Conscious Motherhood: Bridging the Gap between Theory and Reality
Time & Location
About the Event
We all have he best of intentions as mothers before our children our born. We have an image of what type of mother we will be and what type of children we will have.....and then they are born. We learn very quickly that the way we wished to mother and the way we implement that practice are not always going to be in alignment and slam into feelings of guilt, and not enoughness. The reality is theory is one thing and practice is another and despite popular belief, you are human and you do not have to be 100% on, all of the time.
So if you are feeling the guilt, burn out, overwhelm, and stress of not measuring up as the conscious mama you set out to be, you are in the right place. If you are looking for a night of fun, playful discussion, where you can release some of the guilt and chill out with delicious beverages, snacks and relaxing essential oils, you are in the right place.
Join Jessica Hans-Smolin of Free Your Essence Coaching and Rebecca Centero of Rio Valley Montessori Preschool & Nursery at Hartwick Studios in South Nyack for an evening for the mamas.
