Rejuvenation for Moms

Often as mothers, we do and do for our families.  We can feel that we are on the cusp of burn-out.  In honor of Mother's Day, this interactive workshop offers participants the opportunity to step away from day-to-day motherhood and examine three key questions:

1.  How am I experiencing motherhood at this time in my life?

2.  What are my favorite parts of being a Mom, when I am being my "real" self?

3.  How can I grow those, with help from others?
"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change others.  Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."    - Rumi                                                                                                                            

Our speaker, Sheila Martel, is the mother of two "launched" daughters.  She lives motherhood as a spiritual journey, noting that primary relationships are where we teach and learn many of life's most meaningful lessons.  A producer, writer and mentor, Sheila holds three degrees in sociology, women's studies and education.
