Event: Masterclass: how we change when we become MOTHER

March 9, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

After having a baby, have you ever wondered, “What happened to me?”.
Join a Masterclass with Joni Stone, CPM, MA.
Have you ever questioned why all other mothers look so happy, and you adore you babies yet… wonder “I’m not as happy as I think I should be. And, why am I having anxious thoughts?”. “Why do I feel something is missing?”
Have you asked yourself why you can’t remember things like you used to?
I am here to tell you, you are not alone…AND, there is NOTHING wrong with you!
In fact, you are experiencing what most mothers feel. AND our brains DO change. We may feel discouraged that our former selves have vanished, but on the contrary, your brain ‘up-leveled’, and the series of hormones, challenges and brain changes are not only happening to help you care for a child, but to evolve spiritually.
Our culture defines success in motherhood as getting back to ‘yourself’ as quickly as possible, and juggling the same demands you were prior to having a baby with the extra responsibly of caring for a whole other human (or 3).
This view of motherhood is a bit patriarchal and severely short-sighted, and yet we (myself included) have bought into this paradigm.
To take a closer look and understand how and why our brains change, I integrated all my PASSIONS- midwifery, motherhood, neuroscience, psychology, spirituality and neuroscience, and researched what happens in our brains when we become a mothers.
The answers are validating AND so much more than the ‘mommy brain’ syndrome with we are all so familiar. In fact, our experiences, challenges, hormones and brains are helping us emotionally and spiritually TRANSFORM.
During this Masterclass we will:
~Take a deep dive into the mind, body, and spiritual manifestation of motherhood.
~Understand what is happening to our brains when we become mothers….and how motherhood is helping us evolve spiritually.
~Why LOVE has everything to do with it.
