Motherhood Rising~A Monthly Circle for ALL Mothers

Fridays November 24, December 22, January 19…

Come gather with us in the journey of motherhood, wherever you are in motherhood, to explore, create and be supported. Let’s rise together…sharing, supporting, nourishing + creating.

Each monthly gathering will include a simple, sweet, soothing yoga practice followed by time to circle up and share our Motherhood stories, concerns, questions + encouragements while enjoying a creative project.

Motherhood is so full: Full of love. Full of life. Full of responsibilities. Full of demands. Full of many feelings. To be a mindful mama it is necessary to create ways to keep your own cup full. This restorative evening does just that. Spacious, simple, slow, juicy + creative, it provides room to breathe and to listen to your heart.

This gathering is hosted by Lisa Monseglio and Ashley Jacobs, Mommas and friends. Lisa is a yoga teacher here at ocean earth wind fire and Ashley is a doula and yoga teacher in Lancaster.

Modifications can be made for any stage of motherhood/pregnancy. ALL MOTHERS ARE WELCOME.

Yoga River Trip, Let Go of the Shore

Saturday, November 18, 8-10am
A yoga field-trip! Regarding the RIVER!
Saturday morning yoga with Susan hits the road again, this time to the Brandywine River Museum and an “elemental” exhibit: highwatermarks by Dylan Gauthier.
 
At ocean earth wind fire, we walk the river, conspire to save the environment, bless the waters and MOVE…fluid, free and natural.
 
We dive into Hopi wisdom: “Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.”
 
And, we learn and grow as a community, a tribe.
 
Dylan Gauthier: highwatermarks, the first US solo museum project by the Brooklyn-based artist Dylan Gauthier (b. 1979, Los Angeles), centers on an immersive video and audio installation that was planned, filmed, and edited during the artist’s year-long residency at the Brandywine River Museum of Art which focused on key aspects of the Brandywine Conservancy’s activities.
 
We’ve secured private time in this exhibit for our yoga class & meditation! Gather at the Brandywine River Museum promptly at 7:55am. We will practice and sit to drink in artistry, inspiration and wisdom. Then settle in the museum cafe for discussion and sharing. Your ticket is also admission to the museum in general, so linger as long as you like!
 
The cost is $20pp and must be paid in advance to hold your spot. The gallery can accommodate 20 so purchase your tix now!
 
Thank you to Tracey DiPaolo, who heard the NPR podcast with the artist and brought this beautiful opportunity to my attention! Link to the exhibit and the podcast below:
 
 

Essential Elements: A Seasonal Workshop Series for Finding Yourself in Nature

Essential Elements: A Seasonal Workshop Series for Finding Yourself in Nature
with Susan Madden-Cox

EVERY time I teach the elements, the wisdom and the resonance becomes deeper and more meaningful…for me AND for my students. I relish the opportunity to explore and expand the rich and reliable practice of observing, honoring, appreciating and USING water, wind, rock and heat as a way into self-understanding, soul-awareness and a really, really nice feeling of wholeness and well-being.

Did you know that each season of the year correlates to an element? Circle with Susan 4 times every year to re-attune to the natural teachings present to us always as useful and accessible tools for realignment and health. Each workshop will include movement, discussion and creativity in a delightful blend that is sure to inspire. Practical ways to keep the practice going on your own at home will be clear and simple.

Registration is open! $45 for each two-hour reboot!

Death & Dying, A Workshop Series with Selena Morresi

Death and Dying Workshop:

Death touches all of our lives. It is a part of the natural flow of nature; as things arise and fall, so shall we all. Let the seasons help guide us through an exploration of grief, death and dying.

Beginning this winter starting January 19th 2018, we will meet once a season to explore grief, death and dying and allow the quality of the seasons to guide us. The goal of this workshop is to explore what we fear about death, how we can find meaning in death, how we can celebrate those who have died, and how we can prepare for our own death and live a fuller life.

Please bring a journal to write in. We will be seated on the floor during most of the workshop so feel free to bring blankets and pillows.

Winter -January 19th, 2018 6:30-8pm   Healing and embracing darker days: finding meaning in death, and acknowledging our fear of death.

Spring – (Date TBA) Moving from darkness to light, renewal, and finding life from death.

Summer – (Date TBA) Embracing death through the lens of life and how we can honor and celebrate those who have died.

Fall- (Date TBA) Contemplation and preparation for our own death and life.

The cost of each workshop is $25.  Please pre-register to attend.

Selena Morresi has always had a passion for learning and was a very curious child who loved to explore new ideas and activities. Never quite sure of what she wanted to be when she “grew up” lead to an 10 year undergrad career as she changed her major many times to explore all that college had to offer. Once Selena realized that becoming a professional student was not an option, she completed her Bachelors in Psychology and later received a Masters degree in Public Health. Selena is still learning and growing and has become a Reiki Master Practitioner, Certified Heath Educator and a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist.  Selena is currently completing a certification in Holistic Stress Management, receiving her Reiki Master Teacher Attunement in October and plans to peruse her Death Doula certification this summer in New Mexico. Selena works as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist by day, helping people change their behavior and quit using nicotine products. At night Selena is adjunct faculty at West Chester University in the Health Department where she teaches courses that focus on Mental Health and Death and Dying.
