Create Space for Your Heart
Support for Your Heart
From the comfort of home.
A guided journey of rest and self care, after miscarriage, baby or child loss, or infertility.
Join us for this new online support and self care workshop from Mothering Your Heart.
That sense of empty arms
Words often fail to describe how hard it can be to navigate the world after a devastating loss.
Though your life has been completely altered, the pressure to 'move on' or 'let it go' can be intense.
You're invited to rest here, to check in with your heart, and pause as you consider your next steps.
As you cope with everything that is going on for you right now, I hope you'll feel supported here.
I created this space after years of working as a midwife, with families experiencing many different kinds of losses, and after going through my own losses, realizing just how much support is needed and how hard it can be to find.
Support for Your Heart is a journey that offers an extra layer of support and comfort as you heal, grieve and remember.
You're welcome here, with all that you're holding in your heart.
You're Not Alone
This kind of grief may be harder than you could have ever imagined.
You may feel lost and overwhelmed, or wonder how you're supposed to cope and keep going.
The people you usually turn to for help may not be showing up the way you expected.
While it is true that everyone is going through a lot right now, losing important parts of your support system can make things even harder to deal with.
Support for Your Grieving Heart
This space is for you. You can bring your story, your love, hope and dreams, your sadness and longing, your joy and memories, and everything in between.
It is meant to be a place where you can be just as you are, with no pressure to act as though everything is fine, no need to force a smile through your tears.
It was created as a way to share my deep trust in your ability to get through this, both because of the strength of the love that you carry, and the wisdom inside you that is guiding your way.
I've been facilitating grief support workshops here for the past six years. Each year offers something different, though they are all based on a foundation of warmth and compassionate support.
This Year's Workshop
With the pandemic, our stress levels are so much higher than usual, and when added to the grief you are already dealing with, it can just feel like too much.
So this year's content has been designed for maximum comfort and minimal stress, offering tools to help you feel grounded, calmer, and more able to rest and regroup.
It centres around the idea of finding moments of calm amidst everything that you're going through, with guided support to help you find these moments.
There is nothing you have to 'do', rather you are encouraged to 'do less'. It includes many different options to help you find comfort, and lots of space for you to rest and rebalance.
What to Expect
This is a self-guided online journey that you can go through at your own pace.
Each week for six weeks you'll receive a package of supports in your inbox, including guided restorative yoga sessions, calming meditations, journaling prompts, options for self care, and a beautiful planner for reflection and keeping notes.
Everything is held in a private online workshop space, away from social media so you can take a bit of a break but still feel connected.
You can go through in your own time and revisit anything you find helpful for up to a year.
The experience is designed to provide a place to rest, while being gentle and realistic.
It is my hope that if you decide to take part, you'll find it to be a comforting journey filled with compassion and understanding, and that it helps you to find some moments of ease, rest and space to breathe.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, I would love to have you join.
