In this episode, I'm chatting with Liz Kimball, a Creativity Catalyst, writer, speaker, and Founder of The Collective, a network of feminist creators dedicated to fostering cultural change through creativity.
In this episode we chat about:
How Liz is expressing a “generational voice” that hasn’t been able to be fully heard in her family lineage until now.How raising babies can be the greatest creative work of our lives, but it’s still important to nourish our creativity beyond that act aloneThe paradox of postpartum when we feel a mismatch of creative energy and creative capacityHow the space of ‘no longer, but not quite yet’ is a fertile space for the transmission of ancestral wisdom and insightThe parallels between the pandemic experience and entering into motherhoodHow worry is a loud siren wanting our attention at all times, and how we need to disconnect from it in order to show up for both our children and our creative processHow Liz incorporates her creative process into her life as a motherHow creative expression can help us regulate our nervous system, and why it’s important to have a ‘place to land’ with your creativity as a motherHow showing up for ourselves regularly to nurture our creative voice can be an exercise in reparenting and building trust with our intuitionStrengthening the relationship you have to your own inner voice to hear the ‘sound of the genuine’ and separate it from the noise of motherhood

A radical mother is a woman poised in her power ready to disrupt cycles of generational trauma running through her family like wildfire. She's working to improve her life, the lives of her children, and shape the landscape of her community. If that's you - you're in the right place.
This podcast is designed to connect you with resources, inspiration, and the reminder that you are not alone as you embark on your journey of radical mothering.
I’m your host Christa Bevan and I’m a certified TRE provider (which stands for tension & trauma releasing exercises), trauma-informed yoga instructor, and also a dynamic self-care coach for moms. And of course, a fellow radical mother. My approach to this work blends neuroscience-backed tools and heart-centered intuition.
