Mama Glow #SoftLife Summer Series: Grounding and Healing for Birth Workers
To celebrate #SoftLife this summer, join Mama Glow as we offer free mindfulness, music, and movement in the outdoors! We are back outside and want you to join us for a gathering space, music, snacks along with free/low-cost services ranging from meditations to tarot readings to yoga and movement for our birth worker community as we gather and take a moment to pour into care within the community to then be of service to others with fullness and love.
#SoftLife encompasses a lifestyle of joy and ease, a hashtag that originated in the Nigerian influencer community.
Hosted by Mama Glow fellows Delena Alemayehu and Elisa Kim, each of these FREE sessions for Mama Glow Doulas will feature different Mama Glow community members offering their gifts to the community at large. Sessions will open with grounding with Elisa, lead into the main presenter and practice, and will close with musical tunes curated DJ Neli Nasty (aka Delena) – so be ready to dance!
It’s been a while since we’ve been able to gather and we are back outside y’all!
Calling all NYC and Tri-State Doulas! Come join us. And if you are located further away, please feel free to make arrangements to comes your doula siblings!
Mama Glow #SoftLife Summer Series – Brooklyn, McCarren Park
Somatic Meditation Practice
Featuring: Yera, Healing Arts + Somatic Practitioner and Doula
The Practice: There are so many ways to practice meditation. A somatic approach offers a way of supporting our nervous systems through body awareness, environmental resources and tuning into our senses. Yera will guide us through a meditation practice that is not attached to any outcome, instead it will help us create space for our physical, mental, emotional and energetic experiences to be held, supported and nurtured. Energy work and hands-on assists will be offered with consent.
What to bring: For your comfort, please bring a blanket and a cushion and wear comfortable clothing for movement, and be ready to receive.
Your Guide: Yera has been a healing arts practitioner for over 10 years. Offering support through intentional, slower practices is Yera’s signature style as she is very passionate about guiding her clients to feel safe and at ease. Her offerings include but are not limited to somatic meditation practices, reiki, breathwork, Thai bodywork, yin and restorative yoga. Yera answered the call to become a Doula after her experience with a nearly 80 hour labor and minimal postpartum support all at the height of the pandemic. Her greatest desire is to offer a space for connection, introspection and wholehearted support.
Your Hosts: Delena Alemayehu and Elisa Kim are Mama Glow Brown University fellows and Mama Glow Doulas who are committed to wellness and contemplative practice.
Location: We will be gathering at McCarren Park in Williamsburg/Greenpoint Brooklyn. You will be notified of the exact location inside of the park prior to the event.
Closest trains include: L to Bedford, G to Nassau.
