Last year sometime, when I’d finally had it with all of the conflicting, iron-fisted sleep advice I was reading (and trying), I threw out almost all of my parenting books. I was so sick of chasing wisdom outside of myself and feeling addicted to the promise that if I just followed the rules perfectly I would get the perfect result.
(You and I both know that, especially when it comes to parenting, there’s no such thing as perfection. Trying to mold our children’s behavior by following a strict set of rules ourselves is a path to crazytown. I’ve been there and I’d prefer not to go back.)
There were 3 parenting books I didn’t throw out. And two of them were written by Dr. Shefali Tsabary, a woman who I admired from afar through her books and have had the honor and pleasure of getting to know better this year. (The third book, since I know you’re wondering, was Mothering from Your Center by Tami Lynn Kent. Love it. Love her.)
Dr. Shefali’s work around consciousness and parenting set off every truth monitor in my body from the moment I started reading. And it’s informed a great deal of not only how I mother, but also how I relate to my husband Mike, and the content and conversations we have within our membership, Origin™.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about what exactly you get as a member of Origin™, and rather than try to describe it to you, I figured I’d just give you VIP access to our content for the next 3 weeks.
The first piece of the membership I’d like to share with you is our monthly Maven Masterclass, which is an in-depth conversation with a luminary whose work supports mothers (and nurturers) to be their best in business and beyond. (These conversations go places that your average podcast or video interview with these same experts wouldn’t because they’re geared specifically toward mothers and entrepreneurship.)
This month I’m overjoyed to be sharing a conversation I had with Dr. Shefali for Origin™. In this Maven Masterclass we talked about:
- How to unhook your ego from the obsession with achievement and striving, so you can grow your business from a place of trust instead of frantic action
- What mom guilt is all about and how to stop it from making you feel bad about the way you’re mothering
- Why Dr. Shefali’s work has spread so far and wide (like to Oprah and the NY Times list) and how she’s orchestrated it (her answer is going to surprise you!)
- And so much more!

After you hear the way Dr. Shefali views parenting, you’ll never see (or approach it) the same way again. And even if you’re not a parent, this conversation will change the way you see your parents and will be incredibly healing.
