Shannon’s last name is actually pronounced like “happy” and it’s certainly fitting for her personality. Shannon is fun and brings a fresh, but real, perspective about motherhood to the show.
Shannon’s passion for skiing, especially the moguls, began at a very young age thanks to the fact that she grew up in the mountains around Lake Tahoe.
Shannon was a member of the United States Olympic Ski Team for 12 years, won two Olympic medals, and has multiple World Cup victories under her belt but, she says that nothing has been more challenging, or rewarding, than being a mother.
Today, Shannon opens up about the isolation she felt after becoming a mom, what brought her back to herself and helped her feel connected again, her struggle with having a miscarriage, her uncertainty about having another child, why women should stop telling each other motherhood is “hard”, and the one thing she wants all mothers to know.

Shannon & Ashley
Welcome to the Mindful Mama Movement Podcast! Shannon Kinney-Duh, creator of A Free Spirit Life, and Ashley Walburn, owner of Home Holistic, are bringing you the Mindful Mama Movement - a podcast, community and retreats that empower mamas, encourage authentic living and celebrate living an inspired life. Join us as we bring women together from around the world - in all stages of motherhood - on a journey of learning how to trust ourselves, how to listen to our intuition, how to let go and forgive and how to embrace imperfection in the mess of life. We are practicing mothering from a place of power, presence, creativity, humor and wisdom. This is a place to be nurtured and cared for while you nurture and care for others. We are so happy you are here.
