Monday Night Meditation for Mothers and Care Givers – Online via Zoom.
This is an opportunity to journey through the year experiencing meditation and mindfulness techniques, deepening your understanding, awareness and connection to your Self, and cultivating the way you want to grow, live and love in 2021.
As an ever transforming human in an ever changing world, a meditation practice is a magnificent way to provide the space for you to regularly let go and de-stress, reflect, reset, realign and nurture your Self and your intentions.
Each week the overall intention is to work with a gentle and nurturing breath, create a state nourishing relaxation, and to calm and quieten our busy multi tasking minds. I work with mindfulness and meditation techniques that we will revisit over the weeks so you can become familiar with them, gathering tools to use in your own practice, and throughout your day of care giving.
In amongst building on foundational meditation and mindfulness techniques, I shift the focus week by week, working with and drawing inspiration from various wisdom traditions, our connection to our internal cycles, lunar cycles and the seasonal cycles of the earth. I also spend time sharing and reflecting on our role, goals and challenges as conscious parents and care givers and how we can apply the awareness and awakening that can occur in meditation, to our relationships with those we love and care for.
The classes are open to anyone identifying with being on the motherhood journey. Mothering and caring comes in many forms – future mothers, pregnant women, parents, grandmothers, nannies or care givers… anyone who is living or working with the demands of caring for others, and who may need to consciously seek a little more nourishment to maintain a healthy sense of wellbeing.
Mothers and care givers generally may not always have the space to meditate alone or for long periods of time. I focus on techniques and practices that can be done in small moments with or without children, and can be integrated into your day.
No experience of meditation is necessary, and no need to move any further than your own bed! The class goes from 8 till 8.45 and you can join from anywhere in the world. I can send you the replay if you don’t make it or the time difference doesn’t work for you.
It’s by donation and you can do one or all of the classes, or come and go as many times as you like over the year (for details on how to donate via PayPal, please scroll to the bottom of this page).

Finding Calm, Meditation in Motherhood Four Week Online Course via Zoom
“Whatever stage of motherhood you are at, knowing how to meditate is potentially life-changing wisdom.”
Finding Calm is a course for mums who would like to learn how to meditate or mums who would like to deepen their experience of meditation and mindfulness as it unfolds throughout their motherhood journey.
Motherhood is incredibly challenging, awe-inspiring, magical, heartbreaking, and deeply transformative. Knowing how to meditate and having an awareness of how to move through your day mindfully, can help you surf the ups and downs and stay connected to your ‘self’ throughout the motherhood journey. It can support you to keep your nervous system regulated during the low and stressful times, and it can support you to feel more joy in the many small and big miraculous moments of mummy life.
Meditation in motherhood needs to be adaptable, responsive and opportunistic! You won’t always be sticking to a predetermined schedule, and you won’t always get to have a daily uninterrupted practice sitting in peace on your meditation cushion. But with a commitment to practice in some way every day, you can find your flow and feed it into your day naturally when moments arise.
Over the weeks we will
– Learn foundational meditation techniques to begin your daily practice
– Learn practices that will relax, nourish and care for you
– Get inspiration and ideas on how you can incorporate these practices into your life with your little humans in tow
– Explore practices that cultivate consciousness and mindfulness in the way you approach parenting and the way you live your life.
“Meditation brings more consciousness, presence and connection to your ‘self’, your loved ones and the world around you. The magic of this process will flow on to benefit many areas of your life, and many dimensions of your wellbeing.”
