Welcome

Our gatherings are for holistic families around the Charlotte region, to simply have fun, relax and share time with other holistic families - Families practicing: Alternative & Natural Health; Attachment and Mindful Parenting

Welcome! We'd love for you to post in the Intro forum, so that we can learn about your interests and holistic passions. Please refrain from political or religious postings, as these are intensely private beliefs.

Join us!

There is already a "Homebirth" group forming. Additionally, folks can post links, discussion, make inquiries about different holistic options in the "Forum".

Feel free to make "Blog" posts about topics of interest, also.

There is a "Member Resource" forum for business contact information, advertisements, WAHMs, where to find holistic resources, recommended books, etc.

Glad you are here. Hope to meet you all soon! Join us for our monthly Moms Night Out on the first Tuesday at 7:00pm. Post playgroups or other events for folks to meet up!
