Imagine a circle of mothers and babies in your community
... being cared for and appreciated by other women
... cultivating your unique art of mothering
... creating a network of support and friendship
... learning the secrets of self-care from the wise women in your community
... in the midst of a joyful gathering with your babies
This is Mothering Arts.
Mothering Arts is a place to Connect with yourself, with your baby and with your community.
For 6 years our inter-generational gathering have been a place where we bring local resources to you, all with one thing in common:nurturing the postpartum journey.
This winter, our 10 week series invites the theme of nurturing to support you on your unique path of mothering, for mothering is truly an art.
What to expect:
- You will learn songs and games to connect deeply using the language of childhood.
- Learn simple nurturing practices to add to your day that will keep you grounded and nourished.
- Meet local wisdom keepers offering resources and practical tools focused on uplifting the postpartum journey.
- Share the unseen work of mothering in a nurturing space of support, acknowledgement and friendship which blossoms long after our group ends
* If you are pregnant and interested in joining once your baby is in arms, you are welcome to visit.
