December 6, 2009 : Make Room for Mom's Voice - a journaling, storytelling and writing interactive workshop with Jen Lee
Motherhood can be both a challenging and a transformative experience. We may uncover new dreams for our lives, or sides of ourselves we haven't before experienced. At other times, we may struggle to keep a strong sense of ourselves in the chorus of voices calling for our attention.

Make Room for Mom's Voice is an interactive workshop that invites moms of all ages to use journaling, storytelling and writing in daily or weekly practices to strengthen your experience of your own voice and capture the moments you don't want to forget.
If you are looking for a safe place to find your voice or order your thoughts, this workshop is for you. You will leave with inspiring stories, practical tools and the kind of renewal that only comes from reconnecting with yourself. This is an intimate gathering, so spots are limited. The workshop is generously sponsored by Birth Day Presence. The 3-hour workshop is $45, and includes light refreshments.
