Whole Mama Program

Program

The Whole Mama Wellness program strives to support and inspire motivated, mamas looking to improve their lives through multi-focused practical education, life skills support and personal discovery. Changing each Mama’s relationship with money, with food, herself and her family …supporting women in cultivating wholeness again

Program Outline

At Mamas for Mamas, our key initiatives and programs are designed with the message of a “hand up” not a “hand out”, meaning that in order to get to the systemic issues of poverty, certain belief systems that have been passed on from generation to generation need to be re threaded with the belief that they can change their path. This program has been developed with this in mind, addressing issues such as mental health, financial health, mindful practises, eating well, exercise, etc, and these are delivered by educated, respected members in the communities in each of their fields.

Workshops

 

Setting up for Success

Special Guest Speaker: Tara Hogan – Manual Therapist | Educator | Coach

When: August 15, 2019
4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Where: Mamas for Mamas office

 

What is “Success”?  Are you Successful? Do you LOVE your job?

Success comes to us in many ways, and in most cases we think about the big successes in life – new job, getting married, new baby, new house, promotion… but we have many successes before any of those ever come along.  In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to discover what “success” can look like, discuss what short term goals they have both personal and professionally and what they are passionate about. From there we can get creative and begin to make a concrete strategy to create their personal success.

 

This is a great workshop for a new mom retuning to the workforce, for someone who has been out of the workforce for several years, or someone who is starting to plan a return and not really sure on how to create success in that return.

 

If you are looking at a career move, wanting advise on whats the best “job” for you, considering starting your own business, or have a business that needs some love, you won’t want to miss this workshop!

This is a taster of the Circle of Security principles/model –

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Using the COS-P model developed by the Circle of Security originators, our trained Facilitators work with parents and care-givers to help them to:

  • Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
  • Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child’s self esteem
  • Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
