MOTHERHOOD WELLNESS COACHING

LA LUNA MAMA is a resource to educate and empower mothers as spiritual powerhouses. We are all superheroes; wild and wise women who have already accomplished superhuman feats. We have everything we need within us- based on our unique life experiences- to create our own spiritual support system. We are all healers and medicine women. Sometimes, we just need the guidance of a good listener to help us remember this. {Hey, we're moms. We forget stuff...}

This is a place to be real- to embrace the bittersweetness of conscious motherhood, and to remember that we are not alone. We've all had those moments when we feel we're just slip slidin' away... {Insert Simon and Garfunkle lyric here}. And yet underneath it all, there is a web that connects us all: we have all had our tears and we have all experienced our triumphs. We all came from a mother, and we are all birthing- whether it be a child, a business or an idea. And we all have within us the power to manifest beyond our wildest dreams.

In my coaching sessions, I weave together personal experiences from motherhood, yoga, meditation, health coaching, whole foods, herbs + oils, and developmental + spiritual psychology to guide you in creating an environment where self-nourishment and your wise woman can thrive. 

When mothers are reSourced, our families, our communities and the entire world prospers. 

 

MY APPROACH

I help mothers foster a relationship with inner radiance, self-love, prosperity and creativity. Cultivating a practice of connection to Self that is rooted in ritual, I support mothers to confidently navigate their leadership role with themselves and their children- what I call ALPHA MAMA. Through my training as a certified Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and my work in Attachment-based science and Conscious Parenting with Dr. Gordon Neufeld and Dr. Shefali Tsabary, I bring a holistic view to the role of a Motherhood Mentor: you are the expert, I am a guide.

Motherhood is the ultimate surrender experiment, and it all begins with the right relationship.  Of course we all need and want to have the best relationship with our children and our families, but the primary relationship I am referring to here is the one with our ourselves, with our soul.  We must take care of our inner being to help us take care of our external circumstances. When we are our own sovereign, connected individuals who have a sense of agency, we have the capacity to create our inner worlds as non-reactive, as equanimous. We have an energy and vitality that aligns with who we truly are. We can be clear about our desires, so that we can accomplish every one of our goals and dreams. We can ultimately be of service.  

Your child may generally be laid-back, easy going, compliant to your requests, and swift to move through their emotional tantrums. And quite possibly they have moments (or much longer periods) where they are defiant, aggressive, clingy, demanding, angry, uncooperative, fearful or anxious. You might be hoping to feel less angry or more confident in your parenting. You might seek to understand how to set respectful and gentle limits with your child, AND learn how to stand in your ALPHA MAMA without raising your voice, harshening your demeanor, using threats, punishments, imposing consequences, or using time-outs to seek leverage to get your child to comply with your requests/demands.  You may be a new mom in your child's first 1.5 years and you haven't quite entered into any of these phases of parenting yet; however, you intuitively know that relationship is the foundation for connection and cooperation, and you just want to get a good head start.  

Irrespective of your parenting stage or current experience, we are all in this together. Children are always looking to us as mothers who live in an attitude of ”I've got this; I am your best bet".  {Even if sometimes we don't believe that ourselves}. They need to feel safe and know that no matter what is going on in the outside world, we are in the lead.  Our children do what we do, not what we say. They read, and respond to, our energy.  When we are grounded, present and rooted in our own connection and confidence, our children instinctively know this, trust us, and respond accordingly. As mothers we are divine superheroes with the most important function to fulfill. And because Motherhood is created in community, for us to rise up to meet this immense responsibility, we need to raise our energy and vitality and receive support. Just know that wherever you are in your Motherhood journey, there are tools and support to make it easier.  A LOT easier. 

By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood—and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled
