Sometimes, mothering is joyous and abundant; other times, it is filled with sacrifice and loss. In this six-session series, we will explore the power of mothering physically and spiritually, drawing wisdom and insight from ancient and contemporary texts. We will unpack “motherhood” and explore the ways that mothering intersects with gender, caregiving and the body. We will discuss and reflect together, and have time each session for creative expression through art and or writing. This session is for mothers at all stages of life. No prior art or creative writing experience is necessary.
