The Well Project combines ritual, wellness, and feminism to bring together a “tribe of like minded sister queens” for their monthly Well Circles, spiritual Rosh Chodesh gatherings where women can restore connections to one another, their own bodies, and their spiritual practices. While not exclusively menstruation-themed, the Circles focus on physical and mental wellbeing, as it relates to moon cycles and Jewish feminist ritual (for those who do menstruate).
