​Whats Included!

Discover


what it means to be in sacred retreat with like-minded Moms receiving deep nourishment, support, and love.

Becoming a Mother is one of the most transformative experiences in a woman’s life. It is simultaneously joyful and demanding, a journey of the deepest love. Sometimes it is easy to give and give until you have little left for yourself. Maybe self-care is something you are really good at, maybe it is something that takes a back seat to everything else in your life. Each of us has our own way of adjusting to the demands of motherhood and each of us knows it takes a village. This is why The Lotus Experience was created.

We create a sacred container for you to deepen your connection with yourself, your children and the world around you. During this spacious week, you will find time to recharge, time to be in nature and time to engage in meaningful activities with your little one.

You will leave feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to embrace life as a Mom with new energy.
