We are all Mama
We are all Children
We are all in Need of Connection
to Mother Earth, Father Sky, and all the Elements
Around Us and Inside Us
Welcome to the journey of Healing Mama,
This book is unlike other picture books, it is not exactly a children’s book. Within these pages, young and old alike are invited to relate to our birth rites & to the magic of the cosmos. Emotions are revealed, tears and pain, as well as joys and rites of passage. The voice of the moon guides readers through 4 journeys with the elements of Earth, Water, Air, & Fire. Connecting to the first element, Earth, can lead us to discover how good it feels in our bodies to be part of the bounty of Mother Nature all around us. Water can connect us to our emotions and the changing tides and rhythms of our lives. Air can serve as a bridge between our lineage and our language, the words and beliefs passed down through our ancestors. Fire can bring us joy and closer to each other in celebrating our customs. The mama & daughter in this story learn to listen to the teachings of Earth, Ocean, Wind, & Fire, and achieve what they set out to do in healing “Mama.” Why does Mama need healing? Is she sick? Not necessarily, but she suffers from subtle wounds of the soul. She inherited a life severed from her mother, from her body, from the body of earth, and from the body of wisdom that came before her.
If you share it with kids, I’d love to hear what the kids reflections are. Please read it over first before sharing with younger souls and be prepared to answer questions that may arise about everything from birth to menstruation, where the book starts and where it concludes.
