Recently I chatted to Liz and Kate, makers of the Mom Deconstructed Podcast series, also mothers and sisters-in-law. They are down to earth, funny, honest and into opening up important conversations about the realities of motherhood. Kate even shares a moment and we look at it from a self-inquiry perspective. Listen here We cover; When do we intervene as parents vs. letting children be independent. The struggle is worth it when your children are small, rather than when they’re teenagers. The value of being consistent-ish. My wish list of what I knew at the beginning of my parenting…
Spilt Milk Yoga is the book I wish I’d had when I became a mother.
I want the best for my children, like all mothers around the world. And often a little thing will get in the way of our day together being the joyful wonder that life is, and often that thing is in me. In reaction to the spilt milk of my mothering day I react; I flare up, feel hurt, angry, lonely, anxious. The spilt milk will just happen, but I want to grow my conscious response to it, and become more the person I want to be. That’s the yoga part, my inner work. It’s important but it’s not easy.
If you are a mother yearning for greater freedom to love your life while you live it, to be present to your joy and your children, then Spilt Milk Yoga is for you. If you want to connect to your own inner wisdom, (which is in there, no matter how far away from it you may feel) and thrive, not just survive motherhood, then Spilt Milk Yoga will guide you toward growing your capacity for self-knowledge, joy and purpose, not in spite of motherhood but because of it.
