PART TWO: The Mother Wound with Bethany Webster, Author of Discovering the Inner Mother

In PART TWO of this two-part series, Bethany and Nikki continue their empowering talk about the Mother Wound. Bethany discusses the by-product of the “Inner Mothering” as a way to create a bond of safety with the child inside of you. She addresses filling the “mother gap” of what you may not have received from your mother, and, over time, feel safe enough to be sovereign. When comforting our inner child, we can overcome patriarchal mandates that have been instilled in society. Nikki and Bethany talk about guilt and how women are taught to internalize this. We must validate our feelings and feel more fierce so that we can actively speak our truth.
