More about Bethany...
My primary focus is on educating women on the importance of healing the mother wound and providing the coaching necessary to navigate the healing process. This work is the result of my own healing journey which has spanned over a decade.
It all began at the age of 19 after finding myself unexpectedly pregnant and making the decision: "I cannot give birth to someone else until I have first given birth to myself." Having the abortion started me on an intense path of personal growth that including long-term depth therapy, self-help techniques, the study of meditation and the spirituality of the divine feminine. However, during the early years I avoided the mother wound because it felt just too painful to face. I continued only addressing the symptoms and surface problems that resulted from it.
However, when I finally felt strong enough to focus directly on healing the mother wound and all the pain surrounding it, I began to experience the most profound, life-changing shifts in myself, in my relationships and in my spirituality as well.
Through going through this healing process myself, I realized that for every human being, the very first wound of the heart happens at the site of the mother, the feminine. And through the process of healing that original wound, our hearts evolve from a compromised state of defensiveness and fear to a whole new level of love and power. In this way, the mother wound is an opportunity and an initiation into the felt experience of oneness and unity with all life.
My goal is to share with others that our wounds are not something to avoid or be ashamed of but powerful opportunities to step into our authentic truth and power.
I teach a 7-step "roadmap" for how to navigate the process of healing the mother wound. I teach this process in three different formats; an online course, workshops, and a 6-month coaching program for female leaders & entrepreneurs.
