The Radical Mother Village Podcast with Christa Bevan
A Radical Mother is a woman poised in her power ready to disrupt cycles of generational trauma that runs in her family like wildfire. Dedicated to transcending these cycles of trauma to change our lives, the lives of our children, and the landscape of our communities, radical mothers get out of bed each morning prepared to take on the work no one before us has done. We refuse to hand down our inherited traumas, choosing instead to metabolize its poison and transcend its grasp.

This podcast is designed to support, empower, and educate you on your journey of mothering radically. Whether you’re a veteran mother with grown children, a new mama with young little ones, or maybe even just thinking about becoming a mother in the future, my goal is for you to feel supported along the way.

In this podcast, we’ll cover topics ranging from the science of stress responses to reconnecting with your intuition to strategies for dealing with anxiety and overwhelm and hear inspiring stories of other radical mothers who have done this work before.

I’m your host Christa Bevan and I’m a nervous system educator for cycle breaker moms as well as a certified TRE (trauma releasing exercises) provider, and a trauma-informed yoga instructor. And of course, a fellow Radical Mother. My approach to this work blends neuroscience backed tools and heart-centered intuition.

So if a radical mother is you also, you’re in the right place. I’m so excited you’re here and I can’t wait to get started with you because I truly believe that when mothers heal, the world heals.

Merattjm ,

Extremely informative

Christa’s show is a treasure trove of useful information, tools and support for those of us Moms who have experiences from our early life that at times makes mothering the way we want to challenging. I look forward to listening to each new podcast. She is awesome!

Danib120 ,

Much needed hope

I love the hope conveyed. No matter where you are in your journey to heal and change, there’s hope.

sdogg666 ,

Too many good episodes!!

Each episode speaks deeply to my mama heart. This podcast is so relevant in a world where mother’s do not have the village or support we have had since the beginning of time. Christa is hilarious and her guests are on point!
