All of us have mothers in our lives, whether by blood or by relationship. Who has been a mother to you in your formative years? What lasting gifts have they given you? And how do you mother yourself and others now? No matter how we identify on the gender spectrum, we all need and can offer the care and protection that are at the very core of being a mother.

This workshop will delve into our perception of mothering and how we all are shaped by the mothers around us, as well as look at how we care for ourselves. Through a series of artistic exercises, small group discussion and full group sharing, we will pay homage to those special people who have shown us how to live here on earth.

Each workshop on Zoom includes small group exercises and reflections shared in the full group. We will use artistic and imaginative exercises to open up biographical experiences. And, as always, we will practice listening deeply.

Our monthly workshops are not recorded to respect the confidentiality of our participants. The cost for for our public workshops is on a sliding scale from $25.00 to $100.00. You will receive a Zoom link a day prior to the workshop.
