With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, there is lots of emphasis on celebrating mothers (as there should be). But for most women, our relationships with our mothers are complex and often conflicted. And for some women, these relationships have been a source of distress.
That's why we're so honoured to be able to share with you our recent interview with colleague Rosjke Hasseldine. Rosjke helped us map our own maternal history a couple of years back and we found it enlightening, healing and empowering to identify the legacy and patterns (both positive and negative) that have been passed down to us through the generations.
In this week's episode of Red Tent Sisters, the podcast, we explore:
- The root cause of why mother-daughter relationships can be so challenging
- The importance of energy flowing forward to the next generation rather than backwards
- Why Amy started calling herself "The Lady of Perpetual Guilt" when she became a mother
- The value of learning your family's "emotional legacy"
- How the absence of rituals and rites of passage has impacted mother-daughter relationships
- The power of mother-daughter relationships (motherhood is what inspired a new life path for both Rojske and Amy)
Rosjke Hasseldine, of www.motherdaughtercoach.com is the world’s pre-eminent mother-daughter relationship expert, author of “The Silent Female Scream”, Huffington Post Blogger, and creator of The Mother-Daughter Empowerment Model. Her next book is out later this year.
