    Media, Expectations and Motherhood.

    in Women

    The expectations that we have on oursleves as mothers is large, we can all agree on that - but is it real?  The media feeds us with images of how we should look, feel and live from a very young age.  The images of motherhood are often unrealistic while the reality of motherhood is vastly under-represented.   These expectations are reinforced every which way we turn,  causing women to try to hide their reality and persisit on 'keeping it together'.  As you transition into Parenthood, you transition into a stage of life that challanges and changes your identity, your values and your relationships.  Not expecting these changes can greatly affect your life, often leaving women feeling they have underachieved, confused and even depressed - but it's in this vulnerability that we can truly connect - and create our new tribe.


    Elly Taylor is a Physcologist who noticed that her story and many of her clients stories were not dissimilar, they were drowning in parenthood, feeling that something was wrong with themselves, their partner and their relationship. After studying the research available she discovered that there was a lot of research on the subject but it wasn’t translating into practical support in the community, so she wrote her book Becoming Us which has become a bench mark book on the subject. www.empoweringmotherhoodradio.com

    Motherhood... The Key to Civilization

    in Culture

    The Mothership has landed! “Motherhood is the key to creating a thriving, healthy, prosperous civilization, because mothers produce both male and female children and are the first teachers of all mankind.”


    Mothering is the oldest profession and the most revered among civilized societies. All civilized people realize the value of the mothering aspect of life and invest heavily in the conscious development of females, for in this the nation becomes strong. Mothers cannot escape the responsibility they have. Mothers are supremely responsible for the character development of her children both males and females.


    How can a man born of a woman ever be superior to her or subjugate her? Is not this belief a pathology born of an inferior comprehension of life? Males and females are by nature equal and must learn to calibrate their being in harmony so that they can create a world of peace.


    Our guest joining us tonight is author of the book, "Journey From Lunatic to LunaQueen." and "Selma The Spiritual Significance of the Right to Vote Movement: Helen "Myeka" Edmond-Bevel, and, author of Slavery: The African American Psychic Trauma, When Nations Gather, and The Female Solution Naimah Latif.


    “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.”
