“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we’ve ever met.” — Marguerite Duras

What is it about motherhood that feels so unhinged, so wild or downright crazy? Author of The Book of Mother, a fictional account of her mother’s bipolar disorder, Violaine holds space for an open discussion on having a challenging mother and becoming a mother.

The event is open to all: this is a great topic for anyone interested in the Mother archetype.
Having children or being a mother is not a requirement for attendance!
