Most people celebrate a significant birthday with a big party or an intimate dinner with friends and family, but Jennifer Aniston – who turned 50 this year – found a slightly more unusual way to mark the major milestone.
The Friends actress apparently rounded up her pals and flew them out to attend a ‘goddess circle’ in Mexico, as a way to bless the next new chapter of her life.
In an interview with the New York Times, Aniston revealed she and her friends have been honouring the tradition for the past three decades, as a way to celebrate each other’s major life events, including Aniston’s weddings to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.
“I’m entering into what I feel is one of the most creatively fulfilling periods of my life,” she told the publication. “Seriously, I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I feel like it’s just about to really bloom.”
Each circle is individual in its format, but it’s likely there will be releasing rituals to take part in, like writing down the things you’d like to let go of.
The group can take turns reading them out to each other, before burning them as a way to release negativity.
Circles can also involve guided meditation practices, exercises for setting intentions or oracle card readings.
If you’re interested in giving the trend a go goddessfoundation.org.uk is a good resource for finding local circles in the UK – or setting one up yourself.
If it’s good enough for uber successful Aniston, it’s good enough for us.
