Hello Dear Ones, I am Rebecca.
I am a Descendant of Dakota, French, & English Mothers & Grandmothers, as well as many missing + unknown.
They inform the teachings I share with you, through my body, my dreams, my song, my writing, my creation.
I am a Mama & Artist on Unceded Kaáⁿze Homelands. These are Ancestors of displaced peoples, & I know my place here among them.
I live in the inbetween :: with identities including non-binary + mixed lineage though raised "white" + Two-Spirit, pansexual + non-monogamy + Moonlight + Rushing Water. My pronouns in english are she/they, though I do not actually feel those. I DO identify as Mother. That is solid for me. And, I rejoice in the ways others identify as m(other), care-giver, parent, transmom, mxm, & the others I am unaware of.
I began my Journey through Sacred Motherhood at the tender age of 22.
Since I heard the call of my first Child longing to be born, I have walked with intention & understanding that Motherhood
would be my initiation home.
It's been a dark, difficult, rigorous, painful, lonely, courageous, remarkable journey.
I have had to mourn. Grieve. Release.
To relearn who I am, what I want, need, and desire.
I've learned to create, to play, to trust, to dream, to mourn, and embrace the twists and turns.
Many, many beliefs, patterns, and outdated modes of thinking and behaving have had to fall away, in order for me to find my joy, fulfillment, purpose, belonging, and freedom in my role as Mother. It has taken conscious, daily, BEING, and ACTING.
I am propelled by a vision.
In my vision I see children being cared for by adults who are wise, healthy, free, creative, strong, brave, and bold. I hear children's voices. They are unafraid. They are kind. They care. I see Mothers courageously bonded, to themselves, the Earth, and our Ancestors. I see us supported, celebrated, and inspired.
I hold space for Mothers.
Really, that's what I do.
My education & training is as follows:
Certified Conscious Parenting Coach through the Jai Institute for Parenting
Director of Education at the Jai Institute for Parenting
Onging Education & Preparation as an Early Childhood Waldorf Educator
Bachelor's in Social Work & Community Organizing & Indigenous Studies
10+ years practicing & studying 5Rhythms Dance
10+ years studying & practicing Evolutionary Astrology
Home birthing + Home Schooling Mama of 2! (The best training there is!)
My Processes & Approach:
I work with Mothers who are actively dismantling inner parenting, & outer parenting; including self-talk & parenting practices that are rooted in shame, obedience,
oppression & violence.
Because my work centers around M others who are survivors of childhood wounding, trauma + abuse + neglect, I navigate our work together with trauma-informed awareness & commitment to safety, as a priority.
*I am NOT a trauma-trained therapist. While our work together will be therapeutic, I do not claim to be able to navigate your healing process in the way a therapist would.
I incorporate several modalities, including:
Mind + Body awareness
Somatic Processing through movement meditation (5 Rhythms Inspired Dance)
Unconscious Story + Belief mending
Inner child work through guided visualization & letter writing
Connection to Elements + Ancestors, & inner Archetypes
Hello Beloved Mothers, I am Sam McFin.
I am so excited to be the lead facilitator for Motherhood Unearthed!
My journey has led me here after 15 years working in education,
primarily in early childhood and Montessori environments.
I started my own early childhood Montessori program in my mid 20’s and ran it until a little over a year ago when I decided to close the doors so I could be home with my son, myself and my amazing husband Ando now homeschool our 2-year-old son, Galen Rainn, as well as a few other children in our close community.
I completed my conscious parent coach training through the Jai Institute last year and immediately started working with Motherhood Unearthed.
In my heart, I believe in the vast importance of the work that we are doing here.
We are healing the world and recreating the entire parenting paradigm through walking this journey together in community and through the ripple that is created as we reconnect with ourselves so that we can more deeply connect with our children, our community, and the earth.
