Ep. 016 – Things My Mom Taught Me… the good, the bad, the weird

May 10, 2023

Get ready for an extra special episode of A Modern Shaman, all about the bond between mother and child! Our hosts Kimberly Harlan and Shaman Isabella talk with their talented, thoughtful, badass daughters, Harper and Victoria, as they reflect on the powerful and often challenging relationships they share with their moms.

These mother daughter duos go even further as they deep dive into the meaning of motherhood, being raised by stressed-out single moms, making the choice to be moms or not, and how their mothers have impacted their lives.  In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re showcasing all the things our mothers taught us – the good, the bad, and the totally weird.

“The greatest gift, the greatest teachers in my life are my children.”

Have you ever stopped to think about how our moms shape us, from the lessons we’re consciously taught to the ones we don’t even realize are there? Together, we’ll explore the generational impacts of how mothers teach and guide their children and how those lessons impact our lives and our perception of who we are.

But that’s not all – Victoria and Harper share their experiences of growing up with single moms, including all the love, challenges, and sacrifices that come with it. And we’ll also be diving into the topic of boundaries between parents and children, particularly in nontraditional households. Get ready to feel all the feels as we celebrate the amazing ladies who raised us with love, humor, and a whole lot of weirdness. Happy Mother’s Day!
