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 (called matrescence) shows this representation to be false. Instead, we can investigate mothering as a dynamic interplay between theory and practice, reenvisioning motherhood for ourselves and others as we create our own praxis of mothering.

Join Dr. Allison Davis, counselor, educator and researcher of maternal mental health and a mother walking this path with you, to explore mothering praxis that nurtures personal and planetary wellness.
