‘Circle of Moms’ at NUR Space Wellness Sanctuary in Hastings-on-Hudson
Caryn Davis with her family
The NUR Space wellness sanctuary, in Hastings-on-Hudson, hosts a “circle of moms” the first and third Tuesday of each month at 8:15 p.m.. Moms of all types—working moms, stay-at-home moms, and moms of kids of any age—are welcome to join the circle, where members offer support for each other, share stories about motherhood, and hold space for those who need it.
“We typically go around and briefly introduce ourselves, and then usually there’s a predetermined mom-related topic we discuss, like guilt, rage, sex or me-time,” says Caryn Davis, co-founder of NUR Space. “Usually we discuss a topic—and it’s been known to go off-topic happily if a mother is in need of support with something else—for a month. The first meeting we’ll talk about it, and at the second meeting we’ll take 10 minutes to free-write about it and then share our pieces (if we wish) with one another.”
The circle is free to attend and currently still virtual, although members try to get together in person every other month, Davis says.
Currently a stay-at-home mom of two, Davis was an elementary school teacher before having children. “I love being a mother, but I’m not shy about how hard it can be at times,” she says. “I’m excited about hosting a safe space for moms to be their authentic selves.”
