Together We Bloom
When you support this group, this group supports you.
We are social beings—relationships with others influence self-improvement.
“It’s much easier to go through life knowing there is a safety net.”
We women, wives, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, aunties and sisters are taking care of so many people around us. Days pass, and although we know all the things we want and need to do to care for ourselves, these things rarely make it to the to the top of the priority list. We are often too busy with never-ending to-dos for the ones we love. While we may be in different homes, communities and countries, we share this similar need–to find support to take care of ourselves and to put our needs at the top of the list. Drawing inspiration from the Okinawan moai, the main intention of this service is to connect and empower women to find time, space and motivation to take care of their well-being while supporting others who are doing the same.
What is “moai”?
The term “moai” comes from Okinawa, Japan and means “a group of people who meet for a common purpose.” People create a moai in order to come together and support one another. This tradition is considered to be one reason why Okinawans enjoy such incredible longevity.

Inspiration behind this service
Growing up in Brazil, I remember going to gatherings with my father, his 10 friends and all their children. As a kid, these events felt, to me, like a party! There was always lots of food and heart-felt conversations among the adults, and we kids ran and played the entire time.
Only later in life did I learn that these once-a-month gatherings were actually a type of moai. While we kids played, the adults were encouraging and supporting one another. With relationships rooted in trust and respect, they were sharing their life joys and life struggles.
Over the course of my life, and especially when my dad got sick, I witnessed how the moai’s circle of support uplifted everyone. Its effects were so positive for me and my family and our friends that it’s a practice I love to share with others.
Not sure if this service is for you? Or would you like to understand more about it? Please choose the best day and time and I would be happy to give you a call to answer any questions you may have about “moai” or myself.
