Pregnancy is a time of transition, growth and change. In the months your baby grows inside of you (or your partner) - you have an opportunity to grow yourself. While transition and growth do mean change, it does not have to mean abandonment of who you are. Instead it can mean growing more into yourself and knowing yourself better.
In this interactive workshop you will be invited to think about what is important to you - what makes “you” you. For it is those qualities that will guide you as you parent and shape your life moving forward.
The workshop will start with guided yoga and breathing exercises designed to get you in the mindset to be comfortable, creative and reflective. After a few guideline questions, and some practical how to’s on working with the materials you will put your personalized responses into action by creating a Life Pie - a 3D a circle comprised of many pieces that form a whole made of clay. Your sculpture, representing your life in the shape of a pie (what could be better!) is yours to keep around as long as you wish –a long with your guideline questions, directions on baking and some thoughts on how to use your pie for reflection.
