Find Your Tribe!

Welcome to the Northern Virginia chapter of the Holistic Moms Network. Our purpose is to generate national awareness, education, and support for holistic parenting and to provide a nurturing, open-minded, and respectful community for parents to share these ideals. There is no checklist or litmus test of "holistic enough." HMN welcomes anyone who is interested in holistic health, natural parenting and/or green living. Please take a moment to browse the posts and learn a little more about us. As always, feel free to contact co-leaders, Alexa & Laurie, at HMNofNOVA@gmail.com with any questions or for more information.

We are a warm and inclusive group, and welcome you to join us wherever you are on the holistic path in an environment that does not judge. Come as you are!

Coming Soon...The SPA!!!!

It's almost here...one more week until the 2nd Annual Mother's Day Spa!

We have a line up of wonderful local practitioners to provide mini sessions of massage, Reiki, Feldenkreis, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), yoga, facials, makeovers...the list goes on! We will have local herbal teas, a wonderful informational area about non-toxic nail treatments, and samples of local and natural products. What better way to give back to a group of beautiful women who deserve to be cared for as they care for others every day?

Tuesday, May 4th from 6:30-8:30 pm, join us to relax and rejuvenate! We will be at our regular location - please see that information to the right. This evening will be babes in arms only. Please use this opportunity to truly relax and have a partner, spouse or friend care for you children while you enjoy your time with us.

This event is FREE for members. A five dollar tax deductible donation is suggested for non-members. Please sign up now through the local Yahoo group for treatments if you are a member. Non-members will be able to sign up for treatments at 6:15pm on the evening of the spa. We look forward to seeing you there!

TWO years of HMN of NOVA

I can't believe it has really been 2 years since we started this chapter, but here we are! We have made so many wonderful friends and formed such a supportive community. Thanks to all who have been a part of it so far! As always, keep suggestions and ideas coming as this is YOUR chapter. We had a lovely time celebrating this milestone with many old and new friends.
