Mama Nurture Circle (for moms w/babies)

  • The Hive 205 Northwest Franklin Avenue Bend, OR, 97701 United States (map)

Mama Nurture Circle is a bi weekly circle that meets ongoing from 10-12 pm in The Tree house at The Hive. This circle is open to moms with babies 1 and under. Babies are welcome to join mama in circle.
This circle is part open processing (as in each person gets to choose what she wants to share with the group), and guided discussion.
Weekly format roughly looks like a check in, short meditation to clear our mind and ground our body into the present, then we explore different topics from relationships to self-care and everything in between through discussion. Topics are chosen based on the what is most relevant to the group.
Who
This is a circle for mothers in the beginning stage of parenting who are looking to gain a deeper connection to their self as well as other women. This group is especially helpful for moms who are ready to do some internal/emotional healing and discover who she is after becoming a mom. It's about coming home to the woman she is, not the woman she was.
Why
For many women, after becoming a mom her life is devoted to her child. In this devotion there are parts of herself she loses. For others, raising a child triggers all the parts of herself that were rejected as a child and she loses herself to the pain and rage she is dealing with. Some women are so convinced that there is a "right" way to parent and are so stuck in controlling the environment around her in order to protect her child that she begins to suffer great anxiety. The struggles vary, but what is clear for most is that there is a sense of self that is lost. For many women, joining a circle of women who are really open and vulnerable can be healing, nurturing and helps women rediscover herself.
This offering fosters deep connection, vulnerability, truth, and awareness. For some it's the first radical step towards self care that can create the much needed change one is looking for.

What does a circle look like?
When in circle we put our attention on one woman to explore what her experience is like, essentially getting into deep relationship with what is most true and alive for her.
The experience of being seen for who we are is one of the most fulfilling experiences we can have. Being in circle teaches us exactly that­, how to see and celebrate each woman for the uniqueness she brings to the world.
We don’t give advice or try to fix anyone. Rather, we welcome and stay with what is so we can relax into the truth of our experience, feel supported, know we are not alone and allow the experience of this to change us.

Circle Dates: November 2nd, 16th, and 30th and finishes on December 14th.
