Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, The Mother’s Wisdom Deck. In Niki's words:
"The Mother's Wisdom Deck is a beautiful, nuanced kit featuring a full-color guidebook plus a deck of 52 cards illuminating universal symbols of empowered motherhood. The cards can either reveal a message (like Tarot) or simply meet mothers with inspiration and wisdom wherever they are on their journey - losing it or loving it. On this path, and in this deck, everything is included: the piercing moments of surrender, wonder, and infinite gratitude. This is the perfect Mother's Day gift for you or a soul sister!"
"The blog extends our vision for the deck and opens up the conversation to other mothers. And please like and share our Mothering with Soul facebook page–we frequently deliver up some delicious morsels of mama inspiration there."
SouleMama: Tell us about your background. What path led you to the work you do today?
Niki: The path of motherhood led us to the creation of The Mother’s Wisdom Deck. For me, after having spent eight years in India immersed in a world where spiritual life was omnipresent, I wanted to feel motherhood was very much included on the path of enlightenment. I was interested in articulating the way motherhood was similar to a rather relentless mindfulness practice. We envisioned The Mother’s Wisdom Deck to help mothers dive into their inner knowing, a superpower that can guide us through our days with clarity, grace, and humor.
SouleMama: How are your children incorporated into your business?
Niki: Our children sit at the heart of our business. This book is as much their present to us, as it is, in its way, our present to them. Without them we would never have tapped the places within us that are the source of our wisdom and our writing. Feeling somewhat without a map for mothering myself, I wanted to pay attention to the transformative process that mothering constantly asks of me. The deck became a way for us—and we hope others—to claim a moment of reflection. We craved a slow mothering movement, where we could savor all that was being served up, from the mundane to the magical.
