The mother / adult daughter relationship can be difficult even though both may love the other. Laurie Newkirk and her mother Marlou Newkirk had their issues rise to the point that 10 years ago Laurie co-founded a website motherrr.com (with 3 r’s) that focuses on healing this dynamic relationship. The site has gained an international following and won many awards. Mothers and daughters have responded from all over the world expressing surprise and gratitude to find out they were not alone in their struggles.
Laurie & Marlou will share how they healed their relationship and discuss strategies that have helped them and others. Topics will include handling criticism, advise giving, boundaries and finding forgiveness.
As the co-founder of motherrr.com, Laurie Newkirk has appeared on radio and TV talk shows, taught workshops and received numerous awards for her writing.
Marlou Newkirk has a doctorate from Columbia University in education and recently won two additional CT Press Club awards.

Designed to be reminiscent of a wax stamp used to seal letters, the organically shaped BREATHE charm is nestled between natural turquoise blue acai seed beads and intended to inspire self care and healing.
I love this bracelet and wear it a lot! I like the beads are not plastic but natural seeds, I feel good that it's environmentally friendly and I like that it's blue because that's the color of healing.
And most importantly, The BREATHE charm is a call to take a deep breathe (or 3!) when anxious feelings start. Deep breathing oxygenates blood causing our brain to release endorphins, which in turn helps relax the body. The other side of the charm is a old world flower design that serves as a reminder of nature.
The bracelet is hand-made in the USA using fair-trade seeds of the acai berry.
Price: $28 plus S&H (comes gift boxed with a keepsake bag)
