CONSCIOUS PARENTING WORKBOOK

WHERE ARE YOU ON YOUR

MOTHERHOOD JOURNEY?

Kids just want to be seen, loved, and celebrated for who they are. Now it's your turn.
Welcome to The Present Mother.

Pregnant Belly
A Toddler and a Baby
Meditation by the Sea

CONCEPTION TO BIRTH:
THE JOURNEY BEGINS

Worrying about baby’s health is just the beginning. In floods the emotional roller coaster. Confusion. Exhaustion. You're at the starting gate and you’re already overwhelmed. So much to do. So much to learn. And in so little time. Body aches. Can't sleep. Too many decisions to make. How did it get so complicated so fast? Worrying if your stress is affecting the baby and if you can really do this. So much looming responsibility.

0 - 18:
HIGH-INTENSITY TIME AT HOME AND WORK

On top of more expenses and higher bills comes an all consuming love and fierce protective instinct. You feel intermittent reminders that you’re not taking care of yourself. Plus your boss needs that report yesterday. It’s a struggle. From getting the baby to sleep and worrying about your milk supply to siblings fighting, conflicts with your spouse, lack of support at work, and homework battles at home. Constant juggling. So many parenting choices to make. Feeling like you're on constant fire patrol.

EMPTY NEST:
MIXED EMOTIONS AND
THE REST OF YOUR ONE. PRECIOUS. LIFE.

Sadness coupled with excitement for their lives, and yours. Confusion about your next chapter. Feeling like you’ve lost your true self or realizing you may have never known her in the first place. Losing the vibrancy in life. Feeling empty or “flat” inside from not living a life that truly lights you up. Forgetting your dreams or feeling they’re just too lofty to ever be realized. Tired of waiting for “someday” for your dreams to be realized.

 

YOU CAN CHOOSE A BETTER WAY TODAY

Your Happiness Using My Unique Abilities

INSPIRATION

I inspire and amplify your natural desire to deepen your connection with your child or adult offspring, while also acknowledging and including your desire to earn income for your family (if applicable-they both impact the other), nurture your other relationships, and take care of yourself.

GUIDANCE

I guide you through the behind-the-scenes inner workings of the mother-child relationsh by breaking down complex concepts into simple terms and actionable steps that you can implement immediately. More importantly, I guide you back to your inner intuition/ guidance.

COACHING

I help you identify and release the root cause of the biggest challenges you face in your relationship with your child so you can be more successful at home and at work. My coaching style is "transformational" because it focuses on helping you shift how you see yourself. This causes you to solve your challenges from an entirely new, more empowering perspective.

MENTORING

I mentor you in learning to transform the disempowering beliefs you formed in your own childhood, into new beliefs based in the reality of your current lives; this creates an unequivocal knowing in you about the best thing to say or do in every future challenging situation you experience with your child, adult offspring, spouse/ partner, colleagues, and all other people in your life.

YOUR SESSIONS


Like a private yoga class for your mind, you'll experience and practice the self-awareness and calm center that can seem so elusive during motherhood.


Together during your sessions, we'll focus on the motherhood problems that are the most pressing to you at that time. No topic is off limits.


During each session, we'll work with the thoughts on your mind, tease out the ones that are causing stress, and transform them into a higher level of awareness of your inner wisdom, bringing new solutions to old problems.

You'll learn how to envision a better future, take inspired action, and manifest your goals.

 

RESULTS YOU CAN EXPECT


HALF THE STRESS AND DOUBLE THE JOY!


*  Brand new solutions to age-old problems.

If you're interested in the possibility of working together, I invite you to schedule a free get acquainted call now. This isn't a coaching call - it's to see if we would be the right match to work together. A virtual coffee/tea date. :)

THE PRESENT MOTHERS COMMUNITY™

and Morning Walks With the Present Mothers Community™


Has Evolved

The Present Mothers Community™ is now called "Cycle Breakers Support Group".


If you'd like to join this free "closed" facebook group, please go to

https://www.facebook.com/groups/thepresentmotherscommunity/


GROUP DESCRIPTION:


Are you a cycle-breaker? You're invited here with open arms. Formerly The Present Mothers Community for those who like my book, The Present Mother, I've pivoted this group for just those parents (dads too), therapists, teachers, and coaches who face the struggle every day to break the negative parenting cycle in their own family, and/or who are helping other families do the same. These cycle-breakers are doing their best every day to create new, more empowering, more conscious ways of being, of treating children, of raising their own children, and/or are helping others do the same.


You’ll find this community to be a place to feel encouraged and supported in your intention to be a more positive parent for your kids, a better teacher/coach/therapist for others, to share your experiences, to ask and answer questions, and to ultimately deepen your and/or others' connection with the present moment, yourself, your child and the rest of the world's children.


Welcome! And thank you to all the moms and dads who are breaking the cycle, and thank you to all the coaches, therapists, and teachers too, who are writing and talking about breaking the cycle and spreading the love.

 

THE PRESENT MOTHER CREDO

by Catherine Weiss



I am a present mother.

Ever-evolving, ever-growing,

Always intending to be

Calm in the chaos,

Safe harbor in the storm,

A lighthouse guiding my child home,

Home to their inner light,

Home to their brave, powerful, blossoming soul,

And home to their humanness,

from a new perspective,

A perspective of understanding,

A perspective of compassion,

A perspective of patience,

A perspective of divine grace,

A perspective free of judgment, guilt and shame,

A perspective of unconditional love.

For the many things

About my child and their life

That are already perfect exactly as they are.
