In our modern society, the idea of “mothering” oneself may seem quite quaint, however, it is a potent prescription for wellness and self-actualization.
For many of us there is a lot to be attended to in order to reconcile ourselves with the experience of being “mothered” in the ways that support our wellbeing.
“Mothering” is both an individual experience of how the person we identify as our “mother” fulfilled that role as well as an archetypal ideal of care that is central to our ongoing emotional nourishment regardless of our age or stage of lives.
Sitting in group circles and engaging in processes of healing, empowerment and transformation with individuals of both sexes, I am acutely aware of the complex and formative nature of our “mother” relationship. I hold with great care the way this relationship sets the tone for how we approach ourselves on so many levels.
Our relationship with the person who “mothered” us and the way we ultimately “mother” ourselves and those we care for is layered. It is as critical as it is complicated, for it has far-reaching implications on our personal wellbeing, how we care for others and how we actualize who we are in the world.
Reflecting upon our relationship with our own “mother” as well as what attributes we associate with “mothering” helps us learn how to better provide for ourselves the nourishment, emotional attunement and self-care that supports us in living fully, authentically and navigating our lives centered and skilled.
This Celestial Cycle we will focus on our relationship to 'mothering'. We will explore the way we relate to our personal mother figure as well as the archetype of the “Mother”.
Over the next 4 weeks, I will offer perspectives and inquiries to support a view into you through these vital relationships.
Engaging in this journey will support insight on your approach to nourishing yourself; your capacity to emotionally attune to and care for yourself and others; your ability to communicate mindfully; as well as your approach to actualizing our aspirations.
Our ability to communicate with emotional integrity, clarity and compassion has deep implications on our wellbeing and relationships.
I am passionate about creating spaces to engage in personal inquiry and potent practices to support Self-Mastery.
Join me Sunday, July 24th at 8pm ET for a Self-Mastery Session on Conscious Communication.
