Gather the Women Nevada County is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. As part of our business practice we are asking that each woman who attends a circle sign our Liability Waiver & Release Form. If you go to multiple circles, you only need to sign one form. There may be special waivers for those circles held in commercial locations instead of private homes. Thank you for supporting us in this process.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration, location, and detailed flyer.In this warm, supportive group, you will transform limiting and unconscious perceptions of your life, discover inner secrets of healing, learn how your dreams reveal deep messages, learn how adversity is a gift, and eliminate judgment. We’ll work with the challenges you are experiencing, whether regarding physical health, emotional harmony, relationships, spiritual growth, or other struggles.This group is sponsored by the SNMH Dignity Health Cancer Center and is open to all women wishing to heal on any level. The work is particularly effective for those dealing with cancer now or in the past, dealing with cancer (or death from cancer) of a loved one, or working with caregiving cancer patients. This group is not a therapy group, but rather Soul and heart-based. You will learn to perceive your challenges of body, mind and Spirit from an unconditional, healing perspective.
Women’s Prosperity Circle
Contact: Robin Milam
At Ariann’s home near Grass Valley
Do you find yourself on the edge of “never enough” and wanting more financial security? Our attitude towards money contributes to truly having the life we dream. Through examining and redefining our relationship with money we intend to create expanded prosperity. Please join us as we support each other in transforming our relationship with money to create greater financial flexibility. We’ve completed reading and discussing Lynn Twist’s book, The Soul of Money and Easy Breezy Prosperity: The Five Foundations for a More Joyful, Abundant Life by Emmanuel Dagher.
In March, we will decide where to go from here. One possibility is to shift into being a MasterMind group. If interested, please let Robin know. Feel free to bring a snack to share.

Sounding for Self-Care & World Peace
Meets Monthly\Third Tuesdays
Please contact: Hilary Brumley
email@example.com for more information and directions.
In this circle we will explore the healing, transformative, and creative power of self-created vocal sounds called “toning”. We will experience harmonic resonance and heart coherence, bringing balance and clarity, enabling us to be the best expressions of ourselves. We will learn about the sacred vowel sounds and their correspondence to the chakras and glands. We will explore basic principles of sound healing. We will explore silence and harmonic overtones, creating sacred space and sending intentions for the highest good and harmony of all.
“tone”…expresses his whole organization of body, soul, and spirit
as a revelation to the outside as well as to the inside.
The vowel element is the sound playing on this musical instrument.
When producing vowel sounds,
we actually push what lives in the soul out through the body.
~ Rudolph Steiner
Come let your unique voice enrich the diverse harmonic symphony of the universe!

Circle Contributions & Updates
There is a request for $5.00 to be contributed to GTW when attending a circle. The purpose of that is to help with funding for the ongoing outreach of Gather the Women of Nevada County, including films, presentations, and special events.
Many of you are attending more than one circle. Some circles meet more frequently than others. Our request is just that each person give as she is able to joyfully contribute without creating a hardship for herself. No one will ever be denied participation in a Gather the Women of Nevada County event because of lack of funds.
In consideration of others, we request that women honor the No Scent Zone at our circles and events. GTW is not liable or responsible for the content or qualifications of the materials or presenters of the programs listed.
Presently, our link for Paypal donations is inoperative. So sorry for the inconvenience. You can still donate by check. Checks may be made out to GTWNC and mailed to GTWNC, PO Box 87, Cedar Ridge, CA 95924. Thank you.
“Listening, witnessing, role modeling, reacting, deepening, mirroring, laughing, crying, grieving, drawing upon experience, women in circles support each other and discover themselves, through talk.” – Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, The Millionth Circle.
