kindred mamas

Born out of a personal need for intentional community along with a realization that she was not alone in the isolating aspects of motherhood, Nichole planted the seeds in 2018 to lead a monthly gathering for ladies living in Chicago’s north side neighborhoods.

Kindred Mamas is a supportive sisterhood that exists to honor the growth that mothers experience alongside their developing children. We gather to create sacred space to express the frustrations and elations that occur along this journey. We encourage a consistent devotion to ourselves to ensure healthy personal & spiritual growth, that, therefore, reaches to our families. Through this self-acknowledgement, self-exploration, and self-care we hope to ensure a more positive path for our community.

Sign up for the next gathering below!

You’re invited to Nichole’s home in Rogers Park every third Saturday from March – August for a morning of supportive self-care. 

Each gathering will leave you feeling nurtured and restored through kinship, meditation, a group tarot/oracle card reading & discussion, and art making. Come and co-create sacred space with the intention to recenter and recharge.

To make this experience accessible to all, and to cover costs for materials, refreshments, and time, the participation fee is on an equitable sliding scale.

$7 – community supported (three spots available)

$20 – community supporter 

$25 – pay it forward community supporter 

Due to her work as a postpartum doula who is frequently in close contact with newborns, and out of respect for anyone immunocompromised, Nichole may require that participants wear masks, depending on how Cook County Covid case numbers are during that particular month. 

Join us for August’s gathering: 8/20

For the final gathering of the season I am inviting mamas and their children to join us in Circle. Communing will begin with a quick moving meditation and then the children may play while parents chat. I may even pull a tarot card to keep the conversation flowing.

Because of the informal nature of the circle I will not be asking for admission, but if you have time/energy please feel free to bring a snack to share. I will provide tea and a baked good.

We will gather at neighborhood park, exact location will be included in confirmation email. Sign up below to reserve your spot by Fri 8/19.
