Chapter Launch Party is coming soon! January 22!

We've gotten a great response to our chapter launch party from holistic-minded businesses and will have some really fun door prizes to offer including gift certificates for massage and yoga classes, organic soaps and lotions and a pedometer. There will also be an opportunity for on-site yoga consultations, pause for breath and relaxation with guidance from Stair of Little River Yoga.

Anyone is welcome to attend the Chapter Launch Party and Open House -- that includes moms, dads, partners, grandparents, care providers and anyone interested in learning more about natural family living. Children are always welcome at HMN meetings. At most meetings, children will be able to play in the center of the circle or outside the circle. At the Open House, which we expect to be busy, we'll create a play corner with toys provided (and folks are welcome to bring their own, too). However, fair warning that this open house event is likely to be crowded and abuzz with activity!

Anyone wishing to help with set-up for the Open House is welcome to come at 7:00 or earlier -- just email Jessica at holisticmomsarlalex@gmail.com to let me know what you're up for. If you're not in volunteer mode, plan to arrive right at 7:15 to sign in, meet other like-minded mamas and friends, get a snack, peruse the door prize offerings, and, if you wish, strike a pose on a yoga mat or take a pause on a meditation cushion. We'll hope to settle by 7:30 or so into a seated circle. I'll welcome the group, share a bit about the history and vision of Holistic Moms Network and then begin a round of short introductions, which will always begin our meetings. There should be a little more time for snacks and milling after we close the intros with door prize giveaways!

A few giveaways will be held for future meetings for members only. Join now in the month of January and save $5! See the post below for more details or go directly to the national website: http://membership.holisticmoms.org/ and type in NEWYEAR for the coupon code.

Hope to see you on January 22!
