Motherhood is an ongoing journey and transformation.
For many mothers, motherhood is a battleground of impossible standards, lip service instead of actual support, and remothering oneself while mothering littles. It can be triggering, frustrating and exhausting. In many spiritual communities, we pay homage to Divine Mothers while neglecting actual mothers.
But mothering can also be a site of liberation, alkhemy and transformation. Being fully present to the lessons and experience of mothering is a spiritual initiation in and of itself.
In this course we honor the full and wild spectrum of mothering. We will learn how to attune ourselves to our own soul journeys while providing the deepest presence possible for our children. We listen to our rage, nourish ourselves deeply, and witness the miracles of transformation in our relationship to mothering. We will weave visions of our lives that weaves the needs, desires and destinies of our children and ourselves together harmoniously.
We will explore the conflicts, doubts, and fears that we navigate as mothers. We will learn how to receive the support we desire. We will walk in our mothering centered in the truth of our abundance and bliss.
I created this course because I became a mother at 19 (my eldest is 18 now). Poor, Black, unsupported and traumatized, mothering has been both exhilaratingly joyful and exquisitely painful. As a mother of 5, I have experienced a full spectrum of violence and triumph surrounding motherhood, and I have had to learn how to be in relationship with myself while learning how to mother.
It's important to understand that this is NOT a course on how to become a 'better' mother. It is a course on being the miracle of YOU while mothering.
No matter what you have or may be going through as a mother, this class offers an unsurpassed level of support for mothering the way you want to, while also being true to who you are.
