~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This one-day conference aims to highlight the largely unacknowledged spiritual dimensions of motherhood. Presenters will share their personal and professional insights into the spiritual life of mothers and the growth-producing potential of parenting. Together we'll re-imagine pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering as an initiation into a new way of being -- an opportunity for spiritual awakening where children are also empowered as true catalysts of transformation. Experiential exercises, lectures, discussion groups, and lunch are included in this groundbreaking all-day intensive on a unique subject.

Spirituality & Motherhood presenters include Aurelie Athan, Marin Bach-Antonson, Buffy Bernhardt, Jerilyn Brownstein, Lisa Miller, Lisa Rafel, Meg Richichi, Eilynne Skove, and Elizabeth Visceglia.

The goal of the Museum of Motherhood is to document the journey of the mother's evolving role while promoting women's studies and the evolution of family. The Museum is a place for women, birthers, caregivers, family, activists, faith and community-based organizations to share stories, conduct research, and learn about the evolution of family.
