MOVEMENT. CONNECTION. STORY. SONG. STILLNESS
This retreat is for mothers of all ages and stages looking to fill their cup with self-connection, community-building, and normalizing the challenges of motherhood. It is for women who long to feel witnessed and validated, find companionship and kinship, and process our lives using timeless ways of healing.
Join us in reimagining a “ReVillaged” and nourishing version of Motherhood (with wholeness as our goal, vs. happiness or perfection)
You’ll love this retreat especially if you want:
To have a whole day (or more!) of not being needed, clean up after no-one (besides yourself), and self-reflect.
Sensitive and skilled yoga instruction and embodiment practices (that encourage self-compassion and real-ness vs. spiritually bypassing).
Contemplative nature-connection and time to "just be".
To feel like your grief and depth are just as welcome as your joy
To deconstruct Modern Motherhood, dream into a “ReVillaged” version, and contemplate (together) the practical steps to get there.
To reflect on the what the “meat and potatoes” of female friendships is to you, and find (or create) your wider mothering village.
To take a little pressure off your partner or friends to meet ALL your needs for feeling seen, felt, and understood.
Enjoy deep quiet and joyful laughter with other Soulful Mommas.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Modern Motherhood can leave women struggling with everything from social isolation, mood-disorders, and health challenges …to simply dealing with the near-constant ache for a more organic and effortless village for themselves and their families.
Through Movement, Sharing Circles, Stillness, Nature-Connection, and Song, these retreats will explore some of the qualities, mindsets, and tools you can use in your journey of “ReVillaging” (finding or building the support, community, friendships, and connections you dream of).
