Some humans are pure sunshine. It explodes out of their eyes, warms your heart and transcends through your body like a big hug.
These girls are exactly this. They are inspiring, they push boundaries and have the biggest hearts I have ever come across. As a celebration of Mother's Day we had one of our favourite mothers Jenna Agius take some beautiful snaps of these two super hero mum's Corrie Sanderson & Vanessa Prosser and their beautiful little pack of humans; and we caught up with Corrie to ask her some questions about motherhood, life and living in her wonderful comminuty.
How did you two (Corrie & Vanessa) meet?
How important is having a support group of women around you?
So important, 10/10. Whether its one or two or twenty, we all need some sort of sisterhood surrounding us. Especially in this motherhood gig.
What does the word community mean to you?
Living life alongside each other sharing knowledge, resources, skills and time.
How did you come across whole beings?
Drum roll…..Instagram. And we live just a block away from their beautiful Palmy studio.
How important is holistic learning to you and your family?
As someone who is halfway (I’ll get there, mum) through a teaching degree in early childhood the idea of holistic learning is super important to me, especially after studying it at that deeper level. It’s the way of the future. We feel so incredibly lucky that our kids have access to the Wholebeings resources and programs.
If you could give one piece of advice to new mothers what would it be?
Listen to your instinct and your baby, they’re smarter than they look. Find your own rhythm and don’t stress about the ‘rules’.
If you could give one piece of advice to your daughter what would it be?
Ohhh man. This is hard. Don’t ever pluck your eyebrows from the top, at least that’s what my mum told me. But honestly, I would probably just want her to know that she was created with purpose so live like it.
If you could give one piece of advice to your son what would it be?
Again, I would want him to live with purpose - and to know that being soft and being strong are not opposites.
Finish this sentence. Love is......
