The Sacred Conversation
One spring day last year, I was walking with an expecting friend around a beautiful lake in the center of Denver. As we took our time, enjoying the warm sun on our faces, we began discussing her pregnancy, her feelings about her baby's upcoming birth and becoming mothers. For the past 6 years, this conversation has been a warm and familiar one. There is always something to discover in them - even though these conversations have been commonplace in my world since my first pregnancy 6 years ago. As we spoke about what she was feeling about how fast the pregnancy was going, how challenging it was to really sit with her pregnancy, and how much she wished she could just get away by herself and connect with her baby in a quiet place.
I related on a deep level to where she was. I too, had felt that calling to go inward, to disconnect from my every day life and reconnect with that feminine place within me that would be the source I would draw upon to birth my babies. And as it happens with me, a dream began to form- a sweet dream about a retreat for pregnant women...to offer mothers a way to really honor all those things that really honor a woman in her pregnancy, while also offering support to her preparation for birth and becoming a mother. I had so many ideas.
And so Embracing the Mother Retreats was born! And the details fell into place, like a sacred puzzle magically coming together: the retreat space (Sun Mountain Center), amazing facilitators, and expecting mothers began to emerge. And I couldn't be more thrilled to be hosting our second Embracing the Mother Spring Prenatal Yoga Retreat. With a strong focus on all things yoga and pregnancy, ridiculously delicious organic food and a space that is just perfect for a spring getaway, this is a one-of-a-kind retreat!
So here's my invitation...Come away. Pamper yourself. Indulge. Nurture.
