At the beginning of 2008, I had the great fortune to participate in a week long workshop focused on the archetypal energies women call upon in our lives. The mother archetype holds the energy for creation. Anytime we as women focus on bringing something new into the world, whether it be a child or a product or a book or blog or a — fill in the blank — we call on the mother archetype inside.
Women are positively radiant when they talk about their creations… me included.
The start of many a conversation at Mom 2.0 was like any other networking function where strangers collide under the common umbrella of a conference’s theme… a bit dry, a little awkward, a dash of soooo… what to you do? And time and time again when the conversation turned to our kiddos’/new company’s/new book’s/etc. latest and greatest milestone the tone completely changed, the woman I was talking to literally shined. I was over-joyed and honored to witness it time and time again this weekend.
Which leads me to my #2 Take Away…
