Here’s where we’re going…deep connections where you lead with love, land your love and nurture your blossoming family.
Here’s how we get there…
The Five Pillars of Parenting:
We will dive deep into each of The Five Pillars of Parenting:
- Pause: Be Present
- Plan: Your Magic Bag of Tricks
- Provide: It’s Go Time
- Practice: It’s a Process
- Proaction: Creating Context for your Family to Thrive
In this workshop experience, it’s not just about learning stuff. Let’s be real. You read and ask questions, you watch and listen. There is no shortage of information out there.
However, if you’re honest with yourself, how consistently are you implementing what you learn? What do you do when it’s not working? What happens when your partner isn’t on the same page as you?
Set up as an experiential workshop, each 2.5 hours will give us time to dive deep, to practice, to be messy, to fall, to get back up and brush off, fall again, lean into one another, and to have massive breakthroughs which will transform you and your family from this point forward.
Lead with Love:
In a world where we are only as happy as our unhappiest child, where we strive to do the best that we can but always coming up short…riddled with frustration, worry, shame, guilt for what we aren’t doing or can’t do, our children are getting the short end of the stick.
Because we are leading with fear. We don’t mean to. We mostly don’t even know we’re doing it.
What are we afraid of? We’re afraid of being too lax or too strict. Yet the “balance” of good cop/bad cop never feels quite right.
We’re afraid we aren’t spending enough quality time with our kids. We feel bad about sneaking out for a workout. We put off date night with our partner because we don’t trust anyone with our baby. We even ignore requests from our girlfriends for a weekend because we can’t bring ourselves to leave.
We’re afraid of falling behind the Jone’s. Is my child in the right preschool? Should we start basketball at 3 years old, or is that too late? What instrument do you start with and when? What summer program should we enroll in to prevent the “summer slide?”
When we lead with fear, we white-knuckle our way through the day. We miss out on the joy that can happen even in the hardest moments. We jump between guilt, shame, and blame from the past and worry and concern in the future. And we completely miss out on the only moment that counts; the present moment.
Leading with love can only happen when we are in the present moment. Let’s get you there.
Land Your Love:
Our kids not only get to be loved, but they also get to feel the love. They get to have their hearts melt. They get to feel seen, understood and honored for who they are in each present moment.
Fear shuts down that possibility. We have the best intentions, but in practice, it falls apart. We know better about the world (at least we think we do), and we want to prepare them for living their best life, BUT that can get in the way of creating a connection.
How do we do both? How do we connect in the moment AND provide opportunities for our children to learn long-term kindness, resilience, independence, generosity, work ethic, empathy and the values important to you?
How do we stay present when our brain is going 100mph, when we need to fulfill all the duties of our various roles, and complete the laundry list of to-do items?
In this 6-week series of 2.5 hour workshops we will learn how in a sacred container AND then go out into the “wild” to practice, make mistakes, recover, repair, and try again. In this course you will have the guidance, support and accountability to make these changes last. You will learn to get present over and over and over again.
Nurture your Blossoming Children:
Keep ’em safe, love ’em, give ’em the right experiences and tools so they can create happy and successful lives in alignment with their heartsong. Let’s build foundations so you foster connections that will allow authentic growth into who they are, heart and soul.
Bear witness to the miracle and wonder of life, the ups and downs, ins and outs, crazy and calm, splendor and simple. If we let them, they will be our greatest teachers. Let’s listen.
Get out of the overwhelm and join us. We’ll have fun, laugh, cry, be challenged, share vulnerably, lean on one another…basically remember once again and practice being human.
I can already feel the love.
