It’s a powerful word.
When I got pregnant for the second time, I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know how my life was going to be able to accommodate a second child, and I feared that I was “too old”.
Of course I soon discovered that my baby was a gift, and a chance to slow down. To appreciate the blossoming of a miracle, and to remember how it feels to fall in love.
I also remembered how tough it is. How tiring.
These are some of the questions I ask myself: How do I deal with overwhelm? How do I keep my yoga practice alive? How do I get the chores done? How do I function on less sleep? Is there anything left for me beyond functionality? Can I find a space where I can be happy or joyful, or achieve, or help others? How can I connect with other spiritual seekers on the maternal path?
The answers are in connection. In breaking apart the power that social expectation has on us and learning to accept what is and grow our concept that what we are doing is deeply, profoundly good. I want to invite you to join me on a day of spiritual retreat, of yoga, sharing and insight, where we will look at motherhood and create a space for it, become it, explore it as a group.
We’ll be creating a picture of motherhood based on how it REALLY looks and feels.
Get a babysitter for some or all of this.
Join me on Saturday 15th June to create space for yourself and:
-Gather your strength through self-care practices
-Connect with spiritual seekers on the maternal path
-Rekindle and reinspire your yoga practice
-Remember what it feels like to relax deeply
