mothering as initiation, Mother Nature as guide
Rewild Mothering is a 90-day group program reclaiming mothering as a revolutionary act, with sacred responsibility to protect and sustain life on Earth.
The group weaves together modern research in the fields of ecopsychology, nature therapy, expressive arts therapy, motherhood studies, and multicultural ecofeminist theory with ancient wisdom of the more than human world and participant’s own ancestral motherline to help mothers root into who they are and their mothering work.
Grown out of Dr. Allie Davis’ interest in exploring what conditions best support mothers through the disorienting period of matrescence, the developmental transition of mothering, the group uses metamorphosis as metaphor for the wild initiations of becoming a mother (and a mother again), naturalizing the growing pains of finding one’s own empowering form of maternal practice.
You deserve to be held through the initiations of mothering. Both the Rewilding Mothering group, podcast, and individual counseling and coaching hold space for you to explore paths and practices that support and guide you as you grow into the mother you envision for yourself, your family, and our planet.
