Before motherhood you did it all, you felt like you had it all together, and you looked great while doing it. Now with kids, there is so more to do and so many more places to be, that your patience is super thin and you can't remember the last time you washed your hair.
There aren't many who say this out loud, but we know... motherhood is tough!
You give your all to your kids, your job and your family. And, of course, while you love your kids, you're exhausted from trying to be supermom. You feel guilty from all the yelling, you can't get a moment to yourself, and you're left wondering how it is that other moms do it.
You can be a patient mom while taking time for yourself. This is where Amiga Moms can help!
There are a variety of events throughout the year, for every type of mom. The choice is yours!
Amiga Moms hosts monthly virtual meet-ups for moms of kids of all ages. It is a curated space to build community in what can sometimes seem to be an isolating world for mothers, while receiving support from mental health professionals.
While the group is not therapy, it may feel therapeutic to get things off your mind. The 60-minute sessions are like a support group that provides moms the opportunity to...
engage in "real talk" discussion
connect with other moms
process emotions without shaming or judgment
gain parenting skills and tips
relax with a guided meditation at the end of each session
Moms of all cultures are welcome! Sessions are all held in the English language.
Amiga Moms hosts social and educational events - hosted by a licensed therapist - providing an outlet for busy moms while teaching mindfulness strategies, to help mothers live a life with peace of mind and ease of heart.
Past events have included collaborating with spas, pediatricians, authors, workout instructors and more! If you would like to collaborate with Amiga Moms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In-Person Events are currently being planned for 2023. Be sure to sign up to the mailing list to be a part of the Amiga Moms Community to get first notice and discounted rates for upcoming events.
In the meantime you're welcome to view past events below.
Who wants to go to a conference in a hotel convention space to sit down in hard chairs all day to learn? NO ONE!
But who wouldn't mind learning while eating a full brunch with mimosas and connecting with other moms? And as with all amazing parties, leaving with a swag bag in band! This is the vibe of the Amiga Moms "conference" which was first called a "social."
The first "conference" was held in 2019 and was a true success as it was a sold out event! Moms from the NJ/NY area attended live to learn of the powers of mindfulness.
Unfortunately, the pandemic put the event on pause, but it will be back soon!
The mission of Amiga Moms is to empower 21st century mothers through a supportive network and educational events with mindful practices to become moms who thrive, not just survive.
Virtual and quarterly events bring in dashes of needed respite throughout the year. However for a more immersive experience, Amiga Moms Onsite Retreats are coming!
