Cultural Emergence for Mothers
Mother Nature Project
While researching and developing the Cultural Emergence toolkit, Looby was also a partner in the Mother Nature project. There has been an emergence and co-creation between the two. It has been an intertwined process of working collaboratively as a group and developing both Cultural Emergence principles and empowering principles for mothers.
The Mother Nature project is a partnership between 7 European organisations. Looby Macnamara has been part of the project since it started in 2018. The group created tools to empower and support mothers and has produced a beautiful and inspirational Guidebook and Card Deck. The project was funded by Erasmus+. The Mother Nature project is committed to creating a worldwide movement of sisterhood, bringing awareness to the personal transformative journey of mothers.
Motherhood is a time of growth, challenges, wonder and transformation. This particular time globally is making it even more challenging to be a mother. One must navigate the huge cultural and global shifts happening, while supporting our children who may be off school and at home. The hope is that these Mother Nature principles that have been developed from collective wisdom can be a nourishing support during these extraordinary times.

Mother Nature Guide Book
This collection of 42 principles will nourish and empower you on your journey through motherhood. They are affirmations helping you to be present, aware and reflective. This guidebook can be daily inspiration, support in difficult moments and a tool for bonding with other women. The aim is to use these principles to emerge regenerative cultures as mothers, where you value your gifts, reframe challenges and connect with nature and other mothers.
To support you in understanding and embodying the principles, each card is accompanied by a beautiful image, inspiring text, reflective questions and activity. They are elixirs, a-ha moments, distillations of the joys, struggles, challenges and learnings. The principles were evolved from a co-creative process involving the first hand experience and collective wisdom of the Mother Nature team and hundreds of mothers across Europe.
Included is guidance for running Mother Nature circles, to enable you to create your own circle of support and connection with other women. This guidebook is in gratitude for mothers everywhere as creators, teachers, nurturers and leaders. May the power of the Mother Nature principles guide you on your path.
