Description

Join us for an evening themed on Mothering - Conversations to inspire compassion & understanding

This inspirational event is not just for the mothers out there. We will be exploring all aspects of motherhood and mothering. Our speakers will be dropping knowledge and wisdom about the nurturing roles many of us play in our lives, whether we have children or not. You will gain deep respect for the experiences of Mothering and being Mothered.

We will have beer and wine available by donation so bring some coins or small bills :) and proceeds will benefit the Aboriginal Mother Centre Society in Vancouver. The Aboriginal Mother Centre is dedicated to moving at risk mothers and children off the streets and provides the support, tools and resources a mother needs to rebuild her health, self esteem and skills to regain and retain her child. The centre is grounded in a grass roots setting and creates a healing community to nurture children and families, helping them become vital members of their communities.

As always, we will also be collecting in-kind donations of new and gently used toiletries for the DTES Women's Centre. Please bring what you can!

We have three fantastic women on deck for the evening:

Hillary McBride is a PhD Candidate at UBC and a Registered clinical counsellor living and working in private practice in Vancouver. Her research and clinical work focuses on women's experiences across the developmental lifespan from a feminist perspective, including motherhood, the transition to motherhood, mother/daughter relationships, women's relationships with their bodies, and trauma. She was recently awarded the International Young Investigators Award for her work in human sexuality, and recently published her first book with Post Hill Press entitled Mothers, Daughters, and Body Image: Learning to Love Ourselves as We Are. The book explores how we as women can change our relationships with our bodies, and how this is connected to our relationships with other women- particularly our mothers. Hillary's research has been recognized by the American Psychological Association and the Canadian Psychological Association. Her next book "Embodiment and Eating Disorders: Theory, Research, Prevention and Treatment" is out in June 2018, and is a feminist and existential approach to eating disorders. Learn more about her work at www.hillarylmcbride.com, or follow her on Instagram @hillaryliannamcbride or on twitter @hillarylmcbride.

Stephanie Jhala is a multidisciplinary force in the realm of business strategy, social impact and leadership. She brings over a decade of experience in Strategy, Corporate Social Responsibility, Sales & Marketing, and Culture. She propels purpose-driven companies with a bold vision to make a difference in the world. Upon becoming a mother, Steph used her leadership coaching skills to build a community of empowered mamas (@allthemamafeels on Instagram & Facebook) and is now elevating mothers in their postpartum journey. Her experience travelling to over 30+ countries has shaped her lifetime commitment to creating a sustainable and socially thriving planet. In her spare time, Stephanie loves to adventure in the backcountry forests of beautiful BC, collect ethnic treasures from around the world, and experience the humility and triumph of diverse cultures who have overcome struggle. She believes you’re never too old to have fun... costume parties, cartoon voices, and impromptu strange dancing are always a good idea.

Taraneh Erfan King is a mother of two magic humans, a poet, writer, yoga and meditation teacher, who has also made a living as a personal and leadership development professional, registered clinical counsellor and expressive arts therapist. Recently the questions she has been pondering the most are: (1) Are her day to day decisions supporting her family's needs while allowing her to pursue her dharma? and (2) How much coffee will she need to succeed today? Alas, navigating the road to fulfillment and peace is not always simple, but always worthwhile. Whether at home, in a yoga studio or boardroom, in workshops or one-on-one work, Taraneh is passionate about creating spaces for people to be at peace with the full range of human experiences and supporting them to cultivate their ability to live mindfully - in response to life, rather than in reaction to it.

See you there,

Mags and Tave
