The Unmothered Woman with Sarah Durham Wilson

In this episode of Belonging, Sarah Durham Wilson (aka The Mother Spirit) joins me to talk about moving for the archetype of Maiden to Mother. We get stuck in idealizing the Maiden as a result of many things—including the Patriarchy and beauty industrial complex—and many of us struggle to rise into the wisdom of the Mother archetype (which doesn’t necessarily mean literally having children).

Sarah’s work is to heal the Maiden wound so that womxn can rise into a healthy Mother archetype. Together we talk about that Maiden-to-Mother journey, the unhealthy traits of each archetype, what it means to be “unmothered,” healing the unworthiness wound, and dancing with the fear of dying.

“It’s a source of confidence to have met yourself. Most women are so focused on the outside—because they’ve been groomed to be that way—that they have atrophied inner beauty. There’s an emptiness inside of them.” -Sarah Durham Wilson
