Mother and child are the most important, the vital unity for the survival of mankind.
This relationship needs particular protection, in the family, at the workplace and in society.
As society has developed, the understanding of the roles of men and women, of mother, father, family and job have changed.
Equality of men and women is no longer a private matter practiced at home, instead it determines the professional choices of boys and girls, the careers men and women pursue.
The working mother is meanwhile a common phenomenon and has brought with it the challenge of combining child care and professional career.
This double burden requires a high degree of organisation and a high energy input to cope with two important tasks: being a full-time mother and at the same time shoulder a 10-hour job competently, reliably and successfully.
These competing demands of being a mother and a successful professional can quickly lead to physical and mental exhaustion.
Fasting for one week (8 days) means switching off, recharging, rebalancing one’s inner self, to attend only to my own needs for a limited period of time.
The immediate benefit is a profound regeneration without renouncing the world or fleeing one’s responsibilities as mother and as professional.
It is more like a vacation from one’s family and profession. Success requires, of course, careful planning. Child care and other tasks in the family must be well-arranged as a precondition for you to feel at ease during the fasting week and fully benefit from it.
