Full Moon Circle

Full Moon Circles


Celebrate the Full Moon each month with the Full Moon Circle at Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve near Barneveld, Wisconsin.

The Full Moon Circle is part of the Circle Sanctuary Community.

Full Moon Circle evenings are held on or near the evening of the Full Moon, and typically are held 7-9 PM. Each evening includes ritual, meditation, discussion, and socializing. Depending on focus and weather, some or all of the evening may be held outdoors. Full Moon Circle evenings are facilitated by Selena Fox and/or other members of the Full Moon Circle.

Circle Sanctuary land is open for arrivals at 6 PM and the Owl's Nest, Circle Sanctuary's spiritual gift shop, is open from 6-7 PM and 9-9:30 PM on Full Moon evenings.

The Full Moon Circle is open to adult women and men.  Each person attending should bring a votive candle in a votive glass to light during the ceremony.

Please RSVP in advance in order to get more details.  Use the form below, call 608-924-2216, or email circle@circlesanctuary.org.

Donations are welcome, but not required.
