Befriend our darkness; bring all aspects of our womxnhood into expression.
The Dark Circle is an online gathering for womxn that promotes connection, expression and transformation. Rooted in the mythology and wisdom of the Dark Feminine, the Dark Circle represents a space in which we can befriend our darkness; bringing all aspects of our womanhood into expression.
Dark Circles are a monthly online sharing circle for womxn to share their feelings & to be heard. The circle starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 9.00pm. The circles will be online to maximise accessibility and ensure we can be consistent with our meetings during the current times.
Based on the format of a traditional women's circle whereby the holding of the group provides a non-judgemental space that allows each person sharing to hear themselves and potentially find a deeper insight into themself as a result. The focus is on listening and being heard rather than interpretation of your sharing.
The Dark Circle sets itself apart as there is a specific welcome to darker aspects of ourselves - anger, pain, sorrow, uncertainty and anxiety. This invitation is anchored in an understanding of the power of the archetype of the Dark Feminine.
The ancient archetypes of empowered women look vastly different to what we have come to expect today. Their storied myths and the wild wisdom contained in them offer us an alternative template in which to explore a sense of self which is rooted in the integration of all aspects of our womanhood. The Dark Feminine’s wisdom teaches us that the unknown places within us which we consider to be our most shadowy parts, in actuality represent the fertile and Heartlands of all-that-we-are. It is from this place that we can embody the fullest expression of all-that-we-can-be.
This is a womxns sharing circle which supports the voicing of all aspects of self which society at large attempts to deny or silence. It is a supportive compassionate energetic presence in which to have your own expression witnessed by other womxn who are also befriending their darkness.

About the Hosts
Deborah is a performer, storyteller, theatre-maker & facilitator. For her, stories hold the potential for deep healing, and laughter offers the possibility of irreverently unveiling the absurd ways the world can be. She digs into myths, flys with the magic of fairytale and revels in writing theatre sketches that shake-shit-up. Her explorations of story and Self extend to the realm of Systematic Constellations - a collective healing practise which focuses on our personal stories and seeks movement where relationships and narratives are stuck. She is the co-creater of comedy show 'Queen C*t Sacred or Profane?', movement show 'Raven' and storytells 'Inanna', 'Sacred Bees' and many more - all of which hold feminist themes. www.deborahantoinette.org
