    Practicing Self-Compassion and Grace: A Journaling Workshop for New Moms

    Are you expecting or have you recently become a new parent? This transition in our life can be simultaneously terrifying and wonderful, stressful and exciting. You are not alone! It’s often said “it takes a village” when caring for our little ones. But the same is true when taking care of ourselves/each other. Join Emma for a workshop with reflective journaling, meaningful conversations and guided meditation as we cultivate compassion and grace for ourselves and each other. Emma, a new mom herself and creator of Sacred Tradition, specializes in building intentional community through supporting individuals to live more authentically and collaboratively. Cost $20 per person, register via Venmo @Sacred-Transition or PayPal - Sacred Transition
