Green Mommas Coaching Group September 2021 – May 2022
Women with children struggle with the challenge of how to bring Earth-centered values into their daily lives. I hear women tell me this all the time, so I am pleased to offer a Green Mommas Coaching Circle and you are invited!
The purpose of this group is to have a monthly place to share your hopes and dreams for raising children who love The Great Mother and are connected to the Earth.
Together we will explore ways to bring more awareness to your role as an Earth-centered mother and how to help support your family system to live green Earth-centered values.
We will explore the stressors and concerns of the climate crisis. You will learn ways of coping, including the “Active Hope” process as designed by deep ecologist Joanna Macy.
Our Zoom calls will be led and moderated by me, and I will provide for you a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment in which to show up and learn from others on the Green Mother path.
This will be your place to ask questions, listen, learn and grow yourself. Between calls you may connect with others in the group or not. There is no prep to participate and no pressure to do or be anything for this group – except come with an open mind and warm heart. (Women already have enough demands and deadlines!)
This circle will be for the same group of women who commit to the monthly calls and is for women who believe in science, climate change and living healthy. It is for discussing, sharing and learning – it is NOT for debating or convincing others of your point of view.
Group size is limited to 12 mothers of children of all ages.
The goal will be for you to come away feeling more supported, informed and inspired.
This is NOT a therapy group but may include open sharing and powerful feelings (which may include tears).
If interested email me ASAP to secure your spot: email@example.com
I will connect with you to answer your questions and together we will assess if the group is a good fit for you!
The total fee is $50 for the 10 monthly of calls plus access to the moderated private Facebook page where we will share information and resources (optional). If you are unable to pay the $50 please let me know. This program is being underwritten through my not-for-profit women’s organization HealthyWomenHealthyEarth.org , thus my ability to invite you at this low cost.
We meet the third Sunday of each month by zoom starting Sunday Sept 19th at 5:30 pm MST (adjust for your time zone) September through May 2022
Note that in October the date will be changed to Sunday, October 24th at 5:30 MST (yes, everything changes). The remaining calls will be the 3rd Sunday (unless a change arises but I’ll try to keep to the schedule).
NOTE: If you cannot secure care for your child(ren) at this time, hen this may not be the right time for you to join us. But I do hope you will consider this one hour a month that is JUST FOR YOU.
