Why we started Soul Mamas?
We met thirty years ago as performers in the TV & Film industry. After losing touch with one another, our lives once again collided in 2022 because of the loss of our young adult sons. With seemingly nowhere to go for help, we quickly realized that the culture of deep grief support in America is nonexistent (or outdated), so we got to work. With post Pandemic suicide on the rise and the epidemic of fentanyl deaths, Soul Mamas shines a much needed light on the extreme necessity of addressing grief for Mothers & Others: Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Grandparents, Cousins & Friends. 

Our Mission

Workshops, Classes, Retreats & Podcasts

As a Non-Profit Organization

Welcome to Soul Mamas, where we offer holistic, modern solutions to help you cope with grief. We understand the difficulties of going through the loss of a loved one and we want to help make it as smooth as possible. Our services include Restorative Yoga, soothing meditations, Breathwork and other modalities specifically geared to provide the tools you need to heal. We are committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment where you can feel supported and empowered through your healing journey.

We know that grief is a universal language that everyone must face at some point in their lives. Our mission as Soul Mamas is to provide a compassionate community to help you through your time of loss. We have carefully curated the Resources on this site to help individuals navigate through grief in their own unique way.

We will continue to add more tools to this site so keep coming back! As a part of our grieving path, we've discovered that writing blogs and recording podcasts keeps these two Soul Mamas in balance! A tip: Activity alleviates the depression that comes with grief! In the blogs and podcasts, we discuss everything that has helped us, so please feel free to subscribe.

Last, but certainly not least! Our calendar will be filled with live events & workshops (both live and on Zoom) to help address the different ways grief impacts us and how to cope, so stay tuned!

We are both very excited to form a community to share our new normal. Walk with us on this therapeutic journey where you no longer just survive...you thrive.
