The Circle
for Mums

Unwinding with Art & Sisterhood

A place to connect, create and find community

Forget the guilt trips about "me time" – this is about nourishing your soul and connecting to yourself. Through guided journaling, creative expression, and heartfelt conversations, you'll explore your experiences throughout your motherhood journey, reconnect with your passions, and forge genuine connections with a supportive community of women.

You will be leaving this gathering 

  • feeling recharged and re-centred, calm and grounded.

  • having connected with parts of you, that you usually ignore.

  • having learnt something new about yourself and practised tangible self-compassion.

  • feeling connected to a community of beautiful mums.

  • equipped with tools for impactful self-care.

Join us at The Circle for Mums - Unwinding with Art & Sisterhood, featuring Maternal Journal.

 

Don't wait! Take the first step towards finding your tribe and reconnecting with yourself. Sign up for the next gathering below.

Connection

Now, that you are a mum your whole life has changed. Guided journaling will help you to reconnect to yourself in a safe and nurturing environment.

Community

Find true and meaningful connection with other likeminded mums in your area. Build authentic friendships and create your own village.

Creativity

Pouring your thoughts, feelings and experiences onto a page can be incredibly profound. Find your creativity!

Growth

You will discover new things about yourself and learn from other mums and their unique journeys, while nurturing your emotional wellbeing.

What to expect

We start off by really arriving in the present moment and a short introduction. I will then guide you though the journaling prompt - it is a different prompt each time and we will try different modalities each time, too. For example: drawing, collaging, painting, sketching, poetry writing, etc.

There will be cake (yum!) and nourishing organic tea. Calming music will be playing in the background and you are invited to chat, or just focus on your project, whatever feels supportive to you.

After you had some time to get creative and to connect to yourself, we will then exchange our experiences. This is always an invitation and no one has to share anything they aren't comfortable with.

I feel more connected with myself, a little part of me experienced some healing in connecting with and hearing other mother’s experiences.

Maternal Journal Ocean Grove

It was soothing like a warm hug. Lisa takes you to a relaxing, calm journey within yourself and lets you share your experience with others. Then gently pushing you to realise what is going on inside your own body that you may not have found out before.

The Circle for Mums in Ocean Grove

There are not many spaces like this. Maternal Journal is an invitation to be vulnerable and to connect to yourself intentionally. It is a beautiful space to connect with other mums, and feel seen, validated and supported. This is so important and needed."
