I am a woman who is searching for my truth in intensity since becoming a mother two years ago.
I seem to fit best in the world of natural family living, although I have yet to firmly plant my feet in that identity.
I don’t do Cry It Out, I love babywearing, I prefer the approach of Gentle Discipline, although I am ambivilant about too many words for toddlers. I am skeptical of Western Medicine and passionate about food. I discovered Nourishing Traditions and I am loving experimenting with cultured/fermented foods. Our son still sleeps with us and breastfeeds, a totally unforeseen outcome.
I was brought up in an anthroposophical home and educated in a Waldorf school. I am searching for my truth in all of what is Waldorf. I don’t know if my son (DS) will attend a school or be homeschooled. If he attends a school, I don’t know if it will be a Waldorf school. At the moment Enki is looking like a very good fit.
I am a Jew by choice, affiliated with the Reform Movement in Israel. And deeply confused about my spiritual identity. On my mothers death I felt the need to mourn as a Jew and I long to practice Judaism in my day to day life. My Israeli family reject religion outright.
This blog is my ramblings through the issues in my life as a woman and a mother in Eretz Yisrael.
