Re-forming Motherhood Workshop
Are you a happy mom? It’s a harder question than it seems.
I’ve taught gender and women’s studies courses at local universities for years now, and when I tell other women what I do, they most often respond by saying: “How I wish I could take a gender class knowing what I know now.” Nowhere is that more true than thinking about who we are as moms in 2017.
Whether you’re a mom-to-be or a mom of five, this six-week workshop will help you examine why you are the mom you are and how to make the most of that role for who you are today and ten years from now. Through thought-provoking and collaborative workshops, you will (re)define what it means to be a great mom: for yourself, your kids, and your partner. Classes are a mixture of critical consciousness-raising, personal reflection, and stimulating conversations in a cozy coach house called The (M)other Space.
Meet new friends or bring your own, enjoy a great glass of wine and even better conversation, and treat yourself to some time in a thoughtful and inclusive environment where you will feed your brain and nourish your spirit.
Classes are on Fridays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This session will run September 29-November 3 and include the following:
Week 1: A Mother’s Tale: Where We Were, Are, and Will Be as Moms
Week 2: Illusion of Choice: Family vs. Work … and All Points Between
Week 3: Media Moms: Lifting the Fictional Film
Week 4: Waging the War on the Wage Gap: Boosting Your Value
Week 5: What’s a Dude to Do? Getting Dads More Involved
Week 6: Re-forming Motherhood: Building Your Action Plan
The six-week workshop will be offered at $229 (plus fees) and includes beverages (wine, water, and tea). Some reading will be assigned but is not mandatory for full enjoyment of the course. A sliding scale is offered upon request.
If you have any questions about the class, Send me a message at email@example.com. I hope you will consider joining us. What we know helps not only us but those around us, now and in the future.
