The Ritual

Sacred Full Moon Gatherings

The Practice Ritual is a returning home. It is a cathartic experience of ritual and connection; a blend of feminine spirituality, self-devotion, and a deep sense of sisterhood. These intimate gatherings are offered once a month in West Linn, Oregon.

If you are a soulful woman who desires connection, community, and sacred time to yourself, then welcome home.

Women have been gathering in sacred circles for thousands of years. It's in our blood to gather in sacred practice and remember our truth and inner power. Unfortunately the culture we live and the systems built around us have taken us away from each other and disconnected us from our truth. The Practice Ritual is a returning to our roots as women and as leaders in our community.

what to expect...

A safe space to retreat from the busyness of everyday life. 

Deep conversations and space to honor all that you are and all that you hold.

Journaling, meditation, peace, and grace.

Stillness, acceptance, patience, and beauty. A space to unravel and heal.

We've been through a lot these past couple of years. We have been isolated from each other, and in that isolation there has been grief, pain, and loss. The Practice Ritual is a time to come back together as women and build a safe community where we can heal our wounds and find solace with each other in this uncertain time.

you're in the right place.

Hi, I'm Michelle Long, Ma

I'm gathering an authentic community of women.

I've been teaching yoga for 20 years, and I owned a women's healing center in California for a decade.  Along the way I learned what women really want and need. We want connection. We want community. We want a safe place to unravel and just be who we truly are. We struggle to find authentic friendships and people who "get" us. We all want to be seen and heard. The Practice brings us together in a sacred way, where can finally take a deep breath, hear our own voice, and connect in the way we truly desire. I'm excited to offer The Practice in West Linn and to build a sacred community of women here.
