The Mama Glow Miami Event with Latham Thomas and Tracy Mourning

Mama Glow Miami Beach

This week, I had the honor of attending Latham Thomas’ Mama Glow meet-up. South Beach set the mood for a beautiful Miami day, and the event did not disappoint. It was a day of meditation, relaxation and reflection for mothers, expecting mamas and ladies hoping to start families.

We began by introducing ourselves and despite our varying professions, most of us had common ground in blogging or website ownership.  After getting the formalities out of the way, Latham initiated a brief meditation session; chanting “om” and allowing ourselves to expel the rushed energy we built up navigating the metro traffic. It was awesome. She talked about the importance of mothers taking time for themselves, and allowing time for personal restoration and care. Health and sexual energy was a great topic of discussion, as we can’t make babies without both factors.

My cousin (and fellow mommy blogger) Jheanell (Belle Jheanell) met a lovely lady on our way into Soho Beach House, and flowed into the event in the breeze of her aura. To our surprise, that beautiful spirit was Tracy Mourning. She engaged us with her life story, struggles and triumphs – right before sharing her non-profit lovechild; HoneyShine, Inc. I fell in love with the concept, and hope to work with her very soon.

Latham and Tracy shared the floor gracefully, and Mama Glow had my attention. The concept not only revolves around mothers, but around women as a whole. We all share the same organs, and deserve the same level of care.

About Mama Glow:

Mama Glow is an abundant, radiant energy that comes from within. It’s about your initiation, birthing yourself as a powerful woman, as you prepare to give birth to your bundle of joy. Birth is our rite of passage, and Mama Glow is our birth rite—to walk in grace, power, and wisdom, to have understanding, reverence, and trust in our bodies. Having faith in the benevolent universe and being an active participant in the co-creation of your fabulous life. This act of standing in your power ignites a force within that glows from the inside out. It’s a personal style that reflects confidence, beauty, radiance, and balance.

Different walks of life, united by the desire to find happiness within ourselves. The discussions touched on a myriad of topics; settling around motherhood, fertility and taking care of self. What felt like an hour was actually four, and we walked out feeling renewed, refreshed and bonded. I met a group of awesome women who may never be in the same space ever again. Like Ice Cube said – “today was a good day.
