What is My Task in this Mothering Moment?

By | Blog | 2 Comments

That dark shape in the mid­dle of this pic­ture is a nest. And on that nest is a moth­er black­bird. And under that moth­er black­bird was an egg that is now a baby black­bird. We have watched over the last four weeks while the nest and its inhab­i­tants have been thrashed about in the branch­es, storm-tossed by wind, drenched by rain, and pelt­ed by hail. It is amaz­ing that the nest has with­stood the ele­ments and that the egg and chick stayed on board. Through all of the tumult that wee mum has held relent­less­ly to her task. Alfred Adler…

It has been a week since I attend­ed of the Spilt Milk Yoga Week­end Work­shop. Dur­ing the course of the week I have found myself with a smile on my face, reflect­ing on the warmth and under­stand­ing I felt dur­ing the the work­shop, and per­son­al growth and insight I per­son­al­ly gained.

One of the best tools a moth­er can have under her belt; a space to reflect, unpack, learn and grow as an indi­vid­ual and moth­er, all in a safe space. And led by a soul you’ll be so lucky to encounter. Cathryn tru­ly under­stands moth­er­hood in all it’s exhaust­ing monot­o­ny through to it’s all-encom­­pass­ing joy. I enjoyed the struc­ture of the course; the flow, the meditation/mindfulness, jour­nalling, the size of the group (safe, reas­sur­ing space). Tru­ly felt like no judge­ment from oth­er moth­ers expe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar and yet dif­fer­ent jour­neys.”
