From Don: Across 2020 I was privileged to do Ruth's Mother Practice. I live in Australia but was able to make the time difference work through the wonders of ZOOM. I am a Christian Yogi and found the almost year long practice not only inherently interesting but also deeply spiritually enriching. We are all ONE regardless of who we are. Ruth is a sincere and knowledgeable teacher who speaks from her heart to your heart with the deepest integrity.
For me, as a male, I wondered if being with the Mother Goddess was the "right thing" to do ... but the practice with the group was beautiful and the Mother Goddess certainly spoke to me through one of her forms. It was unexpected but Kamala came to me and has stayed with me ever since and keeps popping up in my life. Thank you Ruth! What a privilege to be with you and the other souls on the journey. It's still going for me! with love don
From Gloria: In March of 2020, Ruth invited me to participate in The Mother Practice she was leading and what a beautiful 10 month journey it was! Each month we were introduced to a new Mother from one of the sacred Deities. Little did I know when I began The Mother Practice, that after just one month, I would be moving my own 94 year old mother into our home as a result of Covid. My relationship with my mom was complicated, difficult and filled with chaos. Having her live with us was uncomfortable and unsettling.
One of the most remarkable parts of this journey was that sitting with each Mother in meditation for a month provided me with insights and strength to navigate my relationship with my own mom. Tuning in to the energy of each Divine Mother provided a different aspect of healing for me. I believe that immersion in a Deity practice helped me untie some very old psychological knots. I was able to get in touch with the protective power within. Deep, profound and magically filling me up with what my own mother could not give me!
Incredibly, my anger and deep disappointment transformed into compassion, I was able to fully accept my mom and love her regardless of her words or actions. As a result, our relationship softened and our interactions became gentle and kind for a refreshing change.
And as if right on time, on the evening of the Winter Solstice my mom passed. As I sat with her in her final hours, all of the Mothers came to me and held us both. Wrapped in stars my mom returned the great Mother Womb.
I now realize that The Mother Practice showed me how to heal my relationship with my mom. And introduced me to additional tools to help navigate life. I look forward to doing the Practice again! Love, Gloria
“Walking side by side with The Mother during this last year was a sacred journey to the depths of my Heart...of my Being.
She, in Her infinite Wisdom and Love, knew exactly where inside myself I needed to rest...what I needed to remembered...what I needed to surrender....how I needed to heal. With Her strength and tenderness by my side I felt confident and safe to walk the path of transformation and receive Her Grace!
Her loving arms continue to embrace me...Her voice still whispers in my Heart...surrender and trust...trust and surrender! This journey was a blessed experience that I will continue to embrace in my Heart.” Thank you, Ruth, forever and ever! Maria
