Additional Information on Feathering the Nest

To achieve optimal wellness, one must apply it towards every possible endeavor, including parenting, which is a complex mixture of arduous and uplifting. Adding spirituality and intention to your parenting is a rewarding way to connect with your children as well as staying centered during the inevitable challenges.  The event offerings below are my attempt to add depth to familial relationships, connect children with their intuition and mindfulness, and support caregivers on this incredible journey of parenting.

 

WILD Family Circle:

 

Upcoming Dates:

June 21st 11am-1230pm

July 19th 11am-1230pm

 

Join us to cultivate your wild-child(ren) and family. During this shared experience we will incorporate meditation, intention setting, ritual, and ceremony plus child-led yoga to nurture bonding & connection to deepen your family relationship.

 

The WILD Family Circles follow a similar monthly theme as the WILD Woman Project Circles but are shortened and adapted to include all genders of children and caregivers.

 

Please bring the following, if you have them available:  Journal and writing utensil, yoga mat, a pillow or cushion to sit comfortably on the floor for meditation, and inside shoes or slippers. You may also bring an item for the altar.

 

Recommended ages are 6 years old up to younger teen. Open to 16 participants.

 

Cost is $30/caregiver-child pair, $10/each for additional children (note that cost will be reduced if circles meet virtually secondary to COVID-19). Pre-registration online is required at http://www.theresiliencyinstitute.net/learn/learn-classes/

 

Location: The Resiliency Institute:  Clow Education Center, McDonald Farm 10S404 Knoch Knolls Rd, Naperville, IL 60565

WILD Mother*-Daughter Events:

 

Our WILD mother (female caregiver)-daughter circles have been open to all genders.  However, specific mother-daughter events will be offered in 2020, including:

 

Wild Girl Circle: Join us on 5/23 via zoom from 2-330pm. Open to all womxn, this circle will be a free-er flowing circle space for the girls in our lives to discuss what it means to be a girl, the transition to womanhood, questions they have, or support that they might need. There will not be a set theme or ritual, but discussion of these topics (ex. how to use ritual and nature to support transitions) are welcome. This circle will not be offering medical advice but will be a space to facilitate conversation and support each other in exploration of the topics. Their adult womxn are welcome and encouraged to attend. For more details and registration, please see: www.theresiliencyinstitute.net/learn/learn-classes/

 

Cost is $10/pair of attendees from the same household, $5/additional individual.
