When I was a new parent, I longed for community, for with whom I could connect, share, and explore deeply the transformation that was occurring within me and around me. I found a baby group of local parents, some of whom are my dearest friends to this day. Still, the group was not all that I needed or wanted. While discussing feeding issues and parenting challenges was valuable, what I longed for and found difficult to locate was a place for a depth of conversation beyond diapers and sleep. I longed to be held in a circle of other parents who were also being transformed by parenthood, to find a space where this transformation was a central aspect of our shared exploration. Finding  that proved difficult. These circles offer to parents just such a space. 

This is not your typical parenting group. This is not a "bitch session" although open, tender, and deep sharing about the challenges of parenthood are welcome. This is not about parenting solutions, although exploring how to listen to your own wisdom will be encouraged. This is not an opportunity to complain about your partner, but exploring changing couple dynamics will be addressed and supported.

You can do more than just survive new parenthood, you deserve to thrive!

Groups are facilitated and guided to allow for maximum impact for all participants. 

Unplug, share, drop in, and connect with other parents.
