A few years ago as I was going through my process of excavating self and evolving my inner mother(I now know this is what I was doing, but at the time I didn't know it) - I was stuck because I kept avoiding the conversation around the relationship with my mother.
In our culture we often hear "but she is your mother" as a way to shame us from having any feelings of anger, confusion or anything else that is NOT good towards our mother. I learned through Bethany Websters course "Heal the Mother wound" that this anger, confusion and shame was a construction in our society for women to be quiet and endure. However, in order to have a better relationship with myself - I could not avoid this wound any longer! This course really shifted my perspectives and gave me the anchor and support I needed to fully express myself and release the fears behind this wound. It was an honor to speak with Bethany about her body of work and how we as women can evolve.
In this episode we discuss:
Common beliefs inherited
How the Mother wound affects our lives
How we avoid the wound and how stop avoiding it
AND SO MUCH MORE!
You can find Bethany via social media:
You will find a plethora of information and insights about the mother wound and how to activate your higher self through facing this wound.

This episode shows us how much closer we are than we think. I speak to author and economist Yacine Bio-Tchane about the impetus for the writing of the book Pregnancy and Motherhood:Tale of two Afropolitains, why it was needed and how it is being received. Soon to be released in english, this book shares the traditions, trials and triumphs of motherhood across the Atlantic. The comparisons are enlightening. I hope you see that the movement for improved birthing and mothering experiences isn't just about us, but a global conversation that requires our mental, physical and spiritual backing to change the course.
