New Moon Circle with Cold Water Therapy
Time & Location
About the Event
"Working with the cycles of nature and the cosmos offers us a beautiful opportunity to deepen our connection with ourselves, that we are cyclical beings and mirrors of nature, the moon and the stars." - Sadie
We’re inviting you to join us for a restorative and deeply nourishing session to reset with the wisdom of slowness of Winter’s Yin and the water element season, along with the New Moon in Aquarius, the water-bearer, as we work deeply with the water element in all it’s beautiful various forms.
The Season -
In the depths of Winter our energy has retreated inwards, the cycles of nature and the ‘water’ element of Winter invite us to hibernate, to reflect and restore so that we may conserve our energies during the Yin phase of the year and reap the rewards come Spring where we feel a sense of renewal and rebirth as we shift to Yang. At this time we are close to the cross-quarter festival of Imbolc, early spring, where the energies are beginning to awaken and emerge and the light is growing stronger. This is the time of the Wheel Of The Year for renewal, hope and new beginnings.
The Moon -
The Moon is dark at the time of our session, becoming new again in the early hours of the following morning. We will harness these dark-new moon energies for deep healing, shadow work, release and intention setting - this phase of the moon is perfect for slate-clearing and planting new seeds.
The sign of the moon is Aquarius, the water-bearer, yet it’s actually an air sign. So it’s really wonderful to be working with both the breath and the water on this day. The energies of this moon are about community, imagination, consciousness, freedom, innovation, authenticity, soul purpose, awakening, humanitarianism and connectivity.
Cold Water Therapy -
We’ll be working literally with the water element in our beautiful location with a lake for cold water swimming. You may be thinking cold water doesn’t seem in alignment with winter and hibernation, but in fact it couldn’t be more in alignment. The cold water assists the body in withdrawing the blood to the body’s core, bringing the energy to the centre of the body and invigorating the whole system for a complete reboot, helping to build the immune system and restoring our energies deep within.

There will be space to share, but there is never any pressure. This circle is about honouring you. If you’re new to this type of thing come with an open mind and know that this safe and nurturing circle will hold you.
