Honouring your true needs
The single most important act of honouring the self as a woman, mother or parent is to give back to self. Without self-nourishment, the daily giving to family, work and friends can become unbalanced and unsustainable, leaving you feeling ‘out of sorts’ or misaligned.
Maybe you’ve been feeling overwhelmed, depleted or even resentful of the never-ending, often exhausting cycles in life? Or perhaps you’re anxious facing the unknown terrain of parenthood?
To recognize when you need to be nurtured, and gift yourself with the nourishment and rest required is such necessary fuel, it will keep your engine running smoothly and sustain your energy, vitality and wellbeing. Is it time?
Time to give to yourself?

During Labour and birth, thinking ceases and Being takes over
When you draw or do art you activate the right feminine side of the brain and discover the intuitive aspect of the self. This meditative practice slows down the active analytical mind, giving rise to the space and time required for you to find your own inner wisdom.
As a labour progresses with the flow of birth hormones a woman is naturally taken to a place of simply Being, the intuitive feminine right hemisphere of the brain is activated.
