Water Witching – My SheSpeaks Story

MelissaMullenPhotography-SheSpeaks-7915
A few months ago, the unstoppable Lael Couper Jepson of SheChanges asked me to be a part of her annual (and extremely popular) SheSpeaks women’s storytelling event that came to pass just two weeks ago, in early December. Of course, I said yes – because I KNOW about the power of women’s stories (and I also know that it’s a good thing to get out of our comfort zones every now and then #introvert). The official blurb for my story – Water Witching – below:

How have I disconnected from the ability to access the creative depths within myself? What is it about becoming a mother that has caused me to lose sight of the most powerful portals into my being? Corinne is grappling with these questions as she finds her way back to her energetic source—where she used to swim freely with unapologetic entitlement. Corinne’s story will lift the veil on the ways we honor and abandon ourselves in this thing we call life.

Now that the dust has settled (and my nerves have mostly gone back to base level), I wanted to share the LIVE audio of my SheSpeaks story here, as it’s really the story of my journey to starting Who’s Your Mama Media.

Episode 23: Lesli Weiner – former weaver and SAHM-turned-working-mom, current social butterfly and busiest “retired” person I know…who happens to be MY MOM!

MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL EPISODE! An intertwined chat with Lesli Weiner – former weaver and SAHM-turned-working-mom, current social butterfly and busiest “retired” person I know…who happens to be MY MOM! We discuss her artistic schooling and transition into SAHM…then again into working mom, how the biggest challenge for her creativity was (and still is!) “time,” memories of her mother (my Nana) and how she pursued her artistic hobbies, how all of this relates to society on a larger scale (then and now), mixed in with some delightful family disagreement with how both of us remember any of the above. Good times!

And, BIG NEWS! The Who’s Your Mama Workbook for (Re)Discovery is moving along (expected due date…2017), and I just released a FREE sample section, exclusively for subscribers of my (since closed) “Inspiration Fix” newsletter!

Episode 21: Kathleen Harper – certified life coach for mamas and author of The Well-Crafted Mom

SEASON ONE FINALE! A well-fed chat with Kathleen Harper – certified life coach for mamas and author of The Well-Crafted Mom*. We dust off expectations to reveal hope, discuss owning our feelings (and recognizing the root causes), shifting the “shoulds”  to wants and wishes, the importance of recharging first before jumping into what will feed your soul, reframing your brain and rescheduling your life and how forming connections with a tribe of mamas reveal more similarities than differences (not to mention, inspires camaraderie and healing):
