LA LUNA MAMA

The beauty that you have within is most bewitching, but you are so afraid of relating to it. You have found a way to relate to every other beauty but your own. Human is very bewitching to itself. Light is light and every human being has his or her own light, but instead of looking at your own light, reading your own book, living your own life, living your own house, guiding your own self, you look to others

About LA LUNA MAMA

The La Luna Mama concept was born out of a conversation in my kitchen a couple of years ago with my dear sister Myrah Penaloza. Myrah is the creator of La Luna Social, a passion project to create sisterhood and community, and It's Time To Bloom, a mindfulness movement co-created with husband Robindra Mohar.  After spending time with Myrah and Robindra at their inaugural It's Time To Bloom retreat, what began as an idea shortly after I gave birth to my daughter 4 years ago, has now birthed into a beautiful project and offering for mothers everywhere.

La Luna Mama is a resource to educate and empower mothers back into wholeness with themselves. Cultivating a practice of connection to Self that is rooted in pleasure rituals and ceremony in the form of yoga, meditation, pranayama (breathwork), herbs, essential oils, whole foods, and green beauty. La Luna Mama is support for mothers to confidently navigate their leadership role with themselves and their children- their ALPHA MAMA. Pleasure. Remember that? Yes, this is all about creating things in our lives that feel good and are pleasurable. La Luna Mama is more than Motherhood Mentorship/Coaching, Mother Moon Circles, and Motherhood Portrait Sessions. La Luna Mama is a state of MIND and a way of BEING. It is about grit and grace- rising up out of who we once were, and who our mothers and grandmothers were. It is about reclaiming our power and harnessing the energy we need to fulfill on this incredibly dynamic role called Motherhood, so that we may do it with humour, pleasure and authenticity. It is about being clear and strong; a vessel for the Universe to use us in a way that serves the greater good in the world. There is a new kind of revolution happening in the world- one in which women are rising up and taking flight in their own transformation, so that they may create and serve in the most powerful way possible. 

When we develop a relationship with our most authentic self: our inner guidance system and our radiance, we create and model an environment for our children to do the same

Our children and the world need us NOW- there is no time to waste on 'healing our past' or 'waiting for the perfect time' before we take action. That does not mean that we don't introspect- we do. In fact, we must deeply engage in our own clarity, in our power and in our emotional bodies, while we cut through the layers of self-deception. The key is that we don't dwell in our emotions or our past or who's doing what. What is most critical is the thoughts that we think, how we live our lives, and how we treat our children (and other's children). In every moment and in every breath we take, we have the free will to choose a new reality and fulfill our true purpose.

Why does any of this even matter? Why do we do it? To create a better experience of life through connection. Connection to Source, to Self and connection to our children.
