Inside the Rose Circles

Discover the healing balm in the Rose Garden of the heart.

Four times a year on the Equinoxes and the Solstices, we will come together to unite our hearts with the harmony of the natural world inspired by the rose and its traditions in mysticism, music and poetry. The rose, as the primary symbol of the feminine archetype, the Great Goddess and the soul, represents love, creation, fertility, wisdom, beauty, and mystery.

Through movement and various forms of creative expression, we will awaken in ourselves an inspired, embodied, soulful knowing to support and enchant us during our passage through these difficult times.

Come prepared to move and dance and share poetry, your inspirations, visions and dreams related to the Rose and the Rose Garden.


Anne Baring, PhD (Hons), author and co-author of 7 books will present on the rose and its traditions in mysticism, music and poetry

Ruth Cunningham, classically trained musician, sound healer and founding member of the Anonymous 4 will create soundscapes.

Peggy Rubin, Shakespearian actor and master of sacred ritual and group theatre, will recite poetry and guide us into creative expression.

Banafsheh will present on the symbolism of the rose in the Sufi tradition and guide us to experience the unfolding of the rose in our hearts through movement and dance.
