Mother's Day 2009

Mother's Day 2009 is almost here and we updated this info first offered in 2002. May it be of use to you and THANK YOU MOTHERS EVERYWHERE!


In honor of the true intention of Mother’s Day, Green Dove, Reiki Peace and Wellness Arts and Indiana Holistic Health Network has assembled a variety of information and resources within the Bloomington community and others from the web. Many are women’s groups working to advocate peacemaking. We hope that you honor your Mother and all Mothers today and every day, and that you find something useful here for yourself or someone you care about.
Happy Mother’s Day!
