One Foundation of a Mindful Family – MAMASTE019



Today on The Mamaste Podcast Jill and Ryann talk about the concept of deep listening, a component that’s vital for healthy relationships of all kinds. The practice of deep listening requires mirroring (repeating what the person’s saying in the way you’re hearing it), validating (telling them that you see how that makes sense), and empathizing (getting into their feelings about the situation). Plus, Jill catches a fly as we play catch up.

Building Community Through Education – MAMASTE18



This week on the Mamaste Podcast we got to chat with superstar community builder, teacher mama, and totally down to earth doctoral student, Sam Gati-Tisi. She shares her inspiration for becoming a teacher and talks about what keeps her going every day in the midst of challenges.

Sam believes a strong educational foundation starts with community and strives to show her students that they are a part of something bigger than themselves. Her kick-ass teaching style kinda makes us want to go back to 6th grade because she’s seriously that passionate.

Sam’s foundation, admittedly, came from her strong family bond and in particular from her mom’s wisdom-led parenting style. “She encouraged us to solve our own problems and spread our own wings.” She likens her mom’s philosophy to the quote: “What would you attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail?”

We dove into so many inspiring topics in this one, the importance of self-care for teachers (and mothers!), being one of our favorite!

Quotable Moments

“Use what you have, start where you are.”

“We have courageous discussions”

“You can’t get passionate about reading, or science, or math without feeling like you’re a part of a community”

“Your whole life is only about building relationships. For kids in school that’s the best lesson they could ever learn.”

Growing Self Esteem – MAMASTE017



Today on the Mamaste Podcast Jill and Ryann explore ways to start building self-confidence in our kiddos and, of course, some of that starts with modeling. But one of the most simple ways to nourish our children’s positive view of themselves is by eliminating a few key phrases instead being completely present with them as they’re playing.

On Today’s Episode You’ll Learn About:

  • Alternatives to saying phrases like “Good Job!” to our kids
  • Why praising our kids can have the opposite effect
  • Tools to use instead of defaulting to the phrases we’re all inundated with
  • How to approach non-judgment as a practice and lead with curiosity and wonder instead
  • The importance of playing with our kids while being fully present (even if it’s 5 minutes a day)
