When I imagine a woman fully empowered in her voice, I think of Noelani Love.
I first met Noelani in Hawaii when dear friend Erica Jago and I led a workshop at her studio. Since then I've watched Noelani come more and more into her voice as a mantra singer, teacher and retreat leader.
I've seen Noelani go for her dreams, speak up for her needs and stand for her beliefs. When we reunited in Bali, Indonesia last May for the Rising Women Leaders Bali Retreat, I wasn't even surprised when she took the floor at Ecstatic Dance at the Yoga Barn to sing the closing song with her ukulele. I watched in amazement as she gathered over a hundred of us to sing along with her that day.
On today's episode of the Rising Women Leaders Podcast, I asked Noelani if she would share about her experiences of finding her voice and how her unique experiences of motherhood and childbirth have shaped her into the woman she is today.
In this episode you'll discover:
- Noelani's empowering experience of having a home birth
- How she found her voice as a singer
- The vision she holds for new mamas and their babies
- Practices for tapping into more pleasure through sound
- Details about Noelani's upcoming album, Lakshmi Lullabies
Links in this episode:

- Noelani's Shakti Sisterhood Bali Retreat

What did you take away from today's show? and How will you add more pleasure to your life with sound? I'd love to hear in the comments below.
A note from Noelani:
As a mother, designer and yogini, I create to inspire. I believe in the healing power of our intentions along with the gifts of this earth. As a daughter of the Mother Earth, I realize that we all have the potential to teach, to heal and empower others through our offerings, as we navigate our way to fulfill our true purpose: LOVE.
Living in Hawaii, with a love for traditional Hawaiian 'oli (chanting) as well as Sanskrit mantra, I began my musical adventure by sharing my original ukulele compositions of mantras in my yoga classes. I have many passions that allow me to share my light with others and empower them along the way: jewelry design, teaching yoga, birth education, tantra, and inspiring self love. I love surfing, singing, writing and spending time with my 'ohana on the North Shore of Oahu.
We are all human beings that deserve to give and receive love. Share your medicine.
