In honor of Mother’s Day, this 8-hour, live, online course honors the legacy of light and shadow that our mothers, and foremothers, have passed on to us. As we acknowledge that mothers are complex, multifaceted beings ~ we come to hold space for the gifts and wounds we received with more grace, resilience, and resolve to pass on the example/power of an integrated life to the generations to come.
This woman whose heart has seen yours,
First before anybody else in the world,
And whose womb had opened the door
For your eyes to experience light and more…
This Mother’s Day, join Amy Wright Glenn for the launch of
HOLDING SPACE for our MOTHERS
Presented live and online
Wednesdays, May 5, 12, 19, and 26
*Participants need not be present online to enroll in this course. All four modules will be recorded.
All experiences of mothering are welcome for mothers are complex, multifaceted beings. Mothers can both nourish and wound us. They are shadow and light. Whether you regard your mother as your closest friend, never knew your birth mother, are estranged, grieve the loss of your mother, or are working to show up (or support your partner in showing up) as a present, mindful, and compassionate mother ~ you are welcome.
Each week, participants will explore the mother archetype through a different lens of examination, reflection, and meditation.

Week Two ~ The Mother as Protector
Week Three ~ The Mother as Shadow
Week Four ~ The Mother as Self
Participants will also have the option of joining small group discussion circles wherein they share stories of their mothers in a safe space ~ stories that honor all dimensions described above.
All are welcome here.
Sessions will be recorded for participants via Zoom.
Each 2-hour session includes breakout room discussion groups that are not recorded.
In preparation for this course, participants are asked to read

We honor them.
