Although the joy and rewards of motherhood can be abundant, it can also be very challenging. It takes a village to raise a child yet too often in today’s world we can find ourselves alone. Not only is there the demand to be the perfect mother raising the perfect child, there are also the demands to maintain the family system, have a good career and look great! All of this without breaking a sweat. The illusions of perfectionism that are put on women and/or bought into can add an incredible amount of stress. This stress can wreak havoc on the mind-body-spirit and leak into the family system.
What are the images that you hold about women and motherhood?
Are they true?
Where did they come from?
What was your relationship like with your mother and now?
And your own children?
Please join us on Saturday, May 9th at 10am to 12pm at my office in Ardmore as we celebrate all women and motherhood. You can be new, a veteran or a mother-to-be. Daughters who want to honor their mothers or who helped mother other siblings too. All are welcome no matter the dynamic. We want to honor this sacred community.
