Landscape of Mothers Book Club
Time & Location
About The Event
This is a two-hour book club online event for Landscape of Mothers: Nature Archetypes as a Guide to Mothering with the author, Jill Doneen Clifton, as our host! The book contains the description of eight landscape archetypes that we encounter in our parenting journey. The author will guide a discussion that will focus on how we can best relate to and utilize these archetypes and the natural world they represent to help us be the parents we want to be. This will be an exploration of the power of archetypes to see our situations more clearly and of the support of nature in finding our own way.
Jill will begin our gathering with a short meditation on each Mother, and then briefly elaborate on ways to use Landscape of Mothers as a wheel (which is covered in the book under the chapter of the same name). We will discuss how working with the Mothers as a wheel can be a powerful tool in helping us stay on track with where we want to go in our relationships with ourselves and our children. We’ll also have a Q&A session in the last 20 minutes.
This workshop will benefit parents of children of any age, even times that feels fraught with difficulty.
The date of the book club is: April 1, 2021 @ 6:30 - 8:30PM

BOOK CLUB BUNDLE
Landscape of Mothers
Landscape of Mothers invites you into a deeper movement ... away from the expectations, roles, demands, institutions, and processes of our culture... and into feeling your own way through the world in accordance with your values and vision. It steps out of dualistic and restrictive ways that pigeonhole people into feeling that they have no choices. Landscape of Mothers has the potential to be a map of liberation, for you personally, and for all of us if we do it together. While this is the big vision for The Landscape of Mothers, it all begins with our own internal freedom to choose our legacy. My desired legacy is one of interconnectedness, cherished individuality, and recognizing that our most precious resource is one another. Landscape of Mothers is a map for utilizing our time in motherhood as a pilgrimage to ourselves, of growing alongside our children. It's a journey of the personal, the familial, the ancestral. It's many layers offer us continued insights into who we are and what we want to contribute to the world. What do we want the world to look like, for ourselves and for our children?

Ocean Jasper Palm Stone
A stone of healing, inner peace, and interconnectedness. Its swirling patterns remind us that nature is cyclical and all-powerful; all we can do is go with the flow and live in acceptance. Ocean Jasper can be used as a talisman of patience, for oneself and for others. It supports a gradual release of pent-up anger and clears emotional blockages. It helps us to take responsibility to care and nurture other humans while still meeting our own needs. This stone encourages relaxation by helping us feel safe and inspires joy by supporting us in shedding negative patterns and emotions. Ocean Jasper is a stone associated with both the elements of earth (as all jaspers are) and water. It is a best seller at the shop and each stone is unique (just as we are as mothers).
