In our discussion on Radiance + Ritual, Mimi Young and I went into some of the ways this "wound" has shown up for us personally, as well as some interectional collective sociatal implications.
Regardless of the personal relationship your have/had to your birth mother, we all hold certain archtypes and imprints in our psyche. Patterns in the collective reveal unhealed aspects in our relationship to our Mother, The Feminine, the Earth + nurturing and rest. Its complex + not exclusive to Motherhood or having a female body.
Please sit with these questions to deepen your own inquiry + healing. This is for your exploration + there is no right or wrong way to approach this. I acknoledge not everyone has a mother, but for sake of these questions, please supplement the word mother so that it makes sense for you, identifying your closest caregiver or "mother" figure.
Describe relationship to your birth mother. If you did not know your birth mother, explore your feelings around this and write about yout closest caregiver or mother figure.
