Welcome back to the second ever Moment. Thank you for taking this moment for yourself to help you feel calmer, lighter and perhaps even shift your perspective a little before the busy week ahead.

This week’s Moment is with Dr. Gabor Maté. I am sure you know of him. He is a renowned addiction expert, speaker and author and sought after for his expertise on trauma, addiction, stress and childhood development.

This is one of the most powerful conversations I have ever had on the podcast. It is still the most downloaded ever to date.

It was so hard to choose a 10-minute clip. It is no exaggeration that I have listened to this episode about 5 times this morning trying to find the most powerful clip for you.

The whole episode is just remarkable and powerful. I did manage to kick my perfection out of the way and decide on one. In this Moment he talks about why it is so hard to be a mother today and why it is our profound responsibility to keep being curious about our own behaviour on this remarkable journey of motherhood.

As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.
