You are planning one of the biggest days of your life, things are going to get hairy. Are you going through a little bridal anxiety? Are you ready to embrace change? Or is your engagement period not what you thought it would be? Don’t worry, you’re not alone!
You are going through a Life Changing Experience, you need to be there for it. Allow yourself to step back and take a breath. Heck, take three. Put on your comfy pants, cue the calming music and get ready to not only accept, but CELEBRATE the amazing changes going on in your life!
As Abigail Brenner writes in her book, Women’s Rites of Passage, “When we share the stories of our initiations and transformations, we inform each other about the journey. By telling our own story, we see things we didn’t see before. And by listening empathically to someone else’s story, imagining ourselves in her shows, our world is expanded.”
The Zen Bride is a workshop that gives brides-to-be an opportunity to breathe and recognize the amazing rite of passage from engagement day to wedding day. Together we will de-stress with some mediation and yoga, share our stories, feel validated, discuss our changes of identity & create and perform a meaningful ritual leaving you relaxed and refreshed and ready to complete the journey towards wedded bliss. These sessions can be one-on-one with me or feel free to gather your bridesmaids or close friends to have them help celebrate YOU.
THE ZEN BRIDE MANHATTAN
