Because we are human. Still we ARE perfect in our humanness. This short training aims to tackle your mom-stress and worries with new skills you'll use to calm down your nervous system and hack your unhealthy patterns. Yes, there are practical tools to help you regain balance in any circumstances. New healthy habits will bring sustainable relief to how you see the world, yourself, and how you operate in life. Radical stuff.
A legacy of emotional wellbeing starts with you.
I bet you do. How do I know?
I want it too; these are our basic human needs.
No wonder we all are in this collective pain/panic right now.
We do not feel safe.
We crave connection.
We feel even less significant.
All on top the most demanding job in the world - motherhood.
When the darkness becomes so thick, and the worry so overwhelming, we wonder if things will ever return to normal.
That's when we need clear, practical tools and support.
Because your emotional wellbeing matters, and is possible.
The current challenging circumstances amplify the usual mom-struggles.
Yet, the anxiety is not helping... is making things worse.
This program will guide you out of this deadly loop.
You can bypass your anxiety, rage, and excessive worry to nurture yourself from inside out - regardless of the circumstances. That's when you start to be your true awesome self again, and your family, especially your children, can feel anchored and calm down.
WHAT YOU WILL GET:
I'll give your depleted self the tools to calm down the nervous system on the go so that you can get some mental rest and grounding. Only then you'll be able to access your patience and wisdom and send the ripple effect to your family.
This shift may seem small, but the outcomes are life-changing.
The goal of this training is to guide you back to yourself - to help your mothering happen from a more centered and generous place.
It's quite impossible to be the parent you know you want to be when you live in the mental chaos, feel overwhelmed, and lost in life.
You will rediscover your vitality, get your creative & fun juices flowing again - so you get in flow with your kids, with your partner, and in life.
You'll finish this journey feeling resourceful - knowing how to help yourself. How to deal with the most challenging experiences in a way that feels safe and most effective for you and your family. Without guilt, shame, or exhaustion.
YOU will have trust in yourself - feeling resourceful.
To get you there, we'll not be digging in the pains of your past - you've got yourself, and you know what you need in this department.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT FROM THIS TRAINING:
The goal is not to bring you to a blissful calm and happy ever after Instagram-like limbo state, looking radiant. This course is not therapy (even though it might be therapeutic.) Its's resource-building education and support, rooted in science and experience. All our practices are also trauma-sensitive, so we can reinforce your safety.
What we will do together is sow and grow new mental and emotional habits, develop new skills to support you along the way. To make you feel more in control in your life - with kids and adults alike (happier, however YOU define it).
Does it sound like a lot? No worries. You do not need extra time. Only redirecting the focus of your attention daily. Little by little. With our support.
In 4 weeks, you'll have skills to tackle your anxiety and calm your nerves whenever you need it. The new healthy habits will bring sustainable relief to your parenting and how you see yourself. Powerful stuff.

I was very skeptical of the whole "self-compassion" thing, but it turned out to be my go-to trick whenever I felt like losing ground again. Ela has a steady and calming presence, so rare and supportive.
It truly turned my life 180 degrees. This program showed me how many opportunities and ways there are to actually recharge. I finished the training restored and grounded, ready to take on new challenges. Now I have tools to keep myself sane :) Interestingly my son is easier to manage now when I’m in the more confident place.
If you, like me two months ago, feel overtired, at the end of your rope - you need to work with Ela. My perspective has changed, and my days are so different now. Things that used to drive me nuts have much less power over me (some disappeared altogether). I am my own bestie, and this paradoxically invites more support from others. Magic. I can't recommend it enough.
You start on the first Monday after your purchase the package. The course continues for 4 following weeks.
