), and bring a light snack to share if you feel called to - but most importantly, know there is a place for you with us. Contact me for directions to the Hoop  301.481.2607 or xina@whisperinghoop.com

The peace of wild things

When despair grows in me and I wake in the middle of the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.


I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water.


And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting for their light.

For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

~ Wendell Berry
