A woodsman was once asked: “What would you do if you had just five minutes to chop down a tree?”
He answered, “I would spend the first two and a half minutes sharpening my axe.”

As caretakers, mother’s so often separate these two tasks when they are, in fact, one and the same. You cannot complete the task of taking care of others if you do not spend the necessary time to care for yourself. During this 3-part series we will dive into effective and nourishing methods of self care that have stood the test of time and cultural shifts.

Join Faith Miller and explore the benefits of establishing healthy rituals, breathing, movement, self-massage, meditation & journaling, and ultimately letting go.

You can take part in these offerings independently from one another as well.
