    Ep 38 Gestate to Create ~ Indigo & Rose

    Ep 38 Gestate to Create ~ Indigo & Rose

    In today’s episode we explore the importance of incubation (or gestation) in the creative process. In creating Mothers at Midnight we’ve found that we needed space and time to allow our ideas to form, when we tried to push things along we inevitably ran into more challenges and things just didn’t feel right. Learning to slow down, follow the creative process and allow it to take shape in a way that feels authentic for us has been a big learning curve.

    We sat down together (well, actually we huddled by the heater with a glass of wine) to reflect on the process of creating a new project and why it’s necessary to embrace periods of gestation in all aspects of our lives.

    We chat about:
    Letting go of needing to control the creative processLearning to tune into what feels genuine and authentic and bringing our full selves to the process The link between gestation and how we birth creative projects The gifts and challenges of learning to balance being and doing and why being overly productive can hinder the creative processLetting go of perfectionism and embracing vulnerabilityTuning into the higher self and allowing it to guide the processHow to know its the right time to share our creations with othersWays to connect with us:

    Ep 37 Welcome to Mothers at Midnight ~ Rose & Indigo

    Ep 37 Welcome to Mothers at Midnight ~ Rose & Indigo

    Welcome back!
    It’s been a while since we released an episode. We appreciate your support and patience as we’ve been in the process of transforming our much loved podcast Therapeia into Mothers at Midnight.

    Our new creation grew out of the final episode of season 3 of Therapeia - “ Meeting the Dark Mother”. In this welcome episode we share a little about the journey we’ve been on, why we’re now called Mothers at Midnight and what we have in store for you in this season.

    Mothers at Midnight was created with the intention of sharing challenging, vulnerable and sometimes uncomfortable conversations about motherhood and the mother archetype in all its forms. This is a space for you to connect in and get to know yourself more deeply. We look forward to sharing the journey with you and sharing soulful conversations to open your mind and heart.

    A lot of love has gone into this season and we are so grateful for all the support we’ve received and to our wonderful guests for sharing their stories and wisdom with us.

    Ep 36 Meeting the Dark Mother ~ Indigo & Rose [creators of Mothers at Midnight aka Therapeía]

    Ep 36 Meeting the Dark Mother ~ Indigo & Rose [creators of Mothers at Midnight aka Therapeía]

    For our final Season 3 episode we invite you to make a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine and join us - the co-creators of Mothers at Midnight aka Therapeía - for an intimate, vulnerable and sometimes uncomfortable chat about motherhood. 
    This conversation arose out of a desire to speak more openly about the difficult, confronting and challenging aspects of motherhood. We noticed that when these topics start to arise we often find ourselves changing the topic, making light of it or adding how much we love our kids. We feel the pressure to be perfect, to be good mothers, and this requires us to marginalise other parts of who we are. We wanted to drop the facade, set aside the idea of the “good” mother and bring the our wild, messy, and complex selves more fully into the conversation. 
    Our hope is that in speaking to these experiences you too might feel less alone, less pressured and less self-critical in your experience of mothering. We also invite you to consider your own experience of being mothered and to consider your own mother in a new light.

    We chat about: 
    (05:48) Encountering the dark mother(19:00) What needs to be marginalised in order to be a “good” mother(21:20) Navigating identity shifts in motherhood(28:00) Learning to embrace the marginalised parts of ourselves without feeling like “bad” mothers(37:00) The good mother archetype(40:00) How our experience of being mothered shapes the way we mother(44:00) The too nice mother(47:00) The ice queen(51:45) The dragon lady(56:20) The sick mother(60:00) Grief in motherhood(1:10:00) How to work with your own inner dark motherAnd so much more…

    Ep 35 Metavision a Soul Calling ~ Christina Nielsen

    Ep 35 Metavision a Soul Calling ~ Christina Nielsen

    Today we welcome a very special guest to the show. Christina Nielson is the founder and director of Metavision Institute, a vibrant community for holistic education where we undertook our psychotherapy training (and where the idea for this podcast first began to take shape). 

    The Metavision Institute has grown out of the need to heal the effects of living in a fragmented world. The Metavision ethos is to see the universe as sacred, with laws that govern and connect everything. To see the human being through the lens of eco-spirituality, soul and body awareness and as a part of a sacred universe helps to heal despair, depression, isolation and alienation. 

    Christina has led an extraordinary life and in today’s episode we explore how following her soul’s calling led her to weave her training and practice in Social Work, Chinese Medicine, Anthroposophy and Process Oriented Psychology into a holistic model of counselling and psychotherapy as taught at Metavision today. Through her journey, we’ll explore the deep mysteries of Life and discuss how we can all learn to listen to and follow our own soul’s calling.
    We chat about:
    The wisdom of the Prayer of Surrender by Rudolf Steiner and its relevance to our current times (1:30)The incredible story of what prompted Christina to found Metavion (4:00)How to develop awareness of the signals in our life that point towards our soul’s calling (8:00)The universal impulse wanting to come through us all (13:00)How to know if we’re following the right path (14:30)How to navigate the challenges we encounter on our path (16:40)How the threads of our calling are present even in early childhood (22:00)The soul's calling as being deeper than a single goal or purpose (30:00)Working with our biography and Life Myth as a way of making sense of where we’ve come from and where we’re going (35:00)An exercise to support you to apply the lessons and wisdom of today’s topic (42:30)And so much more!
