Ever find yourself wishing you had more friends with young children, especially ones who shared your outlook on parenting and natural living? Holistic Moms Network may be just what you need.
I recently joined a chapter in my area. I had been meaning to go for months (ok, more like a year) because they hold monthly informational meetings about quite interesting topics from organic gardening in your backyard to vaccinations, homeopathy, and natural childbirth. The monthly meetings feature an expert guest speaker and serve as a great way to meet other natural/holistic, mindful mamas in your area. It’s a truly non-judgmental atmosphere, which makes all the difference.
Well, it’s been a lot of fun! I know that the whole point of the network is to meet others who share your way of life and to live and learn as a community, but meeting these people has provoked more than one “I’m not alone!” epiphanies. Now I’m helping to facilitate a bi-monthly book club and starting to form relationships through socials and playdates. It’s so inspiring!
