Listen for a preview of our first season of Contemplative Motherhood podcast. We discuss the inspiration for this podcast and what our first season is all about. Thanks for listening in! Tune in for Episode 1 on May 24, 2021.
I’m Erin Thomas. I’m a mother, a contemplative and now co host of “The Contemplative Motherhood podcast.”
Have you ever felt like you were in the framework of some reality show featuring the chaos of Motherhood, starring yourself or one of your kids.
Maybe you find yourself overwhelmed with your task list. And you just. Want. Space. Quiet. Contemplation.
Here’s the thing...we have been there and we quickly realize there wasn’t a compass or a road map for this kind of thing, AT ALL.
So, I did what every Mom usually does in a situation like this, I called another Mom.
And I was that Mom….I’m Chelsea Whipple, mother, contemplative, and just like Erin, a spiritual seeker.
As we broke it down in conversation, we realized that what we were talking about was needing to process with a fellow pilgrim on this Contemplative journey.
We were both walking this path of Motherhood and Contemplation, with a general understanding that, really, they aren’t mutually exclusive.
But sometimes the beautiful chaos of Motherhood can take over, right? So How do we ACTUALLY live out this journey?
To be honest with you, if you’re here for answers, that may be a challenge. But if you’re up for questions and perhaps even more questions on spiritually seeking within the life of Motherhood…. I promise you, we are your people.
Each episode you will find that we unpack this life…. with practices, encouragement, stories of Mom lives, and generally, asking hard questions.
One of our favorite things to do is to end each episode with a quote. And we’ve found that this one is a favorite.
“Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.” Teresa of Avila
Mamas, Contemplative Motherhood is a unique and beautiful convergence in a sacred space. That space is right here, with all of you… on the “The Contemplative Motherhood Podcast” available on all major podcast platforms on May 24th, 2021. We will see you there.
