Meet Our Founder “Mama” Wendy Silvers
Wendy Silvers, Mama Wisdom Teacher, is the founder and visionary of the Million Mamas Movement, and a Spiritual Midwife of Consciousness who helps women birth and earth their visions into being. A practitioner of Mindfulness, the inspiration that birthed the Million Mamas Movement emerged one morning after she had completed her Visioning practice. Wendy’s inner inquiry of, “how may I be of greater service to mothers and children around the world? How may I be a greater beneficial presence on the planet? How may I bring more peace to my life and the lives of others?” She recognized that mothers are unstoppable yet are not supported in igniting their inner power and value as the ones who influence the world through their mothering. What greater contributions to the future of the world is there than through our children? Compelled from within to gather mothers and others to stand in their immeasurable power, Wendy birthed the Million Mamas Movement, which seeks to empower mothers and ensure that all mothers and all children thrive globally. The invitation is to infuse their lives with the Great Mother energy that the Dalai Lama speaks of into partnering, mothering, parenting and social justice. As a mother, she wanted to make sure that mothers thrive, and, that her daughter and all girls everywhere receive education and have power of choice over their bodies. For all children to know their strength and power, and, that they have economic and educational opportunities. As a parenting educator, Wendy strives to have Compassionate, empathy-led parenting to be available to all parents and educators. The power of Julia Ward Howe’s original Mother’s Day Proclamation encapsulated all that Wendy was feeling.
The MMM is a virtual and live village, committed to empowering mothers, and, providing tools to parents so that their families flourish. It is also about activating and harnessing the unstoppable, innate Universal Mother power within mothers and others that says we want our children and ourselves to have a world that is sustainable and we’re not accepting anything less. “We, the Mamas, resolve to evolve” … is the beginning of the Million Mamas Manifesto. Every woman, especially the mamas, but not excluding the papas, supported, and the children, safe, fed, housed, loved, clothed, educated and celebrated. Clean air, clean food, clean water is a must. Address one and we bump into the others.” Evolving motherhood, fatherhood and familyhood -the global family. The MMM offers programs that teach Universal Peace Principles, Compassionate Parenting & Communication and Leadership/Empowerment Skills.
