Rise By Ritual, A Women’s Circle With Gabrielle Blachley & Fallon Lev
February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
For centuries women have gathered to create space for connection, support, and empowerment. These gatherings, often known as women’s circles, provide a safe sacred environment for women to explore their inner world without judgment.
Women’s circles fulfill a primal desire for ritualized spaces where women can connect to other powerful women. Shoulder to shoulder, heart to heart. A space for deep healing, connection, and togetherness. Raw and unafraid, women of all walks of life, join to share their life experiences, fears, wildest dreams, and innermost desires, building a sense of true belonging and community. Rise by Ritual seeks to provide just that, a ritualized space for women to gather, connect, and feel supported, heard, and empowered.
Each month we will gather to draw inspiration from different cultures and traditions, spiritual practices, social issues, or personal beliefs to design rituals that resonate and inspire. The structure of each gathering includes rituals such as guided meditations, journaling/writing, sharing circles, expressive instinctual or guided movement exploration, and creative sacred, intimate ceremonies.
The intention of these circles is to foster a sense of sisterhood, community, empowerment, and personal growth…allowing women to open-mindedly and more vulnerably and courageously explore their identities, deepen their self-awareness, express themselves freely, and fearlessly discuss topics that are relevant to their lives. By participating in these circles, women can build connections, gain insights, and find strength and peace through the collective wisdom of the group.
The Collective Theme of Rise by Ritual: Softening into vulnerability and leaning into fearless courage.
These circles will be guided and held by your co-leads Gabrielle Blachley and Fallon Lev. It is our dharma and life work to hold safe space and offer constructive healing tools, helping people on their healing journey to be consistent with their commitment, to find clarity reconnecting to their intuitive knowing, and to begin to or continue to build the bridge from what is no longer working in their lives to what is and ultimately what will set them free, so they can keep moving forward on their path to a happier, healthier more fulfilled life!
How Circle Space Is Held
The synergy of our facilitators is what creates such a special, safe, and sacred space – allowing you to show up as you are, and whatever needs to be seen and heard will be seen and heard. The synergy of our different life experiences and paths lies in the shared and collective vision of reconnecting women to their bodies, strength, inner wisdom, and intuitive guidance so they may navigate their lives with a newfound sense of inner freedom and authentic embodiment, fully rebirthed.
Each circle is a new offering with a theme that changes and builds upon itself. We lead with a complete flow of feminity – giving you something to look forward to each month. We encourage you to keep coming. You are welcome to join this monthly journey at any point… for you will receive value either way. It’s important to keep coming to these circles to make a true shift in your life through intention, consistency, and manifestation.

Why a “Women’s Circle” Gabrielle?!? A lil’ back story…
Over the past several years of living in San Diego life has challenged me to reach beyond my inner resources of healing and to seek guidance and healing tools from therapists and healers. At the beginning of COVID, I was diagnosed with PTSD and Anxiety Disorder, which I had been suffering from undiagnosed for many years due to life circumstances, choices, and relationship/life stress. This knowledge changed my life, sending me on a journey to find tools to understand myself better and eventually, continue this process on my own, empowering me to accept the things I cannot change, giving me the courage and capacity to change the things I can.
One of the things I admired most about my Mother, was her ability to bring together women from all walks of life, sometimes the most unlikely of combinations, making the best of friendships. I witnessed for years the power of her woman tribe. For those of you who aren’t familiar, my Mother is one of my most beloved life mentors. She was a professional ballerina and owned ballet schools for 40 years. Regularly she would have her students (who became lifelong friends, some she mentored, some mentored her) over to our home for late-night dinner parties, tea-time talks, and so on. All of these women from the time I was a baby, weaved their colors, strengths, and stories into our lives. It wasn’t till I was much older that I realized the role my mother played in all of these women’s lives and how she brought people together, by offering and creating a sacred space for them to come, to show up when they needed, just as they were. There was never any judgment, just a sacred space for them to discover and realize what it was they were seeking. My vision and hope for this circle is to do the same, to carry the torch my Mother kept lit, illuminating women’s strengths, inspiring and encouraging them to carry on… into the light of their magnificence, truly believing they can create the life they dreamed of living.
