How To Have Your Own Goddess Circle Like Jennifer Aniston

Everyone can benefit from getting in touch with their inner goddess - even celebs like Jennifer Aniston. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Aniston revealed that for the past 30 years, she’s been participating in goddess circle rituals with her closest female friends. Talk about a long lasting sisterhood! At each gathering, the ladies sit in a circle and pass around a talking stick as they reflect on their future, past, and present.

“They had circled before Aniston’s weddings to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux,” the Times shared of the goddess circles. “They circled when babies were born, and when Aniston and Theroux had to put down their dog, Dolly. This time they set the circle’s intention: to celebrate how far they’ve come — and to toast Aniston’s next chapter.”

Want to bring goddess circles in to your own life? Here are a few things to keep in mind for your gatherings.

Create a cozy, welcoming space

Create a cozy, welcoming space.


In Aniston’s circles, she and her friends sit cross-legged on comfy cushions on the living room floor. When creating your own circle, think about how you can create a feeling of a sacred and secure space. Comfy seating, soft lighting, and a warm atmosphere will help members feel supported.

Make sure everyone feels safe to speak their truth.

Just like Jen and her pals pass around a talking stick, you’ll want to share some kind of talisman that indicates when it is each person’s turn to talk. Each member should feel free to share her experiences out loud without any judgment or fear. Consider making a rule that what’s said in the circle stays in the circle. Ditching your phones for the night is also a good move so that each participant can be a more present listener.

Mark the event with opening and closing ceremonies.

What the ceremonies might look like is up to you. You can burn sage, place crystals in the center of the circle, meditate, say affirmations, light candles, or even dance together. What matters is that you choose an activity that signifies the beginning and ending of your circle, and that the activity feels right to you as a group.

Tailor your circle to your group’s wants and needs.

Your rituals belong to you and your fellow goddesses, and there is no right or wrong way to conduct your circle. Some circles prefer to do the same rituals each time they gather, while others prefer to tweak their habits based on what’s going on in members’ lives or the phases of the moon. You can focus on gratitude, goal-setting, carrying each other through tough times, or any other motivation - it’s all up to you.

Celebrate each other.

Celebrate each other.


At the end of the day, your goddess circle is all about celebrating and lifting each other up. Life is fast moving and ever-changing, but your goddess circle can serve as the one constant that keeps you rooted in your goals, dreams, and friendships. When good-hearted women come together, anything is possible.


Take a cue from Jen and gather your closest friends. You never know - your goddess circle just might change your life.
