What is Remothering?

Remothering is the work we do to deepen self-connection and step into our authenticity. It’s a form of self-care. A path of turning within.

The Formal Definition of Remothering is

remothering (verb)
Remothering is the process and practice of updating patterns and rewiring with intention so we can turn within to access the mother qualities we seek

Remothering is

Remothering is a path of turning within to access the nurturance, belonging, wise counsel, protection, connection, acceptance, love, and all of the mother-qualities we naturally seek. Remothering is about us and future us. It’s not a report card on the parenting we did or did not receive; though, our personal histories will inform our remothering journeys.

As we travel our remothering journeys, often times we’ll find:

  • Deeper self-connection
  • Relief
  • Quieter mind (less mental chatter)
  • Kinder mind (less hijacked thoughts)
  • More aligned boundaries (even with boundary-impaired others)

Remothering is a process because there are steps we can take to develop our ability to turn within to access the mother-qualities we seek. Learning about the process often opens the door to breakthroughs and change.

It is also a practice. Just like we had to tie our shoes many times before that pattern moved into our muscle memory, lasting transformation happens when we automate our patterns with repetition. It’s also a practice because we keep returning to the work again and again as we reach different milestones and phases in our lives.

The Remothering Journey

Navigating the space between what once was and will be is hard, but worth it. Our brains are calorically expensive, which means our natural human behavior is to continue in the patterns we know. Breaking free from outdated patterns and rewiring with intention is a journey. But you already have within you to thrive forward. What we offer here are maps, guides, and support for the journey.

Resources for the Remothering Journey was created as a resource to support you on the journey. For more, check out the articles on the blog, the classes, and sign up for our newsletter.
