A half day retreat for moms offering self-nurturing strategies for wholehearted living and vibrant good health.
We’ve got strategies to embed that kindness in your mind, body and spirit. Come experience mom-focused mindfulness, yoga, nutrition, life coaching, Reiki and more. You’ll learn positive habits that can fit seamlessly into your life, giving you less “to-do” and more to enjoy.

9:00 – 10:00 AM – Welcome and group presentation on Self Nurturing Strategies from Molly, Cory and Stacy. We’ll cover mind, body and spirit with guided meditation, a truly nourishing approach to food, and the profound importance of a mother’s love for herself.
10:00 – 11:45 AM – Small group breakout sessions. (details below)
- Love Well Live Well with Molly Shrewsberry – Love yourself. Be yourself. Become the mother you want to be.
- Nourishment Meets Nutrition with Stacy Kennedy – Get answers about what to eat, how to keep it simple and get to the heart of good health and wellness.
- Mindfulness for Moms with Cory Halaby – Learn simple practices to keep you calm, kind, centered and effective.
12:00 – 1:00 PM – Where self-nurturing strategies meet real life. Community and panel discussion with Q & A.
We won’t be serving lunch, but we will have delicious, healthy snacks on offer.
AFTERNOON APPOINTMENTS 1:30 – 3:30 PM
Upon registration, you’ll have the chance to reserve limited one-on-one appointments for individual wellness coaching with Stacy, Molly or Cory as well as Reiki and chair massage.
