Welcome lovely mama…
I’m Natalie, Mama of 2 young girls, step mama of two big girls and expecting my third little one late Spring 2017. I’m delighted that you have found your way here, as I am passionate about helping mamas find the magic in the monotony of motherhood.
I write about gentle parenting techniques based on my Steiner/ Waldorf studies incorporated with my own perspective & experience of soulful intuitive mothering.
I offer mama mentoring sessions for mamas (and women) looking to find flow & more joy in their daily life.
Are you seeking to feel more grounded and see more flow in daily mamahood? One of easiest first steps you can take is a simple daily meditation practice……Check out my 3 minute mama meditations here.
I love connecting with other mamas, please feel free to drop me a note here.
- Childhood is to be Cherished – A time when our young children are forming both their physical body as well as their subconscious and conscious beliefs. It is up to us as parents to provide nourishing experiences during this time, to speak for what we believe in and not just settle for what our society suggests as suitable for children.
Motherhood is Sacred – A rite of passage that opens us to deep connected relationship and an extraordinary opportunity of personal development. Our children are the most incredible teachers of being in the moment: always calling our attention back to the here and now, and away from our minds tendency to live in the past and worry about the future.
In finding the magic in the monotony of everyday – through simple acts of creativity built into motherhood, whether it be in our kitchen through the meals we make, tending a small potted herb garden, collecting flowers for our meal table or indulging our inner child with handcrafts.
- The Kitchen is the Heart of our Home – The way in which we grow, source, prepare and eat our meals is sacred work and an opportunity to practice mindfulness & gratitude. By involving our children in the growing and preparing, we foster in them a deep appreciation of the bounty of our earth & a connection with nature.
