Mothers are the frequency holders of the household. As the common phrase says, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”

In this self-care immersion, mothers of all ages and stages — new moms, single mothers, empty nesters, and those who are ready to become mothers — come together to explore the sacred path of motherhood. Yoga, dance, and ceremonial self-care provide sensual and centering practices that help clear and revitalize energy. Therapeutic journaling and wisdom circles help participants identify what truly matters. Ritual, prayer, and adornment provide ways to weave beauty into each day. A meditation practice is encouraged for stress reduction and emotional wellbeing.

This journey includes contemplative and experiential circles exploring:

  • Motherhood as a spiritual path
  • Self-care and wellbeing rituals
  • “Mom Guilt” and self-compassion
  • Mindfulness in daily life
  • The pelvis as a woman’s center of power and creativity
  • Familial and personal values related to life, parenting, and house-holding
  • Setting and resetting the tone, energy, and frequency of your heart and home

You will leave feeling seen and energized, and with a clear strategy for infusing your discoveries into your home life.

Included in your registration is a self-care list, habit tracker, and community connection via a dedicated WhatsApp group.

Continuing education for this course is available through the leader.
