Colleen’s wisdom about the female body and it’s needs during fertility and pregnancy gave me the guidance that I needed to start believing in myself again after a very long and hard road. – Raeanne, Rochester NY

As the warrior trains to be the best warrior, how do you actually prepare to be the best parent? How do you train for the demands of child-rearing?

Read How
Warriors, though we could insert any physically & mentally demanding profession here: athletes; samurai; gladiators; hunters, didn’t simply read books on fighting or learn skill from listening to others. They physically practiced movements to gain mastery of their body & mind, participated in mock challenges with others to hone their skills in safe environments (not afraid to fail), commiserated and celebrated with fellow warriors, and had the mindset of a champion.

I’d like to add to that list Parents: warriors in raising tiny, awesome humans. Yet we’re mostly doing it alone…which is devastating us. We are not meant to do parenting in isolation.

To be proficient and find our flow, it takes preparation, consistent learning, and humbleness. Like anything this physically and mentally demanding, it also takes a group of people along for the challenge, grit and heart, learning from failures, and repeating yourself 37 times.

Activities that boost athleticism, capacity, community, knowledge, immunity, energy, and strength for the specific challenges of parenthood, is your training.

The good news? Exercising, overcoming challenges, with other parents boosts all of the above AND your persistence and sharing “high”; producing endorphins which make you more open, trusting, cooperative, and positive.

To be the best human, the best parent, the best samurai, means preparing and training with fellow humans by our side, just like any new skill to be acquired. You need guidance and accountability. This calls for coaches and specialists, classes, paradigm shifts, lifestyles of health optimization. You get support for all of that here at CO/CREATE.

“I can attest to the fact that Colleen is a passionate speaker and a treasure chest of women’s health knowledge. Her focus on helping women prepare their bodies physically for the experiences of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum is both intriguing and incredibly important for women during their childbearing year, as well as for the birth workers who support them.”
