Join us at

Lauren's home

in Lombard

the first Tuesday

of every month, 10:30am-12:30pm.

What is a Family Support Circle?

This is a great family experience for mind, body, and spirit.

Our circle is designed to offer emotional and mental health support from both peers and guides,

provide simple yet effective interventions to improve your health,

and promote oneness among the community.


One of the best gifts you can give yourself and your children is the gift of self-care,

and what better way to teach children than to learn alongside them?


Children and adults separate for age-appropriate learning and a well-deserved break; however, everyone comes together to integrate and reflect.


All ages and family members are welcome!

(You don’t have to bring your kids or be a parent to join us! We encourage everyone to come!)

Why Attend?

Self-care is essential to health.

{You matter. Your health matters.}

Children learn best by example.

{If you are not showing them that you take care of themselves, they are not likely to grow up to take care of themselves.}

You can't pour from an empty cup.

{Socialization, support, and emotional release are recipes for a good parent.}

How do we change society's compartmentalization of children and parents?

{Be the change!}

Heal alongside your kids.

{Don't have kids? Doesn't matter. Heal alongside our future. Support is welcome from anyone.}

It takes a village. Welcome to the Tribe!

Event Outline

Circle Schedule is not rigid, allowing for freedom to flow with everyone's needs. All Circles include the following:

  1. All: Open Circle, Introductions, Gratitude, Intentions, Mindful Movement

  2. Separate:

    1. 𝐚. 𝐀𝐝𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐬 𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐲 (𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐊𝐚𝐭𝐲): Guided Reiki, Toaist Movement for Relaxation, Reflection, Check-In Discussion, Compassion Sharing & Grounding

    2. b. 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐧 𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐲 (𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐋𝐚𝐮𝐫𝐞𝐧): Sensory Exploration, Mindful Movement, Emotional Regulation Strategies, Emotional Intelligence

  3. All: Return to Circle Together, Share Experiences, Reflect, Affirmations & Goals

*Kids are not expected to stay separated from parents/guardians. We do not promote letting kids cry, as this creates a perceived threat in a child's mind and is also unsettling for parents. Familiarity is key. The more kids come, the more comfortable they feel being in another room. If kids interrupt, then they interrupt. No guilt allowed!

*Meditation types and subjects will change and grow as we do.

*Please arrive between 10:15am & 10:25am to allow time for everyone to get settled before starting at 10:30am. Be mindful that kids may need time to adjust to a new setting.

$30 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away. (Cash or credit at the event)

-Trauma Sessions (one-on-one)
-Shamanic Healing

Along my healing path I discovered many healing modalities to benefit myself, loved ones and of course people as a whole. Healing has a ripple effect! I learned we are all Shamans, as we are all descendants from Shamanic lineage. We are one. I was taught the medicine of Pachamama our Earth Mother. I took a vow and became a Steward of this place we call home, our Mother Earth. I also discovered yoga, meditation, Herbalism, breathwork, and also became a Reiki Master Teacher along my path.

I did not just do this for me, but to benefit the collective. I help people realize we are one and, how to reconnect to our Ancient roots as Nature intended. 

I now share these gifts in Ceremony, events, and so much more.

-Relationships & Family Dynamics
-Labor, Birth, & Parenting Guidance

During my journey to find more holistic health solutions for my family, I discovered the energetic world. I learned how to listen to the body, mind, spirit, and environment to uncover health solutions. With the right combination of knowledge and intuition, I was able to achieve a new level of health and wellness. Now, I am devoted to helping others do the same. 


My passion is helping people unapologetically and boldly live their Truth, improve their relationships with themselves and those around them, and build a strong family unit to change the way we view the world. I believe if we love ourselves, live our Truth, and spread love and light throughout the world, we can create a bright future for our families.
