Mom Deconstructed Podcast Interview

By | Blog, Media, News | No Comments

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…

Creating Space to Process Motherhood

By | Blog | No Comments

This blog is based on an arti­cle I con­tributed to Whole Mamas and is a ver­sion of the Spilt Milk Yoga chap­ter The Shock of Birth/Embracing the Learn­ing.  Yoga teach­es us that what­ev­er our chal­lenges we can turn them into learn­ing. What makes the dif­fer­ence is our own inter­nal approach. In our respons­es we can make choic­es that increase our sense of lib­er­a­tion and love no mat­ter what the sit­u­a­tion. We can move through and beyond the strug­gle to find mean­ing in our expe­ri­ence. Here I’ll share with you some­thing of my moth­er­hood expe­ri­ence, like I do in the book,…

Audio Book Christmas Gift for You

By | News | 4 Comments

How do you want to be in your­self this Christ­mas? What is it you want to cul­ti­vate even as you meet the chal­lenges and joys of Christ­mas and fam­i­ly? Christ­mas can be a won­der­ful or chal­leng­ing time of year, or both rolled into one. We meet our fam­i­­ly-of-ori­­gin dra­mas, hopes, expec­ta­tions, dis­ap­point­ments, our edges of lone­li­ness, con­nec­tion, our habits around mate­r­i­al wealth and spir­i­tu­al health, and our aspi­ra­tions to cul­ti­vate what it means to live peace and good­will to all on this earth. This starts of course inside us, in how we treat our­selves and our chil­dren. So we’re offer­ing…

SMY Guided Self-Inquiry Day Review

By | Reviews | No Comments

The Spilt Milk Yoga work­shop was an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to put down the every­day stuff and to focus on Moth­er­hood and its chal­lenges in a space that was set aside pure­ly for those thoughts and feel­ings. The Spilt Milk Yoga day allowed me to see that despite all of the chal­lenges of main­tain­ing our­selves and main­tain­ing our ‘be a good Mum’ aspi­ra­tions, that I am doing a great job (as are the oth­er moth­ers) and that I can now tell myself that and feel it to be true. The shared chal­lenges and expe­ri­ences with the oth­er Moth­ers in the group…

Turn Burning into Learning with Self-Inquiry

By | Blog | No Comments

Spilt Milk Moments — 5 Things You Can Ask Your­self to Turn Burn­ing Into Learn­ing. Spilt Milk moments are a part of moth­er­hood. Some­times they are BIG and OBVIOUS, some­times they are small, snag­ging at your aware­ness with a lit­tle gut-tug of “Oh, some­thing about that wasn’t right.” So can we do some­thing with those moments to evolve our behav­iours, to glean a sense of progress amongst the rep­e­ti­tion of chores, to choose new respons­es rather than trip our­selves up on the same old habits and humps? Here are 5 sim­ple self-inquiry ques­tions I shared in a con­tri­bu­tion arti­cle to…
