Heart-opening Gatherings where Ancient Wisdom Greets the Modern

Circles of Inspiration are brought to you as heart-opening gatherings that lift your spirit and bring clarity, understanding and meaning to us as women.

This space calls for women who want to claim all of her glory not just in a rational cognitive thinking way, but instead a genuine experience of what it means to be woman.

Each Circle of Inspiration is a respectful place where ancient wisdom greets modern day life.

  • Women come to gather in a sacred circle opening the gateway for feminine mystery and insight.
  • Each woman meets her unique magnificence through the eyes of the other women, and this type of witnessing is powerful and invites truth to speak.
  • It doesn’t matter what you do for a living or what gender you prefer.
  • It doesn’t matter how successful you are or how many degrees you have.

Whether the opportunity of gathering in a women’s circle is new for you or you are a frequent visitor, all are welcomed here. There is nothing you have to get, no prior learning required, no competency achieved.

Women’s Circles belong to all women.

When women are seen, heard, and held by other women, insecurities, wounds, jealousies; and competition dissolves, authentic connections rise and deep friendships are cultivated!

Many women find it challenging to access their inner wisdom because of the noise of the modern world and being everything to everyone mutes her internal voice. But when we join in a circle and sit with the quiet moments, vibrating gently with the mystery of our essential nature, our true radiant self comes out to play.

We all meet as equals in a sacred, safe and welcoming space that holds the fabric of the feminine. Love, pain, yearning, heartache, fear, dreams, joy, despair, compassion, creativity, denial, truth, betrayal, intuition, power, happiness, vulnerability, selflessness, inspiration, clarity, achievement.

Nothing to do, nothing to prove and no-one to look after.

This space calls for women that are thirsty for genuine connection, clarity, purpose, enthusiasm, fulfilment, inspiration and self-empowered living.

We all meet as equals creating a safe and welcoming space.

Women have been gathering in sacred circle for eons, they come together to share their joys and sorrows and make sense of their jumbled experiences.

So, what happens?
On arrival you will be welcomed and gorgeous organic beverages are served for your enjoyment. Women gather in circle in The Mandala Room and the sacredness begins.

About the circle
The circle has particular guidelines that contain the mystery and safety of the space. These will be shared with you at the first circle however to support your understanding, we have listed some below.

  • We all sit as equals with no hierarchy, corners, podiums.
  • One woman speaks at a time and the other women practice open listening
  • We use “I” language and in doing so we take ownership of our own experiences, rather than hiding behind “we”, “they”, “it”
  • When we speak we share honestly and authentically about how we feel. Speaking in this way is both powerful and courageous and can take some getting used to.
  • You are your own authority and only share if you choose to do so
  • This space is free of advice-giving, fixing, therapy, comments and feedback
  • Judgements are left outside of the space.
  • The sacredness of the circle is dependent on maintaining confidentiality and treating each other with the utmost care and respect

We are delighted to have Vida as part of our team of facilitators here at The Sound Temple and look forward to her sharing her gifts with us all. Her key workshops here are The Feminine Way and Circles of Inspiration.

Here are some beautiful words which women have had to say about their experience with Vida ….

Vida opens a gorgeous space of acceptance and invites us just ‘to be’. I love her ceremonial introduction and the ambiance she so carefully creates to make us feel welcome. There is something so deeply earnest and wise about Vida and the space she creates to make us feel comfortable is so relaxing. I felt at ease and able to be vulnerable and share and in turn it was beautiful to be able to sit, listen and be in the moment of other’s sharing. Vida’s circles encompass so much honoring, love and depth -she facilitates us all getting to know ourselves deeply.
Thank you so much Vida!!


I had not attended a sacred circle for a long time and whilst sitting in the space I felt a rigid resistance to listen and feel within myself. The words of the other women ignited my inner flame, melting and softening the hard container I had buried many of my emotions in. I felt a sense of relief and clarity to speak what I had hidden and denied. Thank you for a lovely reminder of how liberating and enlivening it is to sit in circle with other women.

What sitting in a circle with other amazing ladies means to me is so hard to describe. It is one of the only places I can go where I feel truly, validated and heard, and no one “fixes” me! It’s a place I go to listen and accept others while feeling the meaning in my body. I’m learning to tap back into my feminine nature and embrace my true self. I’m truly grateful to Vida for creating this space. It’s changed the way I travel life and my life feels fuller and richer for it.”

I was initially drawn to The women’s circles because I felt curious and wanted to experience something deeper. I knew that with Vida Carlino, it would be a safe place, connecting with other women on a journey, seeking to awaken new possibilities. I highly recommend this for all women. It is a wonderful chance to be still and relax into something beyond the every day. I love these experiences, and they give me clarity and grounding that is hard to put into words. It is wonderful to embrace intentions of joy, love, acceptance, connection and peace wrapping around me. It translates to a real sense of spiritual calm. Thanks, Vida.
I am looking forward to more…
