Holistic Wellness Circle

Wholeness and justice for families and friends

Moms and dads with children ages 0-5 need a break. Not just any break will do. They need a break that renews the mind, refreshes the spirit, and energizes the body. Holistic Wellness Circle is for them and their families.

Holistic Wellness Circle sessions include three activities and four agreements:

  • mindfulness of movement – light stretching with awareness of breathing
  • stillness – guided mindfulness meditation
  • heart-talk – structured dialogue for healthy connection
  • four agreements (inspired by Plum Village and Center for Courage & Renewal) — loving speech, deep listening, no fixing, and confidentiality

Renewing the mind, refreshing the spirit, and energizing the body while their children are cared for nearby allows parents to return to parenting fresh and joyful.

Holistic Wellness Circle is free and open to the public.

At the end of the Circle, donations are welcome. Organizers suggest a donation of $5 - $10 per adult and $5 per child.

Donations are voluntary and not required.

Parenting children under 6 is really hard work. Young children need constant care and attention. Holistic Wellness Circle was created by parents and grandparents of very young children. We know what it takes to cultivate and maintain holistic wellness in families with children under 6. We know that it starts with taking care of parents, including free childcare.

Skills and relationships developed through Holistic Wellness Circle can be transformative for individual wellness and family unity. Children socialize and play outdoors. Parents and grandparents get a break from childcare and restore wholeness, together with other families.

Holistic Wellness Circle began at Cocoplum Nature School in Delray Beach in October 2021.
The Circle meets weekly on Tuesdays 6:00-7:30 pm.
