What would be a good reading, poem or ritual for a women's group?

Friends are starting a women's group and are looking for a ritual or a reading as a way to begin each meeting. It's a group that includes their teenage daughters so it needs to appeal to both. Any ideas?

It's for a group that is meeting to share advice, stories, experiences and they want a way to open the group. They were talking about a poem or a reading but I suppose it can be any sort of ritual. The idea of silence/meditation was already suggested but they still want a reading or something to do. I've searched for poems about women, circles, nature, but I'm not finding anything good. I've found some things from New Moon gatherings and wiccan rituals but they're not right. Here are the parameters:
* It would be something that they would say or do each time (not a different poem each time)
* Non-religious, not related to 12 step programs
* No burning things (candles, sage, etc)
Any ideas for a poem, saying, reading, or something to do? Thanks!
