I'm so honored to bring the Trailblazer Conversation series to you over the next couple of days. These are radically honest conversations with real-life mamas. Each conversation as unique as they are. It's not often we share to real, raw feelings underlying our mothering. These conversations illuminate the dreams, trials, journey and intentions each mama holds in her heart. My hope is that these conversations are helpful to you in some way along your journey. We are all in this together.
Kyra shares: "All I ever wanted [as a child] is for someone to pick me up and hold me and say, "that must be really hard.""
Day One: From Paralysis and depression to embracing joy and the full expression of being human!
Kyra Lehman, founder of Proximity Theater Company, and wise Mother to one spirited boy shares her journey in all it's depth.
Our conversation covers some really rich territory, including:
~ How in the course of one night, birthing her first babe into the world, she was a new woman.
~ How becoming a new woman, a new mother, she felt more "carved-out" and depressed than ever before.
~ The way she craved to do mothering in a heart-centered way but not having the tools left her feeling paralyzed with the fear he would feel the way she had in childhood.
~ The beautiful story of her work with young women and how her mothering tools are also her tools for helping these women develop a strong sense of self and a high level of emotional intelligence.
~ The impact her words have on the lives of the youth she engages with in all areas of her life.
~ How she now feels so much more courageous and confident in setting limits knowing they come from a place of deep deep love.
Kyra is a gem to listen to as she shares the full spectrum of her mothering experience: "My experience in my life is so much brighter and more detailed now, the darker colors seem darker and the lighter feel lighter, my feet are more firmly on the ground!"
