Monday is M.O.M.’s day-long Spirituality and Motherhood conference, which aims to highlight the transformative and spiritual dimensions of motherhood. Although spiritual awakening has been described in major life changes (e.g., religious conversion, death, illness, immigration, etc.) there has been a ‘strange neglect’ of spiritual experiencing in the extra-ordinary life transition known as motherhood. Motherhood can be seen as encompassing joy and pain, costs and rewards– an ordeal and an opportunity. Mothers themselves have described “becoming a mother” as a dramatic reorientation in how they come to see the self, others, the world, and even God. Viewed through the lens of spirituality, the daily experiences of mothering can initiate profound healing and evolution of consciousness in women who answer the call to motherhood. Visit http://www.spiritualityofmotherhood.com/ for more information.

Friday, M.O.M.’s the site of artist Charlotte Ghiorse‘s art opening, 5-7 pm.

Join us Saturday mornings for Music in My Language program, intended for Russian speaking children (ages 0-3) and their parents, Saturdays @10 am. Kids aged 5-7 are welcome for an 11:30-12:15 class.First class free.

The Museum Of Motherhood is the first and only facility of its kind, celebrating the “her”story of mothers around the world. We need your help — please make your tax-deductible contribution today! Visit the Museum of Motherhood NOW OPEN in NYC – Tues.-Sun., 10:45-6:30.
