About the event

Mother’s Day Potluck Picnic & Grief Circle

Saturday, May 13th, 1-4pm

Luella’s Lodge, Oakwood, IL

If Mother’s Day is a hard day for you, come sit with us. The Mother’s Day Potluck Picnic & Grief Circle is a space to connect and share a meal with others who are grieving on Mother’s Day.

Please join Melanie Sheckels of Threshold Doula and Carrie Hay of Luella’s Lodge on Saturday, May 13, 1-4pm. Bring a dish to share along with anything that will help you be comfortable for an outdoor event. You are welcome to bring family or a companion. Let us know how many people you plan to bring and indicate any special food considerations so that we can be assured there is something good for you to eat. After lunch, we will have the opportunity to connect and share our grief in a facilitated circle or to simply explore and be held by the land.

This event is free and:

​​​​​​​​For those of us who never got to be the mother we dreamed we’d be.​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​For those of us with dead mothers.​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​For those of us with dead children.​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​For those of us who never chose motherhood and feel diminished by this day, as though our choices are less.​​​​​​​​
