With the warming weather and the emerging spring ephemerals, I'm getting super excited to share Gathering Ground with you all.
And considering feedback I've received from you, the spring session will now be suitable for families with toddlers!
So that means, while you take in the lessons of healing plants, your little ones will be having tea parties, building nests, and making stone soup. While you sit in silent meditation, your child will be exploring teepees and setting fairy traps (they might just come by to give you a smooch while you sit, too).
Parents with pre-ambulatory babes, fear not - we will soon offer classes just for you, too. Stay tuned!
I am so pleased to introduce you to Gathering Ground, a way for new parents to connect to themselves, their children, and their world, creating a sense of calm, renewal, and stability in our busy urban lives. Gathering Ground is your opportunity to sloooooow down, breathe, and see the beauty in the mundane. Coming this spring, I'll be leading groups of families with wee babes through mindfulness activities in beloved Prospect Park. The first session lasts 8-weeks and is open to parents with toddlers. You can sign up for those on the Register page. Future sessions will be open to parents of pre-walking babes, too.
We'll walk and notice. We'll sit and notice. We'll learn about the healing plants that grow all around us, even in our densely populated and developed city. We'll discover our true nature, inside and out.
In addition to 8-week sessions, I'll be offering seasonal parent-only and family workshops on how to incorporate healing plants into our daily lives. And I'll be teaching at the New York Botanical Garden, and will feature those classes on the Classes page.
As a new parent, it's easy to focus entirely on your new babe and forget about caring for your self. I know, I've been there. I'm excited to serve new parents on this journey of discovering who they are in this new role, who their babe is, and how everyone fits into the wild wide world around us.
I'll be posting in the journal weekly. Please sign up for the newsletter if you'd like to receive monthly updates and special offers on workshops and sessions.
Thank you for being here!
