Our Facilitator

Meet our facilitator and mentor, Bev Gaines. A woman who has been committed to supporting moms on Bainbridge Island for more than two decades and started Mom’s Morning Retreat.

Bev Gaines

The inspiration for our 2017-18 program is:

Love and Joy: the abundance of them within each of us and shared among us, the elusiveness both can have in our daily lives, and the power we have to generate and bring forth each as a tribe of supportive, curious and strong moms.


We are thrilled to have Bev Gaines facilitating us and leading us in insightful discussion. Bev is a Life Coach and Spiritual Director,  experienced mother of two and grandmother of five.

Bev leads meditation workshops and retreats, drawing from the Enneagram, journaling, and other contemplative practices to help those on the path of discovery and transformation. She is also a Wedding Officiant. She also meets with people one-on-one in her private practice, Soul Wisdom, on Bainbridge Island.  She is a member of Grace Episcopal Church and mentored the Mothers Nurturing Mothers (MNMs) group at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church for 14 years.
