Hey everyone and welcome back to Motherkind. The show that is going to help you navigate the massive challenges of motherhood (and life) with more acceptance, ease, joy and purpose.
This week’s episode is slightly different. It is with writer and spiritual teacher, Rupert Spira.
I'm so keen to share with you on this podcast voices, experiences and ideas from a really broad range of experts. It's such a joy for me to contemplate all of these different ideas and how they can help us on our journeys as mothers.
I loved this chat with Rupert. I'm not gonna lie, it was deeply confronting for me at times and a little bit like a personal one-to-one session, but ultimately really beautiful.
Rupert said something I can’t stop thinking about since our recording, he said that:
The most important thing we can do as parents is to model how we handle emotions and that that's way more powerful than anything we could ever teach or say.
So whether you are deep into a spiritual quest or you have absolutely no idea what to expect from this chat, I think by the end you're gonna be left with a feeling of calm.
My intention with this episode is to tap into curiosity, open-mindedness and wonder - Those can be powerful qualities - asking yourself what if I tried this, what would I experience? What would that be like?
As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.

Studies show that regular exercise not only builds your physical strength, but also boosts your mood, reduces stress and increases self-esteem. I definitely know that one of the easiest ways for me to get that serotonin flowing is through exercise.
So let's get more of that incredible post-exercise feeling with Gymondo. Gymondo is an online fitness and wellbeing platform with hundreds of 20 to 30-minute workouts.
It works brilliantly for me with programs ranging from HIT and yoga to dance and meditation. Plus thousands of healthy recipes.
Gymondo will help you make exercise a consistent part of your routine because as we all know, consistency is the key. And because Gymondo is online, it gives you the freedom and flexibility to decide when and where you work out, which, for me, is in my living room.
