What we're about

When adult children leave the house, we mothers might feel on a roller coaster of emotions: excitement, sadness, happiness, fear, anxiety.

We are witnessing our children living their own life without us. We can worry about it. Sometimes we feel ok, sometimes we don’t.

This support group is a place for those seeking clarity on this new chapter.

Below is the organization of the meeting

Emotional Liberation: Transform stress and anxiety into peace (in-person)

Do you want more inner peace in your life?

Who would you be without stress or anxiety?

How would it feel to be peaceful and serene?

In this retreat, we’ll use the knowledge of the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) to reconnect body, mind, and spirit.

We’ll be exploring where we may be holding tensions, stress, trauma, and struggles, so we can release them and get “unstuck” and move beyond the past blocks.

We are creating a sacred and safe space for you. We are connecting to the times we have felt, peaceful, carefree, and liberated, and bringing that into our space together. We reclaim our wholeness and release the emotions that don't serve us anymore to surrender to ease and confidence.

We open the floor for authenticity, vulnerability, strength, and self-love. Feel completely rejuvenated with our breathwork, ceremonies, inner reflection, movements, and meditation.

In this retreat, you will practice and receive:

  • 5 Element Ayurvedic Yoga to get in Touch with Nature & Your INNER Being
  • Egyptian Blue Lotus Tea Ceremony and Self-Reflection Journaling
  • Breathwork to Remove Fear, Pain, Inner Critic Negativity, and Anxiety
  • Visualization Meditation to Become the Best Version of Yourself Now
  • Purposefully Selected Snacks (The snack is selected according to Ayurvedic principles, season, and time).

Women's circle: Self-Care and Connection (in-person)

Needs a location

You might be an empty-nester for a few weeks or several years, yet the role of mother predominates the woman. We don’t have to sacrifice ourselves as women to be the loving mother that we are.

Do you want your life to be fulfilled?

Do you long to connect back to your truth, your magic, your intuition?

How would it feel to have a meaningful life?

In this month’s circle, we, empty-nester moms, are connecting to our inner voice, and discovering who we are, our truth, and how to create our purpose.

We’re exploring where we may be holding back and not revealing who we really are out of fear or judgment. Where do we feel we “should” be doing things in our life because that’s what society and others expect of us?

We’re connecting to the time we have being carefree and liberated and bringing that into our circle.

This sacred circle is a safe place to:

  • Come together in power to empower each other
  • Connect, heal and learn from each other
  • Be seen, heard, and understood without judgment.

In a gentle but transformational experience, you will be guided through this unique and powerful process of defining a new life and going from Mom to Me again.

Come and experience:
✨ Meditation to listen to your inner voice and know.
✨ Intimate sharing to connect, explore, and reflect on your desires &
life meanings
✨ Yoga Movement to locate and remove mental and physical tensions
(No previews experience in yoga is required)
✨ Breathwork to release emotions that don’t serve you anymore
✨ Ritual to plant the seed of self-transformation

We are stronger as a tribe. We heal, discover, and empower ourselves and our sisters. We claim our truth and are acknowledged for it by the circle.

The circle is limited to 12 open-hearted women.
Upon registration, You will receive an email with more details regarding the day.

"Thank you Sophie! I got so much more out of the workshop than I ever imagined possible. It was like therapy on steroids, in the best possible way.🙏 🌼 " - Traci S.

"It's my second time attending the circle and I could come over and over and always leave with so much more peace, realization, hope, etc... than before. These women's circles are amazing and I recommend them to any woman in search of her "NEW ME". Feeling blessed and grateful to be part of them" - Frederique R.

"Dealing with my child soon flying the nest, as well as many other transitions I'm going through this year, I've been up to my eyeballs with anxiety and overwhelm. In a matter of hours, Sophie helped me release pent-up emotions and get to the bottom of my anxiety. I now feel equipped to handle these big life moments with tranquility. The retreat was the perfect blend of sharing what was on our minds, going within, and then physically releasing emotions through yoga and movement."- Susan G.

​"Sophie created a beautiful space and frame with a variety of "activities" and modalities that allowed us to look at ourselves and our way of living our "empty-nestedness". She created a loving place for us to open up and feel more about what going on with ourselves, It was very healing! Thank you!" - Isabelle F

"Thank you! I came in without expectation, to just be open to what the experience would be. I went a lot deeper than I thought I would in my awareness of the emotions and issues I have. So valuable to share with each other. I really liked how you planted the seeds by what questions you put out and the emotions you talked about and then let space for the process." - Hilarie W.
