Join us for a Women’s Group Gathering this January 13th, online. The focus this month is Compassion - not just the deep feels and mindful parts, but the actual functions it serves in life.
Alexa Owen, (alexaowen.com) a meditation teacher, certified yoga therapy instructor & clinical science researcher, will lead this month's conversation.
What are the foundational mechanisms of compassion? And where can we find places in our lives to implement more of it?
What does it mean to practice compassion fully in a contemplative lifestyle? Alexa will guide us in a few exploratory practices.
You'll learn some new tools for your own practice and be able to share in discussion in the circle.
Come prepared to learn and be seen ✨
About the Gatherings
When women come together to celebrate each other, magical things happen. We seek to unite women by honoring what makes us different, what makes us unique. We celebrate your individuality, your creativity, your vision, and your strengths. This is a community for connection, fun, and support to help each other thrive.
Join us every month around the new moon, we’ll come together online (and perhaps in person in the future!) to celebrate sisterhood, finding your unique path, and the traditions that persist. With themes changing monthly, we’ll explore astrology, motherhood, work, ancient rituals from around the world, and creative living.
This group was founded by Jules Greeneisen while in the early stages of forming Gather Brooklyn as a jewelry brand. She realized her enthusiasm for a supportive work environment and wanted to create more natural spaces for women to come together and feel safe to express their needs with each other.
This group is service-orientated and was created out of the love of women serving women. It will always be free.
Lots of Love,
The Gather Team
