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…

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.

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 shared challenges and experiences with the other Mothers in the group…
