Now more than ever, as women, we need safe space to access our feelings and be validated. To dive deep into the beauty, power, truth and wisdom that is at the heart of these feelings – what are these feelings here to teach us? – and to ground ourselves without shaming ourselves. Covering themed topics we will explore and honor everything from the anxiety ridden chaos of just getting out of the house in the morning to the cultural climate around current American and Global politics.
Everything we need, including the answers to whatever we are struggling with, are found inside of ourselves. Take a minute to be still and let yourself connect with the vital energy and wisdom you are.Using tools from meditation to shakespeare and everything in between we will create a sacred container for these thoughts and feelings. Bring your blood, bring your fire, bring everything you are.
Seasonal Community Mother Blessing
A ritual that marks a woman’s transition to motherhood- women only (so a great way to meet other pregnant mamas) and will consist of a meditation, crafts, intention setting and practical discussion about what is ahead. We feel like it is the perfect event to marry the excitement and mysticism of pregnancy with the foresight and grounded understanding needed for a happy postpartum. Feel free to bring your sister, mom, or bestie (or all 3!) to take part with you.
