Pause || The Retreat with mommying irl

Hey Momma! It’s time for you to press the pause button. Join other Black and Brown mommas as we take time out from caring for everyone else and center caring for ourselves. Enjoy an easy-going and intimate retreat weekend surrounded by beautiful mountain views. You’ll have the opportunity to choose your own adventure by attending all sessions, some sessions or no sessions. Give yourself whatever you need! Rest, recharge, and leave with a toolbox of self-care activities that can easily be integrated into your busy life. When you hit “play” you’ll be equipped to pause regularly.
