Mom’s Commencement Classes!

support for moms whose kid has left the nest

What is it?

A supportive community of moms sharing & learning together while moving into the next phase of life with ease. Connect in a safe community of moms committed to compassionate growth. Increased goodness, heal current or past hurts, and stand in your truth. Offered by Somatic Experiencing Practitioner & Coach, Katie McClain.

Why Mom’s Commencement Classes?

We need each other! Connection with other humans is profoundly healing and settling - even if you're an introvert! **This is a supportive community. Guidelines will be in place to make this experience safe, compassionate, and transformative.** With your child off to college, your community of fellow parents may have shrunk. This is an opportunity to meet other moms like yourself while learning new tools and maybe even healing some old hurts. Join a safe place to share your struggles and celebrate what’s working! We will work on somatic awareness & learn mind-body tools that help restore everyday goodness!

Where & When?

We’ll meet in six classes that happen twice per month from September through November 2017. Plenty of support during the first 3 months your child is away! To make these 6 classes the most accessible...

  • One class per month meets in person at a comfortable, private home in the Los Angeles area.
  • Alternating with one class per month that meets via a private video chat room. Join these 3 additional classes from anywhere!

My name is Katie McClain. I’m a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Somatic Life Coach with 25+ years of experience. I offer a unique & gentle mind-body method to support clients to feel better so they can do better in life. I provide safety and compassion while sharing methods that will help you heal and/or transform areas of your life where you feel stuck. If you’re experiencing the emptiness of a child who has left home for college, a gap year, or your child has left home to set out on their own, I’d love to have you the Mom’s Commencement Community.

Is your child leaving for college? Are you feeling chaos, overwhelming sadness, or fear?

What you can expect / what's required to join the Mom’s Commencement Classes

  • Six gatherings with other moms to support you through the first 3 months your child is away. (see box for dates). Attendance at all 6 classes and participation during specified hours of each class is required.
  • A complimentary one on one session with me to get support in any area of your life. Info will be shared enabling you to schedule your session during the 3 months of the program.
  • A private, safe, and sacred space. I'm committed to providing compassion and a loving, safe space to meet you where you ARE and where you are NOT during your transition to empty nester. Full participation toward your growth as well as compassion and understanding for what your fellow classmates are working through is required.
  • Somatic awareness & learning that will increase resilience and help you grow your capacity for handling stress. A new connection and understanding of your body's messages. The result of the learning and new capacities is aliveness and so much yummy goodness!
  • This type of group learning creates a special opportunity for growth. Other participants will bring up things from their life that may end up being either supportive or a trigger for you. A commitment to privacy within the group is a must. I will provide guidelines that supports you and others during our first class. Adherence to the guidelines are required.
  • We'll learn about the autonomic nervous system, tune into our own nervous systems, and begin to understand and use tools that will create improved nervous system health. With this learning, opportunities for releasing built up stress and/or trauma will be available. Releasing stress and trauma loosens stickiness. It's a beautiful thing!
  • A Secret Facebook Community to stay in touch, share successes & ideas, and get support from each other as needed.
  • Guided meditations, experiences, and activities, plus take-away tools you can use once class is over.

SPACE is LIMITED to 8 Participants!
