Are you and your child disconnected? Do you have trouble understanding why your child acts out and how to help them change their behavior? Do you hear your parents' words coming out of your own mouth - words you swore you'd never say to your child? Is sibling rivalry at an all-time high?
Conscious parenting takes the focus off the child and puts it back on to you, the parent. It challenges us to view and understand the emotional baggage that we are bringing to our parenting relationship. When we become conscious, we are then aware of our own pain, trauma and needs that we are trying to fulfill or that get triggered in our relationship with our children.
When we are able to be conscious parents, we are able to leave space for our children to become their authentic selves. We leave space for them to grow and blossom without having to take responsibility for healing us, the parents. When our children are able to experience this space, they are able to feel completely seen, heard and understood. Thus, discipline issues take a back seat and true connection to our children begins to emerge.
In this workshop we will explore these topics through meditation, movement, reflection and shared discussion.
