A group of more than 100 women from across the North met on a beach to ‘laugh, swim and cry’ as part of a ritual to mark the Full Moon.
The crowd of 107 went to a “beautiful spot” on Formby Beach on England’s West Coast to celebrate the Full Moon as part of a ‘Moon Goddess Gathering’ event, which are organised for women to meet on the sand before the sunset.
The idea is it is a “sacred space for all those with goddess energy to gather and celebrate the fulfilling spirit of the moon”.

At the events, women ‘perform a full moon ritual’, go wild swimming and do some meditation, the Liverpool ECHO reports.
There was also a ‘moon celebration’ and ‘moon tea’.
One of the group’s members Karlee Matthews said: “We met up last month for a Full Moon Ritual. There was 107 women who sat together from all over the north west!
“We laughed, we cried and we went for a dip.

“Formby is a truly beautiful spot.”
Karlee says the women went “to get together, but also for themselves”.
She continued: “Everyone left with new friends, and everyone loved it.”
Another group member, who went on the night, said she “loved every minute” and that “empowering would be an understatement”.
A second wrote: “Thank you. I met so many wonderful people and I can’t wait to do it again.”
Another event is planned for the Full Moon later this month.
