The ReMothering Process: Transforming The Mother Wound Through Radical Self-Love
In this experiential daylong workshop you will gain clarity on what the mother wound is, how it has affected your life and how you can develop a more compassionate relationship to your pain, allowing it to become a source of power and strength. Kara will walk you through “The ReMothering Process”, a powerful eight step system that is designed to address and transform the emotional, spiritual, mental, energetic and sometimes physical trauma related to this core pattern of wounding.
` Are you an Unmothered, undermothered or motherless woman? ` Was your mother (or mother figure) emotionally or physically abusive? ` Was she unkind or overly critical? ` Did she neglect you or ignore you? ` Did she abandon you emotionally or physically? ` Was she struggling with addiction, depression or anxiety? ` Was she so overwhelmed by her own issues that she wasn’t able to be there for you in the way you needed her to be? ` Or perhaps she was a good mother, but not very grounded or confident in herself.
This work is for all women, even if your relationship with your mother was loving. As women, the relationship we have with our mothers as young children sets the stage for everything in our life – how we feel about ourselves, whether or not we see the Universe as a friendly or hostile place, our ability to trust ourselves and others and our ability to live a happy, healthy and abundant life. The relationship with mother is the template for all other relationships in our life, especially with other women.
Ideally when we are very young and growing up, mother is a nurturing, steady, loving, supportive force in our lives, enabling us to feel safe, loved, cared for, strong and capable. In order to do this, she would need to be self-confident, loving and accepting herself completely and present and grounded the majority of the time. Most of the time, this is not the case, as no person is steady and grounded all of the time, life is fraught with challenges that knock us off our center, and mothers are human, after all, with their own unresolved wounding. If this fundamental relationship dynamic of containment and unconditionality is missing or flawed, we will likely grow up with some or all of these issues: feeling unsafe, unworthy, overly critical of ourselves and others, with low self-esteem, having difficulty trusting and having healthy relationships with others. We may have issues with depression, anxiety, addiction, difficulty saying no, and we may have chronic anger issues and toxic shame. We will do all kinds of things in order to get the love that was missing in that primary relationship, including settling for people, places, things and situations that are not good for us, trusting those who should not be trusted, hiding our light and our truth and not living up to our full potential. Thankfully, this core wounding can be corrected.
In this daylong workshop I will take you through a powerful, proven 8 step process including the creation of a loving inner mother. This powerful work will help you begin to heal your emotional scars, transforming them into deep wisdom and self-love. Your emotional pain holds your power and as you transform your relationship to your pain, you gain more access to this innate power.
Some of the symptoms of the Mother Wound:
feelings of worthlessness
chronic fear and worry
feelings of unworthiness
boundary issues (trouble saying "no")
Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.
