Thank you so much for joining us in this new adventure! We are so excited about our new project. Please visit our new website that just launched today! You will find more info on who we are and what we have set out to do there.
We are couple of local Philadelphia moms who are passionate about parenting our children (born 8/2012 and 9/2012), engaging in self care, and having healthy families. We are both members of so many wonderful and supportive online communities; Philadelphia and the surrounding areas are full of amazing, naturally-oriented, mindful parents!
Our main goal is to bring together parents interested in natural, mindful, conscious parenting to dialogue with experts and each other, share information, and learn new things, as we each stitch together our own unique parenting styles. There is no prescription for parenting; the needs and experiences of every family are different, and there is no one way to do things. We feel uncomfortable with the commodification of parenthood and believe that you don’t need certain products to be a certain kind of parent. We hope to give parents an opportunity to connect and grow, inspiring others and getting inspired by others!
Our first major event is “Inspired Family: A Mindful Parenting Conference”, which is going to be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 in the Temple University Student Center. The conference will feature a keynote speaker, 6 workshop/seminar/activity rooms, a vendor area featuring between 50-70 local vendors and resources, a “children’s theater” featuring a variety of local children’s music/story/etc. classes, a Babywearing share space, yoga and other forms of fitness, various levels of swag bags, an opportunity to get a massage (who couldn’t use one of those?!), a chance to enjoy professional photography for your bump/babies, giveaways and prizes, pumping room, changing room, quiet room for taking babies down a notch, lots of lounging spaces, and more! We hope that the needs of the community will shape the content of the conference… Which means, we hope to hear from you here and on our Facebook page. We look forward to getting to know everyone!
All our best,
Lizzy & Nicole
