Moon Mamas ♦ A circle specifically for mothers with young children (from birth until mobile).
When we birth and become immersed in a young child’s life, we often feel little room to continue our spiritual practices outside the home with a little one latched on. This circle is designed to support mothers who wish to deepen their connection with the Divine Feminine, who enjoy self exploration in a women’s circle, and/or who simply want to connect with other mothers in the community.
Moon Mama circles take the form of an interactive sharing circle, where mothers are able to express what blessings and challenges may be arising in their transition from independence to mothering, as well as creating a space that is safe and welcoming for their babies. We will include elements of connection to our children as they are so much of our current world. We will also explore what it means to be a mother of a little one who needs so much of us at this time. What is the balance of mothering and self? How do we maintian something of ourselves when it feels like we are being consumed! A support group, a play group, a curious group, whatever you are seeking you can bring your questions here!
Starting March 8, 2018 – Moon Mamas will Ignite! We will gather the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 – 8pm at The House of Now.
While regular attendance helps to create connection, we also know life can be hectic! That is why we offer a 8 class pass to any 8 circles for the cost of $85. Drop in fee for Moon Mamas is $13/circle (for mom and babe).
IN HONOR OF INTERNATIONALL WOMEN’S DAY OUR FIRST MOON MAMAS CIRCLE WILL BE BY DONATION! COME SEE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!
In circle we honor the sacredness of ceremony. We listen from our hearts and not with judgment. We try to anchor into our deepest selves to speak from our truth and not from a reactive state. We give our attention to the speaker, we speak only during our turn, and we hold space for each other to be where we are and feeling what we are feeling. We do not offer advice, we are a pool of listening.
All circles are completely CONFIDENTIAL. Nothing that is brought up in circle is allowed to be discussed ouside of circle unless you ask for permission from that person.
For those new to women’s circles, here is a loose outline that the Moon Mamas Circles will follow!!
We gather in circle, taking the first few minutes to settle our children onto blankets/yoga matts, and ourselves into a comfortable position.
We begin circle by going around, saying our names, and perhaps our intention of gathering in the group, or just how we are today. We will also introduce our children.
We create a safe container for our words.
The facilitator will then introduce a topic, and we will be able to share our feelings, perpectives, and questions. In a group dynamic we will all have a chance to speak and be heard, but no one is expected to speak if they prefer to listen. Topics are chosen prior to the circle, and will be posted below. Requests are always welcome!! And even if a topic is posted, conversations often veer into what is needed
We will then spend some time connecting with our little one!
We end with a closing circle where we go around the circle and speak either our gratitude, or something that has been brought up during the session that we will take home to reflect on.
March 8th, 2018 – International women’s day!!
