We need to find ways of coming together and collaborate with each other. Combining our efforts is now more necessary than ever.
Each circle of women across the UK and Europe may have their own unique flavour but what we are guarding goes way beyond our small collective efforts but the difference we can make will ripple out for the benefit of the coming generations

The cowrie shells in our logo
represent the circles of women that have sat together from time immemorial, holding the world alive through their communal intention of well being and good will for all things alive.
From the beginning of time, these Cowrie Circles of women, taught our young ones how to sit together how to hold circle, how to maintain the old wisdom and dream the world alive for future generations!
We grow in all directions and all directions are honoured as they were by our ancestors and will be by our great grandchildren - the six directions (north, south, east, west, above and below) and the four elements of life (fire, air, water and earth).
The cowrie shell is a female symbol. It’s meaning has been varied through different cultures throughout time. It is one of the oldest known forms of currency used around the globe.
In African cultures the cowrie shell is a sign of fertility. In Japan women would hold cowrie shells while giving birth for a successful and less stressful delivery.
