Information on Feathering the Nest

To achieve optimal wellness, one must apply it towards every possible endeavor, including parenting, which is a complex mixture of arduous and uplifting. Adding spirituality and intention to your parenting is a rewarding way to connect with your children as well as staying centered during the inevitable challenges.  The event offerings below are my attempt to add depth to familial relationships, connect children with their intuition and mindfulness, and support caregivers on this incredible journey of parenting.

 

WILD Family Circle:

 

Upcoming Dates:

July 11th, 12-130pm Central (In-person)

 

Join us to cultivate your wild-child(ren) and family. During this shared experience we will incorporate meditation, intention setting, ritual, and ceremony plus child-led yoga to nurture bonding & connection to deepen your family relationship.

 

Our wild family circle events are back and live!! Join us in-person to cultivate your wild-child(ren) and family.

The WILD Family Circles follow a similar monthly theme as the WILD Woman Project Circles but are shortened and adapted to include all genders of children and caregivers.

Please bring the following, if you have them available: Journal and writing utensil, yoga mat, a pillow or cushion to sit comfortably on the floor for meditation, container and implements for harvesting from the food forest garden (this will also serve as a volunteer opportunity for the garden), and water/snacks as needed for your family.

Wild Girl Circle:
Upcoming dates, TBD, Covid-19 depending.

Open to all womxn, this circle will be a free-er flowing circle space for the girls in our lives to discuss what it means to be a girl, the transition to womanhood, questions they have, or support that they might need. There will not be a set theme or ritual, but discussion of these topics (ex. how to use ritual and nature to support transitions) are welcome. This circle will not be offering medical advice but will be a space to facilitate conversation and support each other in exploration of the topics. Their adult womxn are welcome and encouraged to attend. For more details and registration, please see: www.theresiliencyinstitute.net/learn/learn-classes/
