MotherCircle is an 8 week journey.  

It offers women in all seasons of life an opportunity to mine the profound wisdom that can emerge through motherhood.

It returns us to an age old practice: women, sitting in circle, with intention, growing together through support, honesty & courage.

Origin Story

Sarah has always been achingly curious about how her contemplative practices intersect with the demands of a lay person's most intimate relationships. 

She is endlessly interested in how the long term, committed relationships that we might have with a spouse or a child demand that these wisdom practices penetrate the earnest, loyal and grueling work of the heartmind that comes with sustaining & deepening these most precious relationships.

Enter MotherCircle. When Sarah experienced this circle, led by other rad women in her community that she respects and values, she knew she wanted to be a part of sharing this way of being with other women, gathering to mine clarity & wisdom together.

"Surveying both myself and the collective landscape of women, I have come to recognize missing pieces in the quilt, holes in the fabric of the experience that is contemporary motherhood— full of ancient instincts and whispering embodied knowings— that are often juxtaposed by modern structures and mores that overflow with sweeping momentums that take the shape of separateness, confusion and sheer speed.


MotherCircle is a step towards the repair that comes through a reclamation of communal practices and rituals, the clarity that comes from learning from and amongst other wise women, and an opportunity to occupy space as a mother that is genuinely honest and unhurried.  


It celebrates intergenerational sisterhood, discernment, autonomy and the immeasurable fruits that come from a Mother who knows who she is and what she values with unflinching courage."
