Things We Don’t Talk About: Women’s Stories from the Red Tent, a film by Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost

“The mother wound isn’t something we need to avoid or feel shame about, it’s a doorway to our full power and potential.” ~Bethany Webster

"I am finally starting to step into my power and for that I am truly grateful"

"Despite being a therapist for the last 10 years, I realize now how much I was avoiding looking at this area of my life. It was only as I was getting more and more women come through my clinic mirroring this at me that this area opened up to me but I really didn't know how to delve deeper. Your course has put into words and given me clarity for everything I was feeling and experiencing and is helping me heal. Its painful, challenging, amazing and insightful, I feel like I am finally starting to step into my power and for that I am truly grateful."

Amanda Hassan-Ally, UK

"I've tried so many things but this was such a thorough, deep and life changing process. I am truly re-born."

"The journey through the modules took me all the way to the deepest abyss and back to the light. The endless "aha" moments brought forth a huge paradigm shift that catapulted me to the new level that I thought was not reachable for me in this life. I cannot thank you enough. I've tried so many things, done so much healing, took so many courses, but this was such a thorough, deep and life-changing process. I am truly re-born."

Magdalena Szpilka, Ireland

"You've put together an amazing way to safely journey through very confusing territory."

"Dear Bethany …. I don't know where to begin …. your course has made so much difference to me and I'm so grateful to you for creating it. Despite doing a lot of deep work over many years I still felt totally stuck …. as if in a sticky web. Your course opened my eyes and validated my experience in ways that made it safe to see and feel what hadn't been safe to see or feel before. I feel much safer in my own skin."

Jude, Australia

"I strongly recommend Bethany's coaching program to every woman. What a profound, ground-breaking work!"

"I would strongly recommend Bethany's coaching program to every woman. What a profound, ground-breaking work! And how lucky we are to have such a brilliant pioneer offering us a new vision on how to become more free, authentic and powerful as women. I feel deeply inspired and grateful to be part of this evolutionary step."
