Mama on the moon was conceived around 18 months ago after completing a foundation course in Psychosynthesis. I peeled the onion layers back and found the core of my wounding. It involved the mother line and some pretty heavy daddy issues. Having a breakdown whilst mothering was so challenging and I felt so alone and isolated. I didn’t know where to turn. I needed nurturing and I needed to nurture my child at the same time and I just didn’t know how to fill myself up. Despair and a strong need to escape followed. I got angry with myself as I knew why everything had fallen apart, revealing the simple bond of mother and daughter, a connection that needed to be nurtured every single day.

During my course I was told I was over identified with being a mother, leaving no room for growth in other areas. I was exhausted and creatively dead. I needed to find my life force again. I looked in a few wrong places for this – Women who aren’t in touch with their life force can be a little bit wild!
Having a child was such a mirror for my internal world.. I struggled most days to look in that mirror. I felt I had nothing to give her. But I believe in the power of connection and creativity, slowly I became stronger and my grip loosened. I relaxed into the mothering dynamic and made some space for my creative expression. It has been transformational and I do feel my purpose is linked to finding and nurturing sacred expression. There is so much power is expression but most of us are scared of it.
The aim of this site is to inspire women to live their truth, find their power and ultimately express it. Too many of us are lost, confused and starved of our truth. We hope to inspire wellbeing, health, creativity, spirituality and connection. xx
