Our Mama Circle

Feeling isolated?  Mothering is a complex, challenging, amazing journey….and one that we often travel alone, or alone with our parenting partners & mates.   Such a lonely journey does not serve our children, our selves or our community.  Come join Jahmanna Selassie,  doula, aspiring midwife, massage therapist, mother of 6, and a growing group of fast friends and mothers all.   This free group gathers at Indigo Forest on Thursdays at 9:30 for community & tea, topic presented at 10:00am,  discussion wraps up @ 11:00 am. Children are welcome as you attend & parent them.
