Caryn MacGrandle (aka Karen Moon) of the divine feminine app
Karen Moon aka Caryn MacGrandle created the divine feminine app seven years ago as a way to bring women (and other genders) together in Circle for growth, healing and empowerment. On a shoestring budget and no official advertising expenditure, the app has registered users each and every day because as Caryn believes, women (all genders really ) are longing to meet this way in smaller gatherings, heart open and balanced with everyone bringing their gifts to the Circle.
Caryn would like to offer you a free three month premium membership on the divine feminine app. Please go to the website and use the promocode ‘parliament‘ for three free months of featured events and full profile access.
