My work began when i experienced the hunger of women who could feed themselves but didn’t know how to turn on the fire. as a new mama, all i could think about (other than sleep and where did my life just go?) was all the goodness i wanted to give my son inside the beauty of what life offers in such abundance. i am his connection to this conversation, to the language of beauty and source and values in the world. whether it was a mango smoothie or screaming into a pillow to get his feelings out or to truly experience the medicine of nature or to know the source of things and so on... which meant i needed to connect with this too! i found that there were other mothers and women who wanted to have this conversation. women who are deeply craving a safe space to be vulnerable, unravel the shame, unpack the stories, the noise of life, the stuff that doesn’t serve us and we are ready to let go of creating a life that deeply nourishes them inside carpool, packed lunches and untouched dreams. my work began in feeding these women.
