DR. ALLISON DAVIS

 

Reeenvisioning motherhood for personal and planetary wellness.

Get my free ebook, Ecological Awakening of Motherhood, to explore your psychoecolgoical growth in motherhood.

Praxis is a process of putting theory into practice. Change is possible. Inner awareness has the potential to lead to outer transformation.

Mothering is often presented as something we should already know how to do when we become mothers. Yet a developmental approach to the transition into motherhood shows this representation to be false. Instead, we can investigate mothering as a dynamic interplay between theory and practice, reenvisioning motherhood for ourselves, our families, and our planet through our mother praxis.
