Holy Mama , A workshop to support, honor and inspire the Inner Life of Mothers

What is wisdom? Wisdom is seeing the whole in the parts,and in the whole seeing the holy.
Sufi Teaching

What is the wisdom that mothering offers us as women?
What are the parts? -The parts we can not see, the parts we do not want to see, and the parts that are strong and reflect our deepest essence.
How do we develop the capacities to see and be our whole self, our holy self?
A holy mama is a woman aware that mothering is an initiation into wholeness. Meeting, accepting and learning to work with all the parts of our self we meet in mothering--we become heathy, whole, holy.
In this three hour workshop we will touch many of the parts of ourselves we meet in mothering,each woman in the circle reflecting something in us that has fallen asleep, remains hidden, needs understanding or longs to be born. We will weave together group process, meditation an artisitc activity. Within the safety and nurturing space of a group of women, medicine flows, and we initiate each other into a deeper, fuller, stronger understanding of our self.

The workshop is led by Jerilyn Brownstein, MSW, who has been working with the "inner life" of mothers for the past fifteen years--supporting women in growing themselves while they grow their families.
