We were lucky enough to go to The Mother Magazine family Camp this year and we had such a great time. A lot was learnt and we have already been putting things we learnt and experianced into our everyday lives.
It was so refreshing to be able to let the children run free and explore and be in the outdoors with no barriers or restictions, to know they were safe and yet not within arms reach. Not being the odd one because I breastfeed both the girls or because we wear the girls. Just support, encouragment, nourishment - exactly what we needed! It is ok not be on the same page as everyone all the time - that would just boring but to meet new people and be respected not judged understood and not alianated was so comforting!
Once again the food was fab and the way camp ran was fantastic - thats all down to Veronika, her wonderful family and of course stewards.
A sacred space was created (thank you Keeley) and the energy all around was electric. You could really feel the elements around you.
Highlights for me include baking bread with Eleanor (we normally bake when she is sleeping - I feel she is a little young but actually she isnt!) sitting by the campfire (we now do this at home with our fire pit) and the astrology workshop with Veronika - I really want to have my chart done and start reading more now!
I had better go but if you would like to know about camp (this year or even next year) then go to http://www.themothermagazine.blogspot.com/ x
