RevillagersPinkHousePlusWords

Status quo motherhood was already isolating, anxiety-producing, and toxified by perfectionism pre-pandemic. Now, mothers are more burdened and burnt out than ever.

We know we need support. We know we need community. But finding these things feels daunting and draining, even on our best days.

Society isn’t set up for us to have our needs met with ease. We’re set up to struggle. It’s by design that we’re this isolated and overwhelmed.

Unfortunately, if we want things to change, we have to be the ones to change them (on top of all we’re already doing).

Let me help simplify that process

foryou

Through my years of supporting and mentoring mothers, I've had thousands of conversations with hundreds of mothers about what I've come to think of as the symptoms of "villagelessness" - from isolation and self-doubt, to anxiety and over-functioning. These mothers always asked the same question over and over again...

question

It's a simple question, really, but one I couldn't possibly answer adequately in a social media comment, on an hour-long coaching call, or even on retreat. In fact, I haven’t had time to do the question justice, until now.

Revillagers is a self-paced virtual course
 with LIVE support (to help bring what you're learning to life) 
that supports mothers in creating the rich communities and life-giving connections they long for and deserve.

Over these past decades, I've been gathering information, catching stories, tracking patterns, and discovering what works and what really doesn't - and I've distilled the best of it all, here, in this course.

My goal in creating this course was to make it as accessible as possible, so that as many mothers as possible might receive the boost they need in the direction of the community they so desperately long for (and need in order to thrive). 
 

RevillagersDefinition

Someone dedicated to the dismantling of internalized hyperindividualism, who increasingly seeks to solve problems and increase their quality of life through connection, support, and interdependence. 

Maybe you’re already a revillager at heart, but the pandemic has you feeling unmoored and rudderless. 

RainbowBlue

Or maybe you want to be a revillager, but your bandwidth is narrow, you’ve been burned by your community, you’re super introverted, or you feel paralyzed by the thought of adding more to your plate.

This course was created with
three types of mothers in mind…

  1. Mothers in the thick of it, in dire need of support. 
  2. Mothers who’ve learned to cope without a village but who long for more richness and connection.
  3. Mothers inspired to be leaders in the revillaging movement.

See yourself in one or more of the above?

youreintherightplace

Our longing for the village isn’t just about wanting more help with the children. 

It’s also about our need and desire to…

detox and recover from hyper-individualism.

reduce the pressure on our partnerships.

decrease our dependence on consuming as a coping strategy. 

normalize our struggles and affirm one another’s longing. 

practice healthy boundary setting. 

find and be mentors.

realize how much more similar we are than different. 

feel reassured by elders and reassure those more vulnerable than us.

create rituals and ceremonies around birth and death and rites of passages.

grieve and rage and celebrate collectively. 

reawaken the witches, honor the hags, and strengthen the healers. 

pass the baton often so that no one is running themselves ragged. 

connect daily in ways that make life feel lighter and more playful.

nourish one another back to a felt sense of wholeness. 

weaken patriarchy’s norms and narratives. 

remind one another of our true worthiness and actual importance. 

heal our way back into belonging.

Hi, I'm Beth Berry, and I have a revolution in my bones.

It began when I was seventeen and pumping milk in the bathroom of my high school for my now-grown eldest daughter, and has gradually evolved into a tender, fiery conviction to reclaim motherhood from every disempowering personal and cultural story I can wrap my head and heart around.

As an author, life coach, group facilitator, teacher, and mother of four daughters (ages 14, 17, 20, and 27), I’ve spent thousands of hours mentoring and supporting mothers through their process of self-discovery, self-reclamation, dream realization, and community cultivation. 

You can find my writing and voice on my Revolution From Home website and social media pages, within the curriculum of my year-long MotherWorthy groups, in my published writing, and in my book, Motherwhelmed.

Hello fellow introvert! This course is designed to help you move past both your internal and external barriers to building the community you deserve.


Does Revillagers offer a roadmap and ‘how-to’ manual for creating community?

I don't believe a generic roadmap is what most mothers need. Because everyone's path is so unique and needs are so different when it comes to community and connection, rather than a roadmap, Revillagers offers a toolkit. Through what you discover in our time together, Revillagers supports you to create a map to cultivate community which is uniquely yours.

The majority of our mental load and emotional labor as modern-day mothers comes from...

Constantly and creatively trying to piece together some semblance of a village.
• Stepping into roles meant to be filled by other village members.
• Unconsciously grieving this soul-crushing loss (which is hidden in plain sight).

We hugely underestimate the weight of villagelessness on mothers.

Join us, mama. You are worthy of the community, support, and connections you crave.
