Let the light in…on the darkest night of the moon. The dark of the new moon provides a powerful time to take stock, set intentions, and clear what’s no longer needed in your life each month.

In this four-month circle, we’ll meet once a month near the new moon to learn intention-setting and clearing practices, the effects of the moon on our lives, and how to fortify and nourish our bodies, minds, and spirits.



You are invited to the New Moon Women’s Circle, a monthly gathering for woman-identified people. We will meet near the new moon each month from September through December 2018 (specific dates and times below). Once the group starts, it will be closed. We ask that you commit to attending all four circles. The New Moon Women’s Circle is hosted by Rachel Farinelli-Vita and Chiara Viscomi.

All classes are held at Scarlet Sage School of Traditional Healing Arts.
