As you know, I send out my innergoddess newsletter* every Monday. Although Monday is a perfect day for honouring Selene, Hecate, Diana and all the moon goddesses, full moons also provide a magical backdrop to any gathering.
Whether the gathering be a drumming circle, story-telling, party-for-one, drinks and nibblies, or a night of high passion and sacred ritual, it doesn't matter - it's all significant to spend some time each month for gratitude, contemplation and loving our energy.
This is my favourite full-moon gathering spot (below). Share your favourite spot with us!
COOGEE BEACH, NSW (AUSTRALIA)
The Women's Pool at Coogee Beach is a heaven-sent haven for women drummers in Sydney - possibly because of its privacy, but also because of its surreal beauty. A steep grassed area slopes down to the sea-pool below and offers a magnificent view of the Coogee bay and white sandy shore. Even more beautiful is the stunning full moon and her reflections in the ocean that ripples in time to the magical energy of the group.
There is room for a group of up to 20 women (or thereabouts) to form a semblence of a circle on the grass, but I find this casual nature of the circle liberating - it allows me to break free from a tight drumming structure and have the courage to let my natural rhythm surface. There is a toilet block at the pool, and providing it is not a total fire ban, small fires may be lit for ritual.
