Motherhood: Facing and Finding Yourself Kindle Edition
A Guide to Navigating the Challenges of Motherhood and Finding Meaning in Your Role as a Mother
Motherhood is a unique and challenging experience that can be both rewarding and overwhelming. It’s a role that demands constant attention and energy, leaving little time for self-care or personal reflection. However, in order to be the best mother you can be, it’s important to find time to nurture your own needs and find meaning in your role as a mother. This is where “Motherhood: Facing and Finding Yourself” comes in. Written by Lisa Marchiano, a licensed clinical social worker and Jungian psychotherapist, this book offers guidance and support for mothers who are struggling to balance their own needs with the demands of raising a family.

Motherhood is the true hero’s journey—which is to say that it can be as harrowing as it is joyful, and enlightening as it is exhausting. For Jungian psychoanalyst Lisa Marchiano, this journey is not just an adventure of diaper bags and parent-teacher conferences, but one of intense self-discovery.
In Motherhood, Marchiano draws from a deep well of Jungian analysis and symbolic research to present a collection of fairy tales, myths, and fables that evoke the spiritual arc of raising a child from infancy through adulthood. After all, this kind of storytelling has always been one of the most important conduits of humanity’s collective wisdom—and Marchiano provides each tale alongside keen insights into the timeless archetypes they represent.
Balanced with real-life case stories from Lisa’s own practice and in-depth questions for personal reflection, Motherhood explores how events like pregnancy, the calamities of childhood, and the empty-nest experience are invitations to an adventure into the wild frontier of your own soul. Here you will discover:
* How the challenges of motherhood send you on journeys into your innermost source
* Seeing the value of conflict with your child even while working to solve it
* “The dark passage” of confronting and dispelling the energy of childhood wounds
* “The thirteenth fairy”—how to recognize when we are resisting inconvenient or uncomfortable truths
* Understanding how anger, rage, and aggression arise in parental relationships
* Recognizing the ways that you have been taught to ignore your deepest instincts
* How to navigate the inevitable periods of grief that accompany your child’s many life changes
* Why much of successful mothering requires surrendering your sense of control
With Lisa’s gentle but straightforward guidance, you’ll return from this inner journey in possession of the treasured knowledge needed to clarify your values, embrace your disowned parts, and claim the mantle of motherhood in the full bloom of your empowerment.
In “Motherhood”, Lisa Marchiano draws on her years of experience working with mothers to provide a compassionate and insightful guide to navigating the challenges of motherhood. The book is divided into three sections, each of which addresses a different aspect of the motherhood experience.
In the first section, Marchiano explores the transition to motherhood, including the emotional and psychological changes that occur during pregnancy and after giving birth. She also discusses the impact of societal expectations and cultural norms on mothers, and provides guidance for finding your own way through the many challenges of motherhood.
The second section of the book focuses on the impact of motherhood on identity and relationships. Marchiano explores the complex dynamics of mother-child relationships, as well as the challenges of maintaining healthy relationships with partners, friends, and family members while also caring for a child.
Finally, in the third section of the book, Marchiano offers guidance for finding meaning and purpose in motherhood. She discusses the importance of self-reflection and self-care, and provides practical tools and exercises for exploring your own values, beliefs, and goals as a mother.
“Motherhood: Facing and Finding Yourself” is an insightful and practical guide for mothers who are seeking to find balance and meaning in their role as a parent. Lisa Marchiano’s compassionate and knowledgeable approach to motherhood provides a valuable resource for mothers everywhere. This Mother’s Day, give yourself or a mother you know the gift of this book and the support to navigate the challenges of motherhood with grace and self-awareness.
