Motherhood comes with a lot of expectations, both spoken and unspoken. Passed down from generation to generation, we inherent so many unconscious beliefs around what it means to be a good mother and woman.

Matrescence, if honoured correctly, can change that.

Matrescence is an invitation to examine not only who you used to be, but who you are becoming. It’s a chance to look at your lineage, and decide how you want to create your future.

It’s the time in your life when you get to look at who you were, and who you want to be.

Nagma Dawn is a mama of three who walked into one of my workshops a number of years ago with a tiny baby in her arms, and an open heart. She wanted to know more. She wanted to understand who she was now. She felt the stirrings of something within her – a desire to step back from the corporate career she’d been pursuing – but she wasn’t sure what it was… or if she could do it.

In this episode, Nagma shares her story of finding herself through creativity and courage. It will inspire you to look within at your own stories and expectations, and be ready to explore who might be there underneath all of those expectations.

You can read Nagma’s first children’s book – Arya’s Flying Dreams – here, and explore your creativity through her work at Creative Mama.
