Dear Soul Sister,
For so long I felt there was something wrong with me. I felt that I wasn’t adequate, that I wasn’t good enough, that things were my fault if they weren’t going well. I felt that I wasn’t lovable and acceptable the way I was and that I had to do something to make myself worthy.
It took me a long time to realize that the source of this pain came from my most primary relationship with life itself – the relationship with my mother. I had been running from this pain my whole life.
As a young girl I felt that I was a mother to my mother, carrying her pain because it was too much for her to carry alone. I began to realize that this pattern had been passed through my mother line for many generations because the trauma had been so great and the patriarchal belief of women being “not enough” was so strong. I knew that if I was going to break the chain for my children, I needed to heal the mother wound.
I wonder if you feel any of these same feelings? I always thought this was just me however I am learning that I am not alone. These are systemic issues that have left women depleted for centuries, caught in negative thought patterns and self destructive behaviour.
I could not be more excited to present this self-led Intro Course from Bethany Webster which explores this core issue at the heart of women’s healing & empowerment. Now is the time to reclaim our sovereignty and give ourselves what our mothers never gave us, so we can become the sacred women we were born to be.
Love and hugs,

Healing the Mother Wound
4 week self- led Introductory Course
Feel worthy of life
Feel worthy of love
Feel empowered to change your story
And become the woman you were born to be
Many of us have experienced difficult and complex relationships with our mothers.
What most of us don’t realize is how strongly our relationships with our mothers impact our ability to thrive, be happy and actualize our full potential. The way our mothers treated us becomes the way we treat ourselves, which has a ripple effect into every area and every relationship in our life. Unless we heal it, the wound continues to be passed down through the generations.
The mother wound is not something we need to feel shame about; it’s a doorway to inner freedom and full potential.

Meet Your Teacher: Bethany Webster
Bethany Webster is a writer, transformational coach, international speaker and what you could call a midwife of the heart. Her work has appeared in Elephant Journal and the California Journal of Women Writers. She has created the Healing the Mother Wound transformational process from her own experience as well as her background in psychology.
Bethany believes that “healing the mother wound is the most important thing a woman can focus on because of the incredible potential that lies on the other side of it and the scale of transformation that is possible. No other relationship has the power to limit us or to liberate us as the relationship with our mother does.”
Bethany’s approach to healing…
…will give you deep, embodied awareness, as well as the language to validate and explain the complex dynamics you’ve carried in your heart for decades around the mother wound. We do this by guiding you with beautifully crafted information, self reflective exercises, self actualizing meditations, and useful tools for everyday life.
While this course may help you to heal the relationship with your actual mother, the focus is more about healing yourself. You will quickly find that all your relationships begin to change when you change the relationship with yourself.
What you Get
This 4 week self-led Intro Course will give you a taste of Bethany’s full process of Healing the Mother Wound, helping you to transform the mother wound from a source of pain into a source of wisdom.
We guide you through this process by sending you content every week in the form of videos, ebooks and audio recordings. The course is self-led, giving you the freedom to engage with the content as fast or as slow as you like.
WEEK 1: CONNECT WITH YOUR DIVINE SELF
Learn how to pause and connect with your divine self. As women, we are often so busy throughout the day, exercising and often exhausting ourselves by constantly ‘doing’. This is a simple and valuable tool will help you settle into the ‘being’ mode, and support you in building a relationship with your most authentic and sacred self as you move through the course. The more you practice, the more you will benefit.
WEEK 2: WHAT ARE MY BELIEFS?
Our mothers shape the beliefs we hold about our bodies, relationships, careers, money, pleasure, and so much more. She is our primary model for what it means to be a woman, often leaving an unconscious imprint on us that holds us back from our true power and potential for happiness and success. In this module you will begin to understand how your mother has served as your foundation, examining your mother’s beliefs, examining your own beliefs, childhood defenses, unconscious behaviors, taboos & stereotypes.
WEEK 3: EMBODY THE INNER MOTHER
The place where we feel the mother wound the most is the place where our inner child resides. Our inner child is wounded from the ways that we did not get our needs met by our mothers ~ to heal her we must spend time with her and listen to her. In this module, you will meet your inner child and inner mother, so you can begin to meet your own needs and give yourself what your mother never gave you.
WEEK 4: EXPRESS YOUR POWER & POTENTIAL
While there may be pain in our mother’s lineage, there is also love and beauty. In this module you will connect with your lineage and feel the blessings of your mother line, empowering you to take a step into your power and potential.
Includes over 50 pages of beautiful ebook content with self reflective journaling exercises, a 50 minute selection of guided meditations with 3 accompanying handouts, and 2 videos presented by Bethany Webster.

“Everyday used to feel like a fight and a struggle to survive. I would beat myself up all day thinking that if I had just tried harder or worked more I would finally get ahead and feel good enough. I kept giving and giving myself to others in hopes that someone would finally validate me and tell me that I was worthy of love. Now that I have worked on my mother wound, I can give that love to myself.”
Praise for Bethany
“Bethany’s course has put into words and given me clarity for everything I was feeling and experiencing and is helping me heal. Its painful, challenging, amazing and insightful, I feel like I am finally starting to step into my power and for that I am truly grateful.”
Amanda Hassan-Ally, UK
“Some months before I came across Bethany’s work, I had a big falling out with my mother. For years and years I had felt so trapped in guilt and tension in my relationship with her that when I turned 50, I decided I wasn’t going to let it dominate my life anymore… I needed to get out of this destructive bond. The moment I read Bethany’s blog I knew she was the one to help me do it. It was like recognising my story in everything she wrote… Now that my mother wound is healing, I feel my natural confidence is coming back, urging me to speak my truth in an unapologetic way. My work is becoming more successful and expanding in ways I couldn’t have predicted… I feel like I have come home in my own being, including the painful scars as well as amazing lightness.”
Esther Teule, Netherlands
“Before coaching with Bethany, I was not able to separate emotions from the mother wound from the present situation. It felt one and the same. Now, I am able to connect to my inner child and discover what she is feeling and how I am projecting it into the here and now. My relationship with my husband has become much more intimate and compassionate. By sharing what I have learned with him, he has become aware of how he had been subconsciously contributing to the patriarchal attitude that kept a divide in our relationship. I am able to be fully present more often with my 5 year old daughter. Before the course, I was an empty shell with next to nothing left to offer her. Now that I have learned how to validate my experience and emotions, I can do this for her as well.”
