“When a group of women are given permission to connect with each other, they find a strength inside themselves. A Soul Mama Circle is about traversing this challenging post natal period together; sharing wisdom, love & support.”
Soul Mama Circles
WHAT IS A SOUL MAMA CIRCLE?
Soul Mama Circles have been facilitated by Nadine Richardson for over 8 years at the Dharma Shala Yoga School in Bondi. They are the coming together of mums and bubs on a weekly basis. Each gathering is an opportunity where you can feel safe and supported in each others confidentiality and listening. A place for connection and growth where a woman can share about her child but also about her personal journey too. Topics are set and discussed each week including sleep, self care, relationship changes and more.
Feel free to spread the word amongst your friends, even if they have not attended She Births® or been to yoga at The Dharma Shala.
Our next Bondi circle will start on Thursday 28 February from 2-3:30pm with Nadine.
WHERE CAN I FIND ONE?
The Eastern Suburbs Soul Mama Circles are facilitated at The Dharma Shala Yoga School in Bondi with Nadine Richardson and then the circles rotate around houses or local parks weekly.
Some of our other Educators, including Radha in Manly and Nadine O’Mara in Mona Vale also facilitate circles. For our other mums around Australia we currently have online Facebook circles that you can be a part of so just let us know when you are ready to join.
Our Mona Vale circles will be fortnightly at Yoga & Health Collective starting Thursday 1st November then 15th and 29th November at 2:30pm. You can email Nadine to register.
For Soul Mama circles with Radha, please feel free to email her here. as dates for 2019 are TBA.
“We don’t just talk about poo and sleep, even though that’s really important. We talk about how our identity is changing as a woman, how we can better take care of ourselves and even how we can have a better relationship with our partners.”
“The Soul Mama Circle has been one of the most profound and supportive experiences. All mothers should have this precious support.”
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Most of our groups continue for years and adapt as babies grow. They become a strong support through the creation of community and have a like minded conscious parenting philosophy.
A single payment is made for one mum and bub to attend the initial facilitation with Nadine Richardson and to be a part of our continuing and unique Soul Mama Circles.
Circles also tend to merge into gatherings with partners too on the weekends, and can change into evenings as mums return to work and babies get older.
“It is 4 years on and we are still going strong. We all feel so grateful for the creation of our Circle. We love it and so do the children.”
