Sacred Mother Care & Transpersonal Healing
The space Mara provides is absolutely refreshing. I never once felt judged in any way. I was allowed to show up in my own personal way, experience deep emotions, and share myself fully. These experiences have been pivotal in my emotional and spiritual growth.
You are held.

(pronounced oh-jus) is synonymous with immunity in Ayurveda. It is responsible for the luster in our eyes, as well as the
radiance and vitality within our energy field. Like the body’s natural honey, Ojas is a delicate and refined essence produced from the vital forces we take in.
Ayurveda explains that it takes around forty days for the essence of food to become Ojas and reach all seven tissues of the body. This is the sacred postpartum window. A forty-day time span of deep renewal and profound transformation - a time for building mama's Ojas to ensure a healthy, happy forty years to come.
It is said that abundant Ojas in the mother creates love and compassion that she passes on to her baby. When mothers receive the proper support after birth, their Ojas is strong. This vitality is then shared through the flow of her breastmilk - providing her infant with a foundation of good health. In this way, they both begin their new lives from a place of strength, love, and vitality.
I acknowledge, with respect, that the land I am on today is the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations and peoples. I recognize the Indigenous peoples as original stewards of this land and all the relatives within it.
