You know that moment where it all comes together? Where distinct, delicate threads of your life weave together to fashion something new? This is almost always a surprise. It is the other half of the faith equation –the bookend which matches those times when you just create without a clear picture of outcome. It is the moment when you feel the generosity of this Big, Beautiful Life and are left kind of giddy and giggling…. saying “oh this is better than I could have cooked up all by myself!”
I’m feeling that way this Spring about teaching gigs & fabulous partners. Now, as a conscious biz owner trying to integrate work with ample time for home I could say any number of reasons why launching two new series at the same time is not a good idea. (UPLEVEL, my 6 week ecourse starts in two weeks on March 28 & How to Be Your Child’s Soul Teacher on April 3).
Yet all I can say is both series have been germinating for a while and were ready to sprout their little heads above ground.
The Soul Teacher series integrates material some of which goes all the way back to a deep dive into sacred story and birth narrative for my masters thesis at Harvard Div school. Plus many, many lessons learned in 7 years with littles and supporting conscious parents in our Montesori preschool co-op and other venues.
It feels just right to be partnering with our neighborhood community art studio to offer this five week series: each week includes an experiential lesson (hand-painted meditation stones, aromatherapy potions, jingle ankle bracelets & more!) Join me for all five and leave with your heart refueled & with resources galore or sign up for one or more favorites. Below are lots of pics and details. I would love to see your shining face.
PS Ashley & I are doing a free TeleConference next Friday, March 21st at nooncentral time (1EST & 10AM PST) to answer your questions about UPLEVEL our six week e-course which starts on March 28. We will be sharing details about each module as well as personal stories. Register for the call here!
How to Be Your Child’s Soul Teacher
Thursday evenings, April 3, 10, 17, 24, and May 1, 6:45-8pm
Week 1: What is a Soul Fever? What does it mean to be a soul teacher for our child in a culture focused on external achievement? How can we recognize & respond to the symptoms of status anxiety & overwhelm in our children and ourselves? Learn practical ways to simplify your home environment and create a life-giving schedule to preserve your children’s nervous system (along with your own!) Create a unique mobile out of natural elements to hang in your home as a symbol of your desire for balance and harmony.
Week 2: Meditation & Centering Practices for the Whole Family. No lotus pose required. Learn how to create labyrinths in nature (and your own yard), interactive mandalas, a guided pebble meditation and more! Paint your own special set of meditation stones.
Week 3: Your Family Story. Come learn this step by step method for listening deeply as well as an ancient meditative practice of “gathering the flowers” out of your story: starting with your child’s birth and weaving in both sublime and challenging elements of life together. We will also watercolor flowers for our May Day crowns.
Week 4. What is Your Parenting Personality? Do you lead (and filter) primarily with your head, heart, or gut center? Do you tend to lean into conflict? Or need time to retreat to regain your center? Utilizing a powerful tool called the Enneagram you can recognize your own dominant personality pattern and “de-velcro “ from habitual approaches to life to instead find more freedom & choice in parenting and all relationships. Create three aromatherapy blends (in convenient roller bottles for easy application) to balance your mood and help you ground, open your heart, and clarify your mind.
Week 5: Your Family Culture. Learn strategies for crafting life-giving birthday and holiday celebrations which together create a sacred calendar in which you and your child can live the whole year round. Create paper crowns and ankle bells for a May Day Celebration!
