Our Story

Here’s how the name, Meditation Momma, was given to me.

I had been teaching for a couple of years when it became clear I needed to start sending out a newsletter to simplify communication with my students. One day, I asked my class to help me find a name for the newsletter – a name besides my own.

My name front and center? No thank you.

We bandied about suggestions but everything was so seeeerious, so triiiiite or too contemplative. Nothing was capturing the friendliness, warmth, support, and fun we enjoyed in class. Not to mention, I've been known to cuss, or be mildly inappropriate by some standards, on occasion, and some sort of serious, lofty name wouldn't be real for me.

In an effort to switch our focus I told them how my daughter’s friends and co-workers in LA affectionately called me Momma Prentice. Someone shouted, “Meditation Momma” and we all started cracking up big time because we knew -- that was it!

And that is the simple story of how, Meditation Momma came to be.
