What if connection to your Self brings you closer to your children? What if connection to your children is the answer to every parenting struggle you have ever faced?
— Carrie-Anne Moss & Natalie Christensen
This eCourse is designed for the working mothers,
the stay-at-homes, and the in-betweens.

Hello beauties!

Would you like to see your children through new eyes?

Are you curious about what may unfold in your family when you bring your most authentic self to the table?

Would you like to be more in touch with your feelings in order to be free of unconscious action, so that you can guide your lives and children from a grounded, connected, self-aware place?

Do you crave intimacy, connection, truth, beauty, and joy?


Welcome to MOTHER

A four-week exploration of compassion, connection, and creating the life we crave.

“This has been one of the most useful and life changing things I have been a part of. I thought I knew what compassion was and I definitely know what tough love is. They can both be effective. The difference is connection. Thank you a thousand times for defining this for me. I am seeing evidence of this new skill all around me.” —Jill

“This time, these weeks, you women, this process has been sacred. No one has supported me in my mother journey the way you all have. I am so sad that this is ending. I've been feeling anxious, almost frantic, about the end all week. I have felt such joy, such comfort, such excitement for all the words shared over these weeks. Logging on each day has been something I look forward to so much :: how will I connect today, to myself, to my family, to others? How will I grow? Who will I come to know?

“Today was a wondrous day mama-hearts. Wondrous because everything we've been learning clicked. On today of all days. Day two of my period (always the hardest), a teething, growing daughter who hasn't granted me an inch of space, a dirty house, and a later work night for my husband, and no adult connection. This day in the past was a recipe for disaster. But today—well, let's just say I had A LOT of opportunities to practice connecting, and I bobbed up instead of spiraling down every time. A couple of times it took a little longer than others but I did it. I am exhausted but amazed. These tools are making my life better, everyone in my house happier. I feel so grateful, so much more rooted in myself and my mother heart.

“I can't put into words my feelings any more beautifully than [the others] already have. I, too, have needed this circle all my days and am humbled by the compassion I've witnessed, the vulnerability, the love. I will carry the experience of these weeks, and all of you beautiful women, in my heart forever.

“Natalie and Carrie-Anne, I find myself overwhelmed with feeling and gratitude for you both. Thank you for sharing your gifts, your hearts with us. Thank you for being our witnesses.”—So much love, Elizabeth

About us

Carrie-Anne Moss

I have a deep desire to support other women in connecting to themselves and their children. MOTHER is the manifestation of my fierce need to bring my true self to the table as a woman and as a mother. When mothering humbles me, and it most certainly does, I schedule a session with Natalie. Natalie supports me in a way that I wish every mother could experience—no gimmicks, no tricks—to get our children to behave. She reminds me and supports me in the truth of CONNECTION. This is why I feel so strongly about sharing this with other women. In this world we must connect to our selves, and through this sacred work we connect to our children. Connection leads to freedom. This is what I crave.

I live in Los Angeles with my husband and our three children. I am an actress by trade; I am a mother by heart.

Natalie Christensen

I want to reach mothers who long to feel better, be better, do better at mothering themselves and their children.

I want to help women feel good about themselves and their mothering. I want each day to be better for them. I want them to be more in touch with their feelings so that they can be free of unconscious action, that they can guide their lives and children from a grounded, connected, self-aware place.

I want children to feel accepted and understood and emotionally safe. I want them to feel connected to themselves, their feelings, and to their mother, so that when they are out in the world they can act from a secure place.

I am an artist, parenting coach, and co-creator of Feeleez—Tools for Emotional Education


“I am so struck by my experience of the ethereal, emotional responses to things I'm reading and doing, and just when I'm kind of flying high from those emotions, the experience of grounding, practical information like this that brings it all front and center for me. It's really quite wonderful. The energy of these videos were necessary in ways I didn't even understand until I sat and watched them. Amazing. And really, what I've found most transformational throughout the past two weeks is that there is a great shift through minute movements: a three-minute meditation, choosing empathy, naming feelings. These are all such small movements throughout the course of life, and we can really choose them anytime we want to. All day every day. And they rock my reality and, as importantly, my children's reality. Such small things to do. Such profound change in doing them. I get so overwhelmed sometimes at the thought of "change." Like this overhaul that needs to happen is such a massive undertaking that I just want to sleep. And yet, I've found great opening, awareness, change in the energy of our household through these small exercises I'm trying. I'm just kind of in awe. I've forgotten how much the right passage from a book helps to inspire me. I've gotten away from the hopefulness of self-growth, because I've felt so beaten down. I remember now. Again, confirmation that I'm right where I am supposed to be. Doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Being who I am supposed to be. Such good stuff. I'm so grateful.”—A Grateful Mama
