In my early days, as a mother of two lively boys, I quickly realised that everything I thought I knew about raising children didn’t necessarily resonate with who really I was, the hopes I held for family life or even my real-life, day-to-day experience. Thankfully, I discovered Mindful Mamas and the amazing work of Melissa Rowe. Attending her Mindful Parenting workshop was an absolute game changer for my husband and I; bringing insight, understanding and techniques that felt positive in our parenting approach.
As my mothering journey evolved I began to experience the importance of being part of a community of like-minded, open-hearted women who came together without judgement and took time to fill their cup so that they could continue to provide for those they love from a place of strength, joy and abundance. Whilst living in Melbourne the Mindful Mamas circle became a much needed lifeline for me; a bountiful source of friendship and support alongside a wealth of personal insights and wisdom that have guided me through my most challenging and most rewarding experiences of motherhood.
It is now with such deep honour that I hold this space for other women as a Mindful Mama Facilitator in the Ballarat area.
I invite you to join us in circle
Meeting monthly in Ballarat, The Mindful Mamas circle gives you the opportunity to connect with yourself and others on a deeper level.
Take time to nurture yourself, deepening your mindfulness practice, feasting on delicious treats, sipping on herbal tea. Bring your mindful mothering questions to the group in a safe and supportive environment to share, learn and grow together. As one, we put the outside world on hold and create an opportunity for women to come together in a sacred space and sit in stillness. With deep reverence for each other, we connect, reflect and celebrate ourselves and each other.
When women are seen, heard and held in this way we can transform guilt, overwhelm and disconnection and honour all parts of the mothering journey so that you step away from circle feeling empowered and able to be who you need to be in your world. You will make meaningful and lasting connections to other mamas. You will encounter opportunities for reflection, connection, and sharing, and you will feel empowered to offer the best of yourself to your children. Above all, you will create the “village” that all of us mamas truly need. Whether you are looking for information on a specific topic, wanting to gain support, or seeking social connection with other mamas in a welcoming and non-judgmental space, there is something for everyone in the Mindful Mama space.
The monthly Mindful Mamas circle invites mamas of all ages and stages in their mothering journey, and women feeling the need to mother themselves or who are about to embark on their motherhood journey.
