"What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your FAMILY." ~ Mother Theresa.
So simple, right? And not always easy. There are days at home that feel so far from peace and perhaps that's as it is meant to be. I let the idea of "peaceful" parenting go, a good while ago. It's not always peaceful and calm. What I am committed to is parenting consciously, from a place of awareness and choice. I am committed to this place we call home, and these souls I am blessed to call family. I am committed to growing in our moments of conflict, growing into our more capable peacekeeper selves, growing into our more skilled eyes-open committed to win-win cooperation dynamic selves. I am also committed to doing the sometimes hard work to continue to be able to bring the me I want to mothering. I want my interactions to be thoughtful, and of my own design, not of reactive unexamined patterns. I'm on this journey, right along side so many beautiful mothers and fathers who are also committed to parenting consciously. We embark on a refreshing journey this Monday, November 30th. For three weeks we will walk together through my favorite tools for peace-keeping even when it's not peaceful at home.
This is the best way that I know how to "go home and love your family!" and what could be more precious this season?
I would be honored to have you join us for Conflict To Cooperation With Your Child.

"Good Morning All, I just want to share with Mariah that I have listed to Day 6 (Caring with Empathy) about 3 or 4 times now and I'm just so enjoying how you weave together your own experiences empathizing with your sons and really diving into how empathy sounds, looks and feels in situations them. You are truly a gifted storyteller and empathy guide." ~ Heather
