Saturday, May 14, 10:30 a.m.: Beyond Mom Workshop

In this 2 hour workshop we will explore, through dialogue and art, in a safe, judgment-free environment our multiple identities, where they conflict, coincide, move you towards or away from yourself. We will explore what it means to be a sister, daughter, mother, wife, partner, lover, friend and colleague. And, most importantly, you will explore and discover what it means to be you- to be an “I” in this world filled with “we”.
