An 8 week course for Mothers

MOTHERShip

Welcome to MOTHERShip – an 8 week course in which we will explore the transformation that we all go through when we become a mother, and of which we have not been told.

I believe that becoming a mother has the potential to be a time of powerful transformation and change.

But I also believe that we have forgotten how to care for, support, and empower women as we go through this rite of passage.

Welcome to MOTHERShip – an 8 week course in which we will explore the transformation that we all go through when we become a mother, and of which we have not been told.

In my work with hundreds of mothers I’ve seen over and over again how isolated, how overwhelmed, how exhausted, frustrated and often how angry we all are, trying to navigate the transition into motherhood without any map.

I know how this feels, because I’ve walked this path myself for nearly ten years with no guide, often blaming myself for how I thought I was failing at every turn.

The signs of this stress and overwhelm are showing in us all.

We are navigating one of the greatest and most powerful transitions of our lives with two fundamental cornerstones missing:

  • We have lost our village :: We are not being told of this rite of passage known as matrescence, we have lost a lineage of elders and peers who should have whispered in our ears and guided us on our journey.
  • Our transition and role is not valued :: Our society does not place any value on our mothering, but instead teaches that all value comes from outward success, achievement and busyness.

This is why I created MOTHERShip – a space for you to rediscover and reclaim the season of mother.

The MOTHERShip Course

 How it works

8 live morning meditations

We’ll gather every Monday morning for a guided meditation, to help us create new ways of listening to ourselves and to feel the energy that a group of women gathered can create, even over Zoom!

8 taught modules over 8 weeks

We’ll gather every Tuesday evening and journey through 8 modules designed to help you to put your motherhood experiences in a new context and begin to carve out a new way of navigating and being present in the world.

Guest speakers

We will be joined by a beautiful selection of guest practitioners who will guide us through practices to help shift our energy and create new patterns for ourselves.

Community connections

You will have the space and opportunity to meet and connect with other women on the same journey as you and to form supportive bonds and friendships.

Lifetime access and bonus materials

All content, once released into your members area, will be yours to access for life. I will also share bonus materials with you as we progress, again, all yours for good!

Space & Time

This is not a course that you have to ‘pass’ – this is a journey that you can take your time with. All live calls will be recorded and shared in your members area within 24 hours, there for you to listen to and revisit at your own pace.

What other mums have said

Happy voices

So beautifully and simply explained with a warming nurturing tone. I have heard others speak about it, but not so eloquently as you have done Layla.

– Marjan –

That was so powerful Layla, thank you. It helped me to understand feelings, emotions and frustration I didn’t even realise I was carrying.

– Laura –

Thank you for the work you are doing - I had tears in my eyes listening to your words. Why isn’t every woman told this?

– Caroline –

My wish is that this course will be a space for you to:

  • Explore your matrescence – the transformation that we all go through when we become a mother, and of which we have not been told.
  • Learn of the cultural and societal context in which you have been mothering.
  • Gain an understanding of how you have been mothering and struggling in a world that does not value or support what you do in the way that it should.
  • Understand that your overwhelm, exhaustion, frustration, isolation, lack of enjoyment of your role is NOT your fault, but rather a result of your unmet needs
  • Meet and form deep connections with other mothers.
  • Have your experiences heard and understood, a space for you to be vulnerable and honest and listened to.
  • Begin to mother yourself.
  • Turn off that tired and wired version of you and to deeply rest .
  • Reform a relationship with your own body, its messages and cycles and to reconnect with the natural world.
  • Learn simple daily rituals and practices to help reawaken and nurture your divine feminine nature.
  • Begin to reimagine yourself; to rebalance and redefine how and who you wish to be in the world.

Hi, I’m Layla.

I know what a profound impact matrescence has had in healing and reshaping my life and in helping me understand my own role, value and strength as a mother. And so I now feel so honoured and excited to be sharing this course and this message with you.

I have created the content from a combination of my own personal experiences as a mother of three, together with many years of training as a post partum doula, a licenced five element acupuncturist and as a matrescence facilitator and guide.

I live at the foot of the Wicklow mountains on the east coast of Ireland with my three children, three pets and musician/composer husband (watch out for some beautiful music specially composed by him for some of our meditations!).

Good to know

Your questions

What at the dates and times for the course?

The course has two weekly live elements – a Monday morning meditation which is live between 7 & 7:30am on Zoom and a Tuesday evening module call which is live between 7:30pm and 8:30pm (we might run over a little to 9pm, but never later – I turn into a pumpkin after that !) Dates are Mondays from Oct 11-Nov 29 and Tuesdays from Oct 12- Nov 30. There will also be bonus guest slots some weeks. You will get plenty of notice of these extra dates and times when you sign up.

What if I can’t make a call?
All content is recorded and uploaded within 24 hours to your members area where you will then have lifetime access to it.
I have small kids, I’m not sure I can find an hour where they won’t be hanging out of me!
We are all mothers on this course! This is a course designed to realistically fit around you and your life, so if your baby or child is with you, then that’s perfect, if you want to carve this as time for you, that’s perfect too. There will be days when you have to leave a call because baby has woken early or you are too tired to make it to 7:30pm – that’s totally ok and facilitated for you by everything being recorded and there for you to catch up on whenever suits you. There is also an app you can download to listen back with great ease, when out for a walk for example (I’ll share this info when you sign up).
My baby isn’t such a baby any more, but what you speak about really resonates, can I still join you?
YES! I’ve found that when mothers at different stages of their journey come together there is so much richness to be had so YES, if what I’m saying speaks to you, then please join us, the door is open and the kettle is on.
I have another question
Just pop me an email to [email protected] and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
