Weekly Women’s Circles happening online via zoom that help us rediscover and re-establish a Sacred Sisterhood bond and empower ourselves as a woman. We come together to share, create, exchange, be with and celebrate each other neutralising competition and jealousy.
These Circles are led by our Devī School Certified Women Circle Facilitators.
Welcome Dear Sister!
Women have a sacred bond with each other, a bond of trust, which has broken down and been forgotten by many over the last decades.
Women’s circles help us rediscover and re-establish that bond and the value of being a woman, having a sisterhood and being a mother in and of the universe.
We are thrilled to invite you to our New Devī Community Circles, where we can reclaim that bond, reclaim our voices and let our stories be heard. Let ourselves be seen.
Being seen and witnessed.
Being heard and validated.
Being celebrated and admired.
This is at the heart of out Community Devī Circles.
For many women we have met, coming together in a women’s circle is something unknown, scary, challenging, and even at the thought of it they feel to reject it or laugh at it.
Why is it so scary? It’s just a bunch of women. Have we asked this question?
We have felt betrayed. Perhaps we ourselves have betrayed. And so we have lost trust. With this, jealousy and competition have become the unsteady foundation upon which we sometimes relate. It is not a comfortable and safe space in which to open our hearts.
Yet all we long for is to be real with each other and ourselves. To nurture and be nurtured. To love and be loved.
Why Community Devi Circles?
A Devī Circle is a Sacred Circle of Women where we come together to support each other on this journey of life.
There are times when we do not have many resources or we find ourselves helpless. We seek help in society, our partner, our family and sometimes, through means that are not so healthy. Yet we need support, nourishment, and the steady presence of an open heart.
When these other sources of comfort and understanding are not available, where can we find the support we need?
Knowing yourself as the source of love, happiness & security is the greatest wealth one can possess as a human being.
As I can love people freely without agendas, not needing them to be in a certain way, so that I can be happy.
Having self knowledge means I can grant people space to be who they are and appreciate them as Laksmi, as a gift from the Universe as my Sacred Mirror.
We all have something to learn from each other.Let's inspire each other to grow, rise and shine!
Diving into the Sacred Feminine and connecting with myself on a deeper level and understanding that there is only Devi, in all of us. I experienced so much nourishment, nurturing, love and healing!
~ Brenda, Holland
Nourishing meetings with women who share a longing for spiritual growth. Sharing our stories and desires in a safe, soft and sacred place. Celebrating that we are women. Welcoming whatever is in our search for deeper knowledge of self. Offering our presence as the best present. Sharing the power of prayer. Restoring old wisdom. Mirroring our fullness.
~ Anna, Sweden
A Women's Circle.
Where time and space resolves.
Where division is nothing but a wrong vision.
We come together to see each other.
Naked, raw, vulnerable, real. Strong, brave and free.
To give voice to what has been unsaid.
To release what has been unfelt.
To unite in the sense of loneliness.
To care for all that is with love and tenderness.
To share silence.
To be present.
To pray, invoke guidance, clarity & self knowledge.

ARE YOU READY?
Be Woman Project is based upon 11 core values with its origin from the Vedas. Here we will mention some of the important ones when we are meeting in a Community Devi Circle.
Ahimsa (non injury): we meet another woman with the intention of not hurting. We meet with physical respect and humbleness, as well as emotional tenderness. We use words of respect and admiration instead of words that can hurt another sister
Abhayam (fearlessness): may I not be afraid of you and you not be afraid of me. When we show our vulnerability we can easily feel naked and raw. We invoke for our circles that we can be naked and raw without feeling threatened by another woman, without it to be a competition. We lift our hand just like Ganesha does to show that we are in this together, and there is no need to be afraid of each other
Madhu Vratam (a vow of sweetness): we honor each other's existence and presence with sweet words, compliments and support. If we see that another woman is in need of some support we can stay present, place a hand on her shoulder, ask if she needs anything, give her a tissue if she is crying, a chocolate or some sweet honey- dripping compliments. Be as sweet as you would meet a newborn baby. When we are not in a physical circle, but meeting in the virtual space we can still give a smile or write some supporting words in the chatbox.
Ksantih (accomodation): the understanding that there is always a reason, a background, for another woman's behavior, attitude or words. We say that “If I would have been you, I would probably do the same”. We are complex beings. We only see and meet a little piece of a woman's story in a Devi circle. Meeting the stories and a woman with another background than yourself without judgements but with glad acceptance is something we always aim for.
A circle of women where we can come and be just as we are. Already whole and complete but often we need sacred mirrors to see and feel that we are already more than enough. It's a circle for all women (those identifying as women) with different backgrounds, different ages, regardless of skin colour and nationality. It's a place where we meet in a safe and held container to open up about our deepest fears and biggest dreams, to know that everything shared goes back to Devi, to the infinite. It's a place where we support each other, where we see, where we admire each other, to neutralize competition and jealousy that is often so deep rooted in us from our upbringing. It's a place where we validate each others feelings and stories and also learn to validate ourselves. It's a place to come back home, to reclaim the power of being a woman in all its forms and colours, to find your own voice and to dear to share it with the world. ~ Mette
With warmth in my heart and womb I am writing this message to invite all of you who are hearing the call of the sacred feminine to gather in sacred circles of women to embrace the myriad facets of life, rise from isolation and loneliness into the Oneness with all beings.
I know that these circles that are held by my trusted students & sisters who have been trained in the Vedic teachings, practices and the secrets of the sacred feminine can literally shift the course of life & restore the sense of belonging.
Devī Circles have changed my life, they have supported me during the most challenging times. Since then the prayerful sacred mirroring which is an integral part of the circles which are based on mutual honour, respect & appreciation for each other has taught me how to embrace all my relationships.
In the Vedic Vision & Teachings life is meant for growth and as a society we are meant to support each other on this journey of life. The Be Woman Community Devī Circles are our heart offerings so that we can further grow, deepen & strengthen our Sacred Sisterhood so that we all can come back home to ourselves eventually abiding in the love that we are as one whole and complete being.
One of the Visions for Be Woman Project was one of a Global Sisterhood to manifest a Temple where all are welcome no matter the background, age or color … where all can join and participate in women’s circle and experience the magic that comes from it and heal their wounds in a loving, compassionate and empowering way …. I am so happy and grateful that we are now able to offer these circles to you.
May all obstacles be removed so that you can join and re-discover the healing nature of women’s circle. Money often is one of the obstacles. This time we covered that for you. The circles are by donation. Give from the heart if you can & based on how the circles have impacted you and it will come back to you a 100008 fold.
With so much love in sacred sisterhood

I'm so excited to be able to invite you to the Community Devī Circles. They have been so transformative in my life and have helped me become a better communicator and listener, improving the way I relate with others and with myself. Having a Sacred Mirror is so precious to me and I am grateful to Shāradā for her teachings, love and trust in brining this Sacred Offering to life.
Having the possibility to share from the heart without the fear of judgement, and being accepted just as you are, having the love reflected back at you and seeing that you are never alone in anything you are going through is what I have experienced since day one participating in Circles.
Since then I have stayed committed to the path of Growth & Self-Knowledge and am blessed to immerse myself in the Vedic teachings, learn about Sacred Rituals, Mantra, Sanskrit and help to manifest, participate in and co-hold space in the offerings proposed by Be Woman Project & Devī School.
I have a deep heart connection to the Art of Communication in the form of words, music, movement, yoga āsana or creative arts and am now in studying to become a Trauma Informed Embodied Feminine Wisdom Teacher and Coach. My heart has always been searching for truth, growth, healing, connection and pure happiness with no reason.
See you in our Circle Sacred Sister!

I am passionate about giving truth and meaning to life. As I transitioned into motherhood in 2015, I made a life transition into walking the path of finding out «who am I?».
I am now a mother of two young boys and have deepen my knowledge into the field of sacred pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I have experienced premature birth which led me to a need for deeper healing.
I am passionate about the fundamentals for women being cyclical and have embodied a cyclical way of living life more in harmony with my bodie's shifting needs.
I hold a MA in psychology and have studied yoga, chanting, embodiment and Vedanta for years and am today teaching in Oslo.
I meet you where you are at the moment, with a vision that every body is unique.
I am looking forward to being with you in Circle Devī.

I am Paulina and I live in Sweden. I'm originally from Chile but I have lived in Sweden since I was a little girl and unfortunately I don't have have much connection to my Chilean roots. I’m a mother of three lovely human beings. I am a midwife and have always worked with women. I think women are incredibly powerful. I totally think we are amazing!! I have a masters degree in reproductive health and I have done a lot of medical volunteer work - helping refugees in Sudan,
Greece and Sweden.
I guess I have been taking care of other people all my life- since I always had the urge to help others. Unfortunately, I forgot to take care of my self. So, I collapsed doing my Phd a
few years ago. And then my journey to heal started...
Thanks to the Be Woman Project - I have started to take care of my self and today I can say that it has totally transformed my life. Vedanta has really opened my eyes... since it's the knowledge of the self...it unfolds reality and the truth of yourself. Vedanta says that self-ignorance is the cause of all suffering. So nowadays self-knowledge and healing is my biggest and only project. I will forever be grateful to Shāradā Devī and the Be Woman Team. Thats why I have committed to stay tuned with the project as a connection sister. I want to be there for other women that also need support in their lives. I am looking forward to connecting with you dear Devīs!

Since I was a young girl I was interested in the sacred. As a young girl I would ask my parents if I could go to church even though they never went there themselves. I was in awe when looking at the mosaics of the windows in churches or the sounds of the instruments to worship the divine. When I got older though this feeling of wanting to go to a church has transmuted into the discovery and exploration of wanting to find my true nature.
It all started with my first trip to Bali in 2015 where I for the first time came across being silent for days. It was pure magic to me and finally I could start to hear the subtle sounds of the goddess inside that has been shut down for so long.
From that day on everything started to expand more and more within.
I came across Mysore Ashtanga Yoga in 2016 and went on many more silent meditation retreats over the last years. In 2020 I started with Contemporary dance and I recognised that I am in love with everything that moves. Whether it is vinyasa or the flow of my arms in a choreography.
This year I will finish my second Master Degree in Psychology and long to unite western and eastern psychology in order to approach mind and body holistically.
Looking forward to Connection with you Devī

A Devi Circle is a sacred place where women meet and share without being judged. Where they can come together and learn universal values, where they are free to speak from their heart. A place where women can come excactly as they really are without the mask we usually wear when meeting people to be accepted. A place where we all see and mirror each other, where we listen without judging or giving advice. Where we hold space for each other, accepting and being accepted... for what we are. And also where we celebrate and honour womanhood. ~ Paulina, Chile
That my confusion about life is shared with many. That women can create beautiful and very strong communities. That I contribute just by listening and sharing my naked story - this "my honest presence" is the only thing I have to deliver. Women circles also taught me that it is not only men who don't understand women - we have to become better at understanding ourselves too and share that knowledge. I have always admired older women as mothers, artists, teachers etc but I have unfortunately been scared of many women in my own generation as situations of competition and rivalry have occurred. In women circles I got to understand what sisterhood can bring. And a sense that we grow stronger together, that together we create something that no one of us ever could create on their own. Very powerful sensation. ~ Anna, Sweden
I am still scared of the thought of being so naked in front of other women, but it heals me, step by step :) The beauty of the Vedic Knowledge in and through and the heldness in that, transformed me and also makes it a safe space. I think it is something that only goes deeper and deeper, the experience of this. The healing in such a wide perspective. Something that came to life quite early in experiencing circles was that I started to see my ancestors, get in touch with them, the women, and connecting into both my own and the collective history we have. ~ Paulina, Sweden
Welcome to Our Next Devī Circle
Sunday, 28th August ~ 6pm to 8pm CEST
Theme: Welcoming Our Inner Children and Becoming Your Own Best Mother
Marion Woodman, a renowned Jungian analyst and author stated, “Children who are not loved in their very beingness do not know how to love themselves. As adults, they have to learn to nourish, to mother their own lost child.”
And yes... All too good I know myself how it feels to not get what I truly would have needed in the most crucial developmental stages of my life. How lost she felt. How painful it all was. And to re-cover all those years... it takes time. It comes in stages and the process of re-parenting the inner ones won’t happen overnight.
In the same way a mother has to first get used to being a mother and build trust with the child, in the same way the inner children need your trust before they open up to you completely. But over the long run and out of experience, becoming a good mother to your little ones is innately rewarding and makes you grow in many ways.
I invite you to join me this Sunday at 6pm CEST to meet and unleash our inner children. How is she like? Is she shy, wild, ecstatic, numb, traumatized, reckless, rebellious.... Or maybe all of them? Maybe it is also more than one that wants to show up... All of them are SO welcome in our space. We will start off with an inner child meditation and if time allows do several re parenting exercises.
We then open the space to share from our hearts about the relationship to our little ones and our childhood. Since for many of us this topic is very sensitive I encourage you to only share what you feel comfortable with. There are no must’s and no agenda and you are free to stop sharing at any time. Maybe you can gather one cherished item (can also be a symbol e.g. you liked climbing onto trees: a leave) that reminds you of your childhood.
Some Practical Information:
☽ Investment: join for free or give a donation
☽ How to sign up: you can sign up through this page
☽ Facilitator: Lea Jule Geissler
☽ What to bring: pen, paper, an item that reminds you of your childhood, a flower, (oil essence to oint yourself) and setting your space up in a snuggly way that you feel comfortable in
