Give more this Mother’s Day
In America the average amount spent per mother is $126.90*. Most of this will be spent on flowers or lunch. However this wasn’t always the case. In times gone by domestic servants were given the Sunday in the middle of lent to visit their “Mother Church” after which they would spend the day with their families. In recent times the practice lapsed but was revived following the Second World War and has spread far and wide largely due to the growth in the commercial value of the festival. This one day retreat has been designed with returning to an old style mothers day where spending time was more important than the money because “No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you – life” Anonymous.
This day is an opportunity to spend some quality time with your mother, son or daughter. Don’t look back in years to come and find yourself saying ‘I wish we’d spent more time together’; Life is short, make every moment is special!

Even though the activities of Yoga, Cooking, Dowsing and Massage have been designed with mothers and daughters/sons in mind there is nothing to stop this being a special gift to yourself.
