How to Deal with Back To School Anxiety.

If you’re a parent, many of our children have begun a new school year.

My little plantain started big school last week and there has been lots of conversations around self acceptance in her new (white dominated) environment. This brought up a lot of my own stuff as I have also been the only black girl in my class on many occasions throughout my life.

On my journey to wholeness, I learned that parenting can be a journey of empowerment when I became open to the lessons my daughters presence can teach me about my own healing.

If you found the school holidays triggering and feel ready to explore the concept of conscious black parenting, check out the video below which talks about school anxiety and also the Mindful Motherhood Masterclass on offer all this week to get you started.

The Freedom To Restart

Many of us are stuck in our perfectionism, which often means that we give up on ourselves far too quickly. We should and could ourselves with shameful thoughts and then become afraid to try again. In this session, I share the power in giving yourself the freedom to restart, no matter how many times you’ve dropped the ball.

A Tree Without Roots?

‘A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.’ Marcus Garvey. 
On the 17th August was the Honorable Marcus Garvey’s birthday. This grandfather of PanAfricanism mobilised millions of Africans around the world to stand in their power, build businesses and be proud of their history. In this session (44), I honour his legacy by sharing how doing the internal work can have a huge impact on how we practice black empowerment in business. 

 

Releasing Guilt

Do you feel guilty about focusing on your healing process? Many of us want to feel more empowered in our lives but also fear the isolation and feelings that often accompany letting go of our old lives. In this session, I share on what’s really underneath our guilt and how to release it so you can move on.

Welcome to podcast episode 41! Many of us are so use to surviving that we don’t know what it means to thrive. Why are we willing to accept surviving as a way of life?
