ONLINE 5-DAY LIVE RETREAT
May 5th - 9th, 2022
Medicine for the Modern Mother is for women in the first years of motherhood, nursing and abundantly nourishing their children in their earliest years.
We cant deny that the desire to give will never end, yet we find ourselves at moments reaching for the pause or time out button because we have no reserves to pull from anymore.
This is your 5 day reserve tank top up.
For you to be the best version of yourself, firstly as an independent, loving, caring and confident embodied woman - and secondly, as the adoring mother that you are.
This retreat is for you if you are:
- Craving an understanding sisterhood. - Tools to release the baby brain and tap into the intuitive, innate wild woman within
- Reset your system with dance, rest, yoga, meditation, nourishing foods, embodied practices, guided journalling moon and menstrual wisdom.
This retreat is ancient wisdom medicine for the modern, overworked, overtired, overstimulated modern mother.
