How do you practice your art of mothering?
Attunement is my one word answer. I find that kids have such a clear guidance system for those around them, they tell you in action, sound and sometime mind-melds just what they need next. But I have to be clear of my own thoughts and judgements to catch it, and very present. If I drift away in stress or fear then so too does my ability to attune to them. Attuning to them through different stages has given me insights and connection I don't think I could have found any other way!
What are the simple things in life that fill your heart?
The amazing beauty of nature. Walking by water. Good food. Yummy cheeses. A small hand holding mine is a treasure.
What is one thing you think your child loves about you?
How I hold space for her to be her. I know her human design and treat her just as she was designed to be! She would just describe it as "i love-love-love you mama."
What was one thing you gained out of your experience with Mothering Arts?
I still have dear connections from my time in Mothering Arts. It helped me feel a part of the community here as we were new to the area. We loved the games and songs, so sweet!
