Lauren Mahana is an intuitive healer, tarot reader, birthworker, podcast host of Magic On The Patio and co-author of Labor Like A Goddess: A Fearless Guide to Preparing for the 7 Gates of Pregnancy and Birth.
When Lauren was 14 years old, she was gifted her first tarot deck; it was the start of a long, winding journey down her spiritual path. Through most of her late teens and 20s, Lauren was lost living in NYC; she started and ended many different paths, from multiple colleges, retail jobs, the restaurant world, and merchandising.She began to wonder why nothing seemed to stick. Lauren then decided to shift her mindset and find work that nourished her soul.
She began working at a local Brooklyn herb shop which reignited her spiritual path. While studying herbalism, Reiki, shamanic healing, flower essences, and psychic development; Lauren realized that her path was known all along—she was a healer. She first focused on a small herbal practice and then integrated her practice with Reiki and tarot. After becoming a mother, she found a calling to help guide other women during birth. Becoming a birth worker was the perfect cap on the direction of what has officially become her Intuitive Healing Practice.
In 2018, Lauren won a publishing deal through Hayhouse Publishing. Over the last few months of pregnancy and early postpartum Lauren co-authored Labor Like A Goddess. The experience shifted Lauren again towards a path of creating work that could help heal the collective. This lead to starting Magic On The Patio, a podcast that holds space for conversation about the betwixt and between of the mundane world.
For the past 20 years, Lauren has been exploring, studying, and practicing to be a well-rounded healer. Her passion comes from her drive to help heal the wounds of the spirit so the collective can be transformed.
Lauren's current projects include; individual client work through tarot, guidance and mentoring. Private and public events and parties. Recording multiple episodes a month of MOTP and possibly writing a new book!

What is Labor Like A Goddess...
A pregnancy and birth book written by two birth doulas, moms and intuitive healers, Labor Like A Goddess is the book that is missing in modern childbirth preparation!
Throughout the book, a metaphorical story of a fictional goddess who must walk through seven Gates of Transformation in order to become a Mother is used as a metaphor for the emotional, psychological and often subconscious sacrifices that every laboring woman experiences, whether willingly or not. At the final gate, the goddess must surrender to the ultimate sacrifice—spiritual and ego death—so she can be reborn into motherhood. This book is a guide to help pregnant women understand birth as a divine journey and master how to walk through each gate with empowered sacrifice, purpose and zeal through tools, rituals and integrative practices.
