‘Mothering the Mother' is an intimate and interactive women’s circle and virtual village for the mother who is tired of trying to do it all and be it all on your own, who is ready to break free from emotional survival mode and allow yourself to receive the support, nourishment, and connection you need because we aren’t meant to mother in isolation. Here we rise in matriarchy and remember that motherhood is a sacred responsibility.
Do you long for…..
time and space that is fully yours
to feel seen and heard
to be nourished and supported
to be validated for all that you do and all that you are
to be celebrated for all your invisible labor that no one sees but you
for relief from the constant striving
to do it right
to be good enough
to be everything for everyone but yourself
to remember who you are beyond your role as mother
for connection with yourself and other women
to know you are already enough
You long for a village to support, uplift and hold you.
I was there once too which is why I created Mothering the Mother.
You don’t have to go it alone. There’s another way.
WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU JOIN OUR 6 MONTH VIRTUAL VILLAGE
A soft place to land where you will know you aren’t alone, you’re not crazy and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you.
Real talk, authenticity, vulnerability and support around all those topics that feel too much to process on your own from the comfort of your home.
No time to scroll? No worries!

Mothering the Mother
Through the combination of weekly group coaching and ceremony calls, in depth teaching videos, a digital library of resources and a private group off of social media for connection & accountability you will be supported in your shift from:
and check out her story...
After having my third child, I was feeling like my life was so full, but I felt empty. Juggling a full time job, a husband and three kids left little space for me. As a result, I looked to my accomplishments and my to-do list to define my worth - and it wasn't working. I knew I wanted to FEEL more full in the full life I had created but investing time in it felt like one more thing. I knew I needed to learn how to tend to myself.
My journey began by giving myself the gift of time (and yes, money), which truly has been a gift to everyone in my life. Investing in this program allowed me to learn how to tend to myself so that I show up more beautifully for my kids, my husband, my colleagues and most importantly, myself.
I now know my worth and no longer waste time comparing myself, set boundaries in order to prioritize the things that fill me up, ask for what I need to feel supported and show up at work unapologetically being my whole self
My wish for all women is that they invest in themselves the same way.
This is not your average mom’s group.
In Mothering the Mother you will:
✔︎ Meet your overwhelm and anxiety with tools to regulate your nervous system
✔︎ Understand the stress cycle, how stress lives in your body and learn tools for stress release
✔︎ Create and maintain boundaries that prioritize your needs & pleasure
✔︎ Stop comparing your mothering to others by knowing your highest values and mothering in alignment to these
✔︎ Reconnect to your intuition and wisdom allowing these to guide you in decision making
✔︎ Embrace your body’s cyclical nature
✔︎ Discover your Loving Inner Mother and listen for her soft, soothing guidance
✔︎ See emotions as messengers and learn tools for emotional mastery
✔︎ Allow yourself to ask for help and receive support
✔︎ Recognize how your childhood influences how you show up as a mother
✔︎ Address healing in your own mother-daughter relationship
✔︎ Shift from control & consumption using the creative process
“Shaelyn’s way of uncovering my inner mother has helped me to come to terms with my own desires for love and admiration. She was there to hold sacred space for me to feel the emotions I needed and to help me come into my own power as I explored my inner anxieties.
The connections I made in just 2 sessions with her were better than 10 weeks of regular therapy!”
Mother of 2 & Solopreneur
Creative midwife, mothering coach, cycle breaker, homeschool mama and most of all a woman who is learning to mother myself alongside my daughters. I hold a MA in Holistic Counseling with a specialization in the Expressive Arts for healing.
When I gave birth to my first daughter I gave birth to my unmothered self. I was prepared for everything except my own needs. I had no conscious blueprint for mothering. I read and I learned everything I could and it just added to my overwhelm. What I needed was support. What I needed was to know I was good enough. What I needed was compassion. What I needed was a space where I felt safe to share my struggles.
What I needed was this group. I’ve weaved together what I learned on my journey as a mother and as a clinician to create a program that will support you to create boundaries, rituals and routines that honor your worth.
This village is the culmination of many years of loneliness and longing. This village is the mother I spent my whole life looking for. First I created this within myself and now with so much grace and gratitude I share it with you.
A mother that thrives, leads a family that thrives.
“"To listen to my needs was not part of what was taught or modeled. Like many people in this society, I learned that my value comes from how well I can do something, how much I can get done, how much praise I receive, or how happy and comfortable I can make those around me feel. Mother the Mother is a total pattern disrupt.
Shaelyn provides incredible tools, rituals, and beautifully models how to decondition these deeply held beliefs that many of us carry. To love yourself enough to tune in, listen, and tend to your needs is an act of revolution (which I didn't believe before). As I practice self-mothering more and more (especially in community), it is becoming my new framework and way of being.
Shaelyn holds some of the most powerful sacred space that you will ever experience. I truly know what sisterhood means because she creates a safe and magical space for healing and connection. Her work goes beyond the women that she sees directly; her dedication to ancestral healing and the healing of feminine energy is so potent, and gives me a feeling of a larger global shift.”

WHAT YOU GET WITH
Mothering the Mother
"Shaelyn is the person you need in your life to help you jump into your vision and show up in the world exactly how you were destined to be.
Shaelyn has the refreshing ability to identify where our pain and our hurt lives and steals our power. She is so warm and nurturing it allows you to feel safe. Working with Shaelyn gave me permission to be vulnerable. I now have the courage to express my emotions and needs without feeling like a burden. I highly recommend giving yourself the gift of working with Shaelyn and fully becoming who you are meant to be."

How many spaces are there?
When does it take place?
How can I possibly add one more thing when I already feel like I’m drowning?
What’s your background and training like?
I have a MA in Holistic Mental Health Counseling, Certificate in Advanced Graduate Study in the Expressive & Creative Arts as well as my Reiki 1 & 2 certification. I am a JourneyDance Guide plus I did advanced training with JourneyDance creator Toni Bergins in her Embodied Transformation Method. Most recently I completed the Maiden to Mother teacher training with Sarah Durham Wilson. I also have 10 years of clinical, trauma informed experience working with youth & families. Plus, 8 years of motherhood which was the greatest initiation and training of all!
Do you offer refunds? If so, what is the policy?
I will give you as much of my time as needed before the program to find your clear yes and answer all questions. Once you commit and make your deposit, you're saying yes to the full program. No refunds will be given. There are some times that come up in the course of 6 months that may take you away from the course, but it's all recorded and you can catch up another time. Should a life-changing event occur, of course I support you in completing in a way that feels in integrity for both of us.
I can’t make all the calls, is that okay?
Of course. The live calls are for YOU. They are an opportunity for you to be held, seen, supported as well as to ask me questions, get personalized support, be in community, and deepen your understanding of the topics. However, they are not mandatory. If you miss a call, they will be recorded for you to access whenever you want.
I'm feeling a yes, but my "I can't" voice is really strong...any guidance?
Let’s chat. Is the voice you’re hearing yours or is it a lifetime of messages that have convinced you that you should be able to do it all alone? Because we know that’s not working, This invitation is calling you forward and naturally that will stir a level of resistance. Just notice it. Get curious. And I;m here to support you because I remember how hard it was to say yes to community support and I also know that it changed my life in the best ways possible.
How is this different from other moms groups?
The focus is on YOU and not your child specifically. Of course they will benefit from every single thing that we do together. We will cut right through the small talk and get right to the soul talk. Becoming a mother is a sacred transition. Here we will honor all that motherhood stirs-grief, guilt, shame, anger and all the stuff we’ve been taught to hide.
