A Most Joyful Retreat

When moms get together, it is almost always a joyous occasion. Sharing their experiences, thoughts, and feelings, they take comfort in the fact that they are not alone in their everyday struggles and are grateful for the loving support of their fellow nurturers. This is precisely what makes Mommy Mundo’s Mindful Mom Re-Treat such a haven for mothers.

A takeoff from Mommy Mundo’s award-winning Mom Manifesto campaign conceptualized and created by Mommy Mundo Founder Janice Villanueva, the Mindful Mom Re-Treat aims to refresh, re-energize, and re-center modern moms. Through a series of activities facilitated by Michele S. Alignay, MA, Registered Family Psychologist and mom of two, mommas are provided the knowledge and tools to re-examine and re-evaluate their lives based on their life goals.

Sponsored by Caltrate Plus, Pampers, and Belo Baby, the last batch of the Mindful Mom Re-Treat for the year took place at the Sarika Function Room of Dusit Thani Manila. Here, snaps of the happy retreat participants.
