“ Lost and Found “,
on motherhood, loss of identity
and our most beautiful gift
Yes, we become mothers and suddenly our life turns into a dazzling carnival of wonder, of discovery and the beauty of closeness that is unlike any other!
It is also a mystery of sleep deprivation, confusion, feelings of inadequacy, wondering what will come next and peer pressure!
When our babies begin to become little people in their toddlerhood, there comes a whole new list of mysteries and confusions, discoveries, joys and concerns….and we start to feel like that little being has taken over our life, our mind, our self… that motherhood has replaced the person we used to be.
It is challenging and scary to feel these feelings: of loss of “ the old days”, or of our individuality. And it is a tender and heart touching journey raising our children and cultivating closeness with them: our most beautiful gift!
Motherhood is a complex and deep experience and we all go through some levels of loss of self as we immerse ourselves in our children or simply the tasks that we undertake to raise them on a daily basis.
The first year of our childs’ life is most exciting and the biggest time of change for us!
This 4 week workshop will focus on the feelings and experiences of motherhood in the first year, which are at times ecstatic, at times scary, at times tender and deeply fulfilling.
We sometimes can feel a little…. lost….and truly found, in the loving eyes of our little ones.
We’ll share our stories and work on ways to integrate motherhood with the total woman and how to feel in harmony; lifted up by the joys of feeling fully ourselves and mothering our kids!
The group meets once a week for an hour for 4 weeks and we welcome you on this journey! $20 per session
