Event description

Description

Start your New Year off with a spark as we come together to talk truth about our mythical biological clocks. Where does the desire (or lack of desire) for children really live in us? Who shaped our early attitudes toward mothering as natural, inevitable, or even divine? And how do our current communities support or diminish those desires now?

The Good for You Gatherings are for any adult woman—single or coupled, step-parent or foster-parent, infertile or unsure—discerning the good life without children of her own. Whether childless by choice, chance, or calling, we'll share the pains and pleasures of finding our alternative purpose, mine the gifts that are distinctly ours to share, and celebrate the good news of our lives whether we ever partner, parent, or procreate.

(Who is this gathering NOT for? Women who are deeply longing for biological children or grieving their parenting status. Pushing this conversation on them would be a harmful kind of Pollyanna-ism. No ma’am. Not here.)

The gathering will start with a casual time of socializing from 7:00-7:30pm, followed by a facilitated conversation from 7:30 - 9:00pm. Heavy appetizers will be served, along with bubbly water, a signature cocktail, and wine. Please e-mail Erin Lane at heyerinlane@gmail.com with special dietary needs.

This is an evening for women to step into the circle of firelight and let our light shine. To hear and honor the complexity of one another's stories. To leave feeling empowered with truth, poetry, and nerdy SWAG. In other words, it's an invitation to show up in solidarity as our fullest selves.

*If cost is prohibitive, e-mail Erin for a pay-what-you-can rate.
