Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary has announced a unique event for women. On Saturday, September 21st from 10 a.m. to noon a women's circle gathering will be held. Women of all ages and backgrounds will spend time exploring change that comes from within and will contemplate the role of peace in their lives. Women's Circle organizers cite the ancient tradition of meeting in a sacred circle as a way to honor and empower a woman's intentions and a way to express a commitment to world peace. The sacred circle will also take place during the portion of the month which features a full moon.
Women are often tasked with the duties of peace maker and care giver. Gathering in a sacred circle during a full moon is a soul-cleansing way to recharge and renew. On the 21st, participants will be exploring the concepts of peace on a personal level within the sacred circle and will explore the challenges to this peace within their daily lives. It is through this process that participants can more deeply comprehend how to free themselves and empower the consciousness of peace within their own piece of the planet. Organizers state "It is great to want peace; it is even more profound when we learn on a personal level how to empower it within our daily lives."
The fee to register for the event is $25 and participants are asked to bring a journal.

Winslow Farm exists for one purpose: to provide love and care to the many animals without a home or who have been abused and/or neglected by their previous owners; a sanctuary where animals can learn to trust humans once again. The sanctuary is open to visits from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Tuesdays. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children and children under age 2 are free.
