Ep #150 - Motherhood and the Heroine's Journey
For the one hundred and fiftieth episode of the Happy Mama Movement Podcast, I wanted to reflect on the journey a woman must make in her life - and the three elements she needs to be able to sustain her in that journey.
Many years ago, I first came across the work of Maureen Murdoch and The Heroine's Journey. And after many years and many thousands of mama's experiences, I can see that motherhood is a Heroine's Journey:
it is the retreat into the feminine, it is the chance to reflect on what was working, it it our opportunity to heal and rebuild and redefine.
And then, through ritual, circles and self-exploration, we emerge -
more balanced, more whole, ready to do things differently.
This is the Heroine's Journey. This is matrescence.
Understanding what matrescence is and how to navigate it is like being handed a map.
Once you’ve got the map, the journey gets easier... and really, really exciting. Because it’s the making of you.
