TRIBE. A Moms' Retreat

Date: October 19th – October 21st

Time: 3:00 PM on Friday to 11:00 AM on Sunday

Location: The Reserve at Augusta

Tribe. A Retreat for Moms.
  • You’re craving a village…more and better connections. 
  • You’re not sure if you’re feeling all this right…or enough. 
  • You’re doing more than any one person should and simultaneously feeling guilt and shame about not doing more. 
  • You’re probably beating yourself up for not smiling more, not being more positive, and not feeling more blessed. 

And maybe you’re a little weird…and you used to be a lot more fun. Mama, fast-forward 30ish years… what would you want for your daughter if she were in this exact same circumstance, feeling exactly the way you’re feeling? How would you nurture her? How would you help her? What would you say to her?

Shhhhh… it’s the best kept parenting secret: the only way to be the kind of mother you want to be is to give all of that stuff you think great mothers give to you first. You want to be more nurturing? Nurture yourself more. You want to yell less? Stop beating yourself up so much. You want to be more attentive and present? Be more attentive to and conscious of your own needs.

This is your chance..

Be prepared to leave your busyness behind, laugh…like a lot, create quality connections, deep-dive, and remember a little bit more clearly just who you really are.

Here’s what we’ll do..

The MOMunication Workshop is for overwhelmed women tired of repeating themselves. Did you know that women are 2x as likely to be depressed or anxious as men? I believe this is because women have some specific-to-us stuff on our plate…some of it is not-so-visible. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DEAL WITH INVISIBLE THINGS?!

If you’ve ever uttered the phrase, “WHY DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, WHY CAN’T YOU JUST KNOW!?” in your relationship…this workshop is for you. Get the tools, skills, and mindsets I’ve used for over a decade to help women get themselves back.
