Soul Mammas | The Tribe
Soul Mammas is a community for those who are seeking a tribe of mammas who speak freely about motherhood, which includes both the ups and downs. Soul Mammas don’t define themselves by societal conventions, or mythical expectations. We are women who pursue passions even with kids in tow, who aspire to wake up with enthusiasm and strive to align with our truest selves.
This tribe grew from a vision to bring a new podcast to the world where waves of ancient wisdom combine together with authentic stories from real voices, helping listeners be the best mammas and women they can be. It is here that we are without judgment, or generalizations-rather we support all types of moms in unearthing the deep magic they have to offer the world and their little ones.
Are you a Soul Mamma who is tired of being labelled as “just” a mom? Do you want to maintain your same passions and pursuit of purpose even while raising babies? Are you looking for a community of other women who can talk candidly about mamma hood without judgment?
Then you are in the right place! My name is Nicole De Leon and believe me, I get it- I’m a mamma too and as soon as I became a mom I started questioning my identity, which I thought I had pretty much figured out already. Was I now, “just” a mom? Does staying at home with my baby mean I am no longer relevant? Does being domesticated mean I must give up all my power and independence? Am I a second-rate citizen compared to my partner who “goes” to work? What do single mothers or those who have partners who leave for work trips even do about this?
These were the questions I started asking myself after having my daughter, and I realized that all mammas must ask themselves these very same questions, even if we try and pretend ” everything is just peachy,” and try to go about carving a new path and answering these questions on our own.
If we go about trying to be Super Moms for the whole world, just so we feel that others won’t judge us, we can never truly connect to the masses of women who feel the exact SAME way. Let’s face it, motherhood is tough. Motherhood can cause us to question our identities. Yet, motherhood is also extremely rewarding and can be incredibly fulfilling in ways we never even imagined.
Guess what? Being a mother doesn’t mean that we have to give up who we are, even if it sometimes feels that way.
And on top of that-you already are a super mom! Even if your two-year old is screaming at you or you’ve successfully made it to yoga only once this week. These are the reasons I created the Soul Mammas Podcast and Tribe.
Soul Mammas are moms who don’t want to be labelled as one thing, but are ever- growing, passionate women who seek to share their greatest gifts with the world. We don’t want to feel guilty for pursuing the business ventures, physical pursuits or personal hobbies we had before having babies. We aspire to lead by example for our children, and find some semblance of balance with it all.
