In this two-hour class, parents separate after the first hour for a discussion about the book: The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering Our Children by Dr. Shefali Tsabary. This innovative parenting style recognizes the child's potential to spark a deep soul-searching leading to transformation in parents. Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents' psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent's development. THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Conscious parenting is about becoming mindful of your behavior and engaging with your child as an individual. Dr Tsabary inspires parents to get back in touch with their emotions and shed the layers of baggage they have inherited during their own life and are unconsciously heaping on their children. As they become 'conscious' in their parenting, so parents can transform their relationship with their offspring and raise happy, well-adjusted children.
