Courageously.u Podcast description:

Bethany Webster believes that from the day girls are born, they are conditioned to split off from their truth. This creates anxiety, doubt, shame, and it’s the core issue at the center of women’s empowerment. Bethany calls this split the Mother Wound, and she believes healing it will be the most profound inner work women ever do.

Bethany Webster is a writer, international speaker, transformational coach, and author of the must-read book, Discovering the Inner Mother. She is considered the global expert on healing the mother wound, something we inherit to varying degrees as women living in a patriarchy.

She started blogging in 2013 about the Mother Wound and quickly experienced worldwide demand for her work. Through blending research on intergenerational trauma, feminist theory, and psychology with her personal story, Bethany’s work is the result of decades of research and her own journey of healing. Bethany speaks, consults and mentors around the world sharing her growing body of work that is raising the standard of women’s leadership and personal development.
