February 16th Mom’s Morning Retreat Meeting

Is your head still spinning from our last meeting? We hope you’ve been able to process (or discard, if it didn’t work for you!) some of the information Bev shared. This week we’ll move on to discuss practical tools for tuning up your relationships from a position of authenticity.

Mom’s Full-Day Retreat on Saturday, March 17th, 9am-4pm
We’re so excited! Our full-day, moms’ getaway is taking shape! Come on Saturday, March 17th to explore the topic of Mindfulness with Bev. The retreat will take place at a beautiful, intimate waterfront property in Indianola, where we will have a chance to use the natural setting to discuss and implement a variety of mindfulness practices. Not only will you be able to try out many different techniques during the retreat, you will also leave with tools you can apply in your daily life. A $50 fee includes drinks, snacks, a nourishing lunch and all activities. Stay afterwards for a free wine and cheese reception, too! Registration forms will be available at this week’s meeting (and we’ll email them out in case you aren’t able to attend the meeting) and will be due, with payment, no later than March 1st. You may hand them in at the March 1st meeting or mail forms and payment to Mom’s Morning Retreat, c/o Bev Gaines, 945 Hildebrand Lane, Suite 210, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110. We have a limited number of slots, so get your form in asap.

March 1st Meeting, An Activity Day with Journals
On March 1st, Michelle will lead an activity designed to help you rediscover your authentic self. In preparation, please gather old magazines, catalogs, quotes, postcards, or images that speak to you and bring them to the meeting (along with a pair of scissors). If you have a stack of magazines or catalogs you’d be willing to donate for the group’s use, great! We’ll provide a book to use and the supplies you need to get started. It will be fun to watch how the collages evolve during the meeting. If you forget or didn’t have time or don’t have any magazines, no problem. Just show up and we’ll have everything you need!
