As mothers, generosity is our practice. We pour our time, attention, and love into our children. We offer our physical, emotional, and spiritual labor to make a world we want to pass on to them. And we do it all in a society that doesn’t always support us, or our kids, the way that it should. From the Buddhist perspective, generosity is our capacity to receive care, as well as to give it.  In truth, we never stop needing mothering—even after we become mothers ourselves.

In this daylong retreat, on the day before Mother’s Day, we’ll give ourselves time to nurture the inner mother. Through meditation, restorative movement, and journaling, we’ll make space for rest, creativity, healing, and humor in our practice. Most importantly, we’ll lift up mothering as its own spiritual path, and find ways to let our practice mother us, as we in turn mother future generations.

Open to all who are raising or have raised children, including stepmoms, adoptive and foster moms, grandmothers, godmothers, and every other kind of mama. We welcome the spectrum of genders within motherhood, including trans women, cis women, and nonbinary and gender non-conforming people who feel supported in a space that centers motherhood.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email
