Blossom & Bee, Mama and Me Circle

“Within each child lies the seed and desire of potentiality, love is what nourishes the seed to blossom.” 

“There are two gifts we should give our children, one is roots, the other, wings.” 

Blossom and Bee is a series of 4 (2-hour) gatherings, inviting holistically-minded mamas in their 3rd trimester and mama/baby pairs ( 6 weeks-slow movers) into a supportive environment inspired by https://communitysupportedpostpartum.com/. Our mission is to “nurture the nurturer”, through revolutionary community wellness, inspiring revitalized ways of living and to cherish the heART of motherhood.

Maternal health is foundational to societal health.

There is a metamorphosis that takes place as we go through the portal to become a Mother, a time known as matrecence.  Embracing the concept of “re-villaging,” we aim to elevate and enrich our community and culture at large, by being the antidote to exhausted, overworked, overwhelmed, isolated/lonely caregivers. Caregivers are the most undervalued people in the world.

We treat our sacred time together like a ceremony, honoring our physiologic, psychologic and spiritual needs. Collectively, we can shift our cultural norm, remembering the importance of protecting and preserving the sanctity of our parenting journey and early childhood, where infants and mothers are met with dignity and respect. Babies are not only welcomed but encouraged. There are not many spaces in AVL where this is true. We discuss Mama-centered content but always baby-led focus.

10-10:30- Ground and Root- settle in, enjoy a warm herbal infusion and snack.

10:30- Welcome, gratitude, acknowledgment, check-in.

11:00- Songs and games, followed by quite observation of the babies. Mama is fed a warm, nourishing meal and nurturing from the facilitators.

11:30- Topic of the week and open share.

12:00- 12:30- Space to connect ask questions.

12:30- Assistance packing up, session end.

You will be nurtured and nourished during your time here and will leave feeling a deeper sense of peace, connection, insight and hope. You will receive a traditionally prepared, nutrient dense meal, warm infusions, and elixirs. We weave together ancestral wisdom from global traditions with modern applications that are practical, tangible, simple and inexpensive. We will discuss how this traditional wisdom correlates to evidence based-science. Each session you may receive loving touch, meditative techniques or frequency healing.  We encourage the use of health-promoting tools, available for group-self care. Each week there will be demonstrations on embodiment practices to help soothe our nervous systems and techniques to help us become more present, patient and playful. I send out inspirations each week with additional (optional) resources.

This is an opportunity for those longing for meaningful connections in order to create a sisterhood, a union, a care-team. Creating a series is intentional so that we can create deeper bonds. Your sharing/contributions will impact us collectively. We honor your story, voice, experiences, questions and concerns. Postpartum depletion/dis-ease/disappointment is an epidemic in our country. We all know healers and resources in our city that we will recommend to each other. It takes a village and that is why this is COMMUNITY SUPPORTED postpartum care. The health and vitality of the MOTHER equals the health of all of our future generations.

May this offering be a catalyst for change in our community and spread this vision far beyond our ceremonial circle. We will plant SEEDS of LOVE for a metamorphosis.

Rooted in Love, Bee-coming the Blossom
