038. What We Need Right Now: Nourishment with Lisa McCrohan, MA, LCSW-C, SEP

Soothed, settled, safe, and connected.

When Lisa mentioned wanting to talk about nourishment, my first thought was “Nourishment? What’s that? I seem to have forgotten…” How about you? Same? Are you feeling any kind of nourished right now, mama?

Good news: you’re about to! Lisa McCrohan is back to speak peace into our tender mama hearts right now—and I’m so grateful! She highlights how we can approach our life using our mind, body, and compassion. By the end of this conversation you’ll have a deeper understanding of not only how your nervous system works but ways we can soften, reconnect, and feel nourished. I’m personally dealing with big waves of emotion, fatigue that plagues me off and on, and snowballing thoughts that keep me exhausted some days. It’s not every day, just some. But it’s enough that I want to find ways to move through those days.

In this episode, Lisa talks with us about:

· Connection…with ourselves, with other people, with nature.

· These times are messing with our nervous system.

· The power of naming your emotions, softening the body, & applying compassion

· A simple explanation about what’s happening to our nervous systems right now

· Mind + body + compassion

· She even shares three powerful poems with us: Self Love; Hope; & Be

Homeschool Explained: Homeschool Explained is an online course I created to help parents begin their homeschool journey with confidence. I was getting a lot of questions from parents about my family’s homeschool journey…they wanted to know more but weren’t sure where to get started or if it was a good fit for their family. So I started teaching in-person workshops here on Maui to help parents sort that out. But then requests starting come in from other islands and other places asking if I could put it online from them, too…so I did! I totally get it, starting any new journey can be overwhelming…especially when you feel this call on your heart to homeschool but aren’t sure where to begin. That’s why I’ve put over 10 years of homeschool experience and insights into this easy to follow, easy to use online  course that answers common questions, helps you work through worries, and saves you time.  Find out more at
