Are you really doing what you dreamed of doing or even like to do? Take a hard look at your current situation and how you’re current professional status and career track complement, or conflict with, your life as a mother.

This workshop is designed for the woman who is not yet married and not yet a mother but can’t help wonder about how it is all supposed to fit and where she will ultimately end up once she crosses that bridge. A look out over the horizon allows for pride in her accomplishments but there is skepticism about how her personal life will take shape and be “easily” integrated with her pursuits as an individual. Talk to other women who are experiencing the same crossroad in their lives and get the support needed to help make the right decision for you.
Your partner is invited in to gain a new perspective of you and your relationship, as well as the changes you will both experience as you parent your child and continue to grow your careers. You’ll learn how to develop the necessary boundaries to care for yourself, your partnership, and the parenting unit you're now part of. How this challenge spillovers into your workday is an important question that is addressed.
Are work, family and friends adding joy or creating challenges in your life? Do you feel like dropping off your entire family including the in-laws and the boss at the airport hoping they might never return?

This is a wonderful workshop to learn how to take charge in a positive way and add bliss rather than feeling diss’d.

Join in a gentle shared meditation within a supportive group environment where women set intentions for themselves and how to make that a reality throughout the day. This program requires some gentle physical activity.
