The Compassion Effect
Where has our compassion gone and how do we get it back? Aja explores compassion, the lack of it and how we can begin to address the lack of it; first with ourselves and then to those around us, especially our children. Through personal stories of a forced, unwanted abortion, an epiphany while watching a trauma conference and a recent interaction with her son, Aja shows us the damage of the lack of compassion in mothering. She works to decipher where black moms began to "lose" their compassion and then explores ways to begin to be compassionate to ourselves again.

In today’s practice session, Aja reveals steps you can begin taking immediately to reconnect with yourself and learn to trust and honor yourself as you step away from performing your authentic self. _______ If you like what you hear leave a rating and review!

Ep 2: Learning to Re-Parent Ourselves
A replay from Aja's second public discussion on Black Mama Trauma.Aja’s healing work is specifically related to her relationship with her mother and that’s what’s being discussed today. She’s going to go from just having a conversation about it to really having this massive movement around legacy shifting related to Black mama trauma. Has it been dominant in her life? She says it has. She grew up without a father and with a single mom who was her primary caretaker and thus formed her view of the world from that upbringing. She felt she was more oppressed than cared for so recognizing and trying to heal from that was work. Work that many of us are familiar with in different ways that shows up in various relationships in our adult lives. Motherhood is one of those ways it shows up. Can adults and children deschool together? Aja and her son are in transition mode from homeschooling to deschooling because in addition to deschooling herself, she has decided that her son is going to as well. It felt contradictory not to do so, she felt like she couldn’t do both. She needed her son to think differently, to think for himself and shared examples of this here in this podcast.

When Aja and her son moved back to the U.S. after their natural learning travels took them to Mexico, they ended up staying with her mother longer than anticipated. Aja has been realizing how much her mother’s baggage affected her own sense of worth and value. Who am I? What do I like? What am I healing from? How is my relationship with my parent playing out in my relationship with my child? Those are the questions that have been on the rise for Aja, and she is not willing to leave them unanswered. Listen and connect as Aja talks about what she’s feeling, observing, and moving toward as she deschools herself and makes room for her son and her to continue cultivating a holistic, authentic, trust and respect-based relationship.

Aja is raising her Black son while healing from the trauma of being raised by a woman who didn’t heal from whatever harmed her. Black mama trauma is the topic, and honest, love-centered, reclamation and healing are the intentions. Join Aja twice monthly as she and invited guests get vulnerable and deliberate about legacy shifting with support, back-up, and truth-tellers. http://bit.ly/shesaidweshed
