Somos Padres is a parenting podcast where husband and wife duo, Paulo and Yesenia, talk about and share information about parenting AND also embrace parenting as the vehicle thru which we can recognize the places where we need to do some work on ourselves. Yesenia would call it healing, Paulo would call it evolve and others would call it something else, but it doesnt matter what anyone calls it. It is the recognition that our children are our mirrors that reflect back to us the places where we need to grow as human beings, and talking about parenting thru this lens is what Paulo and Yesenia are passionate about. Podcasts drop as often as this mom and dad are able to release.

    New Podcast Episode!  True story,  we started recording this episode multiple times because we didn’t agree on whether or not to start by saying "AGAIN, that we are back after a long hiatus".   It wasn’t until the fourth or fifth time that we finally realized that our not recording was a manifestation of how we were living our lives; putting things off that we cared about because we were “too busy” or “too tired”.  While talking we realized that the current pandemic experience can be an offering from the universe.  Paulo and Yesenia offer a glimpse of where they currently are in processing their quarantine experience and share what they are currently struggling with and how they are looking at things differently while at home.   Thanks for tuning in!

    We are excited to welcome Áma to this episode of Somos Padres.  She is a single mother of two beautiful girls in Los Angeles and when she is not working full-time or spending time with her girls, you can find her at Agape International Spiritual Center as a spiritual practitioner or collaborating with spiritual counselor, Suzi Lula.  As you will hear, Áma’s journey is one of constant evolution and incredible resilience.  She has been a spiritual seeker her entire life but as you will hear, even with all of her spiritual knowing, she felt lost when it came time to deal with all of the emotions that her daughters brought up for her.  This is a great episode for those of us that are working to connect our spiritual evolution with our parenting evolution.
