Join a global movement of fierce mothers on a pathway of wisdom, reaching generations.

Together, we build Mother Culture.
Women circling is the oldest code. Ancient wisdom and modern research tell us that when women gather, their mental and emotional health drastically improves. And when mothers thrive, communities thrive.
Our patterns of relating are out of alignment with the fundamental needs that all humans have for connection and belonging.
The cultural fabric is torn and we believe that it’s our work to do something about it. We have moved away from village-mindedness, and it’s mothers who suffer the most.
But what if we could change that simply through mothers gathering and connecting about the things that really matter?
What if instead of an epidemic of disconnection we could seed a culture of wisdom? For us, for our children, and for our children’s children.
This is the mission of MotherCircle.
Join the next MotherCircle in Morgan Hill and gather with local mothers and remember the long line of women you come from. This is an 8 class, in person course for mothers of all ages and stages who want to understand the unseen parts of their motherhood journey - physically, sexually, emotionally, spiritually, and archetypally. Together, we collect all our parts and consciously weave our own motherhood journey.
The Arch of MotherCircle
The structure and content of the course was developed by Kimberly Ann Johnson, author of The Fourth Trimester, and Jessica Connolly with the intention of rebuilding mother culture in a meaningful way.
Entering motherhood is an underworld journey often not seen and recognized by the outer world. Learn the arc of this journey, the tools to be present to it, and be witnessed as you locate yourself within it.
Awareness of our cyclical nature can help us align with our innate wisdom as mothers. Explore how being in rhythm with the cycles in and around us gives us more access to our wholeness and our power.
Everything a new baby needs, a new mother also needs. Learn a powerful framework for assessing your physical and emotional wellness, and how to tend to a what's needed in your body no matter where you are at in your motherhood journey.
The predator - prey dynamic is present in our experience of birth and motherhood. Explore how this awareness and understanding of your nervous system can impact your everyday life and mothering.
Birth is an initiatory experience that fundamentally changes us. We'll explore ways to access and share this experience that locates the wisdom that it has to offer for our motherhood journeys.
There is often a split between being a mother and being sexual. Learn how to connect with your ever changing sexuality as a mother and become more at home in your body and your sexuality.
Motherhood changes how we relate to our work in the world. Explore the relationship between your worth and your value and anchor the things that nurture your worth as part of your mothering practice.
We have a powerful opportunity to imagine the legacy we'd like to leave. We are shaped by our motherline and the mothers around us, and we can choose what we want to carry forward. Together we'll Identify the values that we want to guide our mothering and shape our lineage.
Join a community of powerful mamas facing many of the same big questions, challenges and successes.
MotherCircle is for:
-Mothers of all ages and stages in the Morgan Hill, CA area
-Mothers who want to build a community with other moms
-Mothers seeking to have deeper conversations about their motherhood journey
