Earth Wisdom Circles

Earth Wisdom Circles

Come and celebrate the turning of the seasons with ritual, feasting and community! Get in touch with seasonal cycles and reclaim your intuitive, creative & ancestral wisdom…

When we honor nature’s cycles, we can better understand our own cyclical energies. We can better dance the balance between light and dark, giving and receiving, yang and yin in our lives. We also begin to cultivate a deeper relationship with the land we walk on and the beings that surround us. 

Earth Wisdom Circles are truly a deeply nourishing self-care experience. Held since 2014 in Toronto, these circles follow the pagan wheel of the year. They are inspired by my years of Earth-based practice and training from various spiritual teachers, artists, healers and my path of reclaiming my ancestral wisdom. 

We explore 4 main stages of the creation cycle that is reflected in nature- birth, life, death and rebirth: The Maiden/Trailblazer, Mother/Nurturer, Enchantress/Magician and Crone/The Wise One that reside within us. Through guided meditation journeys, art making and ritual, we co-create a space where our creative, intuitive self can come alive.  

We embrace a diversity of experience and identity, all are welcome who resonate with the teachings and descriptions. The intention of the space is to be with our authentic emotions, bond with others, and create transformation and healing in our lives.

“Serena’s kind and warm nature makes everyone feel welcome and included. She creates a magical environment and has the ability to help you reconnect with the person you truly want to be. She’s very knowledgeable and intuitive. I am very grateful to have met her and for having someone like Serena in my community doing what I believe is important work.”- Nancy L.
