Details

   During this weekend workshop you will explore the principles of Compassionate Parenting, gaining clarity about the values and methodology that creates the distinction in how we parent from the heart.  You will learn and practice take home parenting strategies that will foster collaborative relationships.

Friday night will be a 2 hour open session for parents and caregivers. An introduction to Compassionate Communication which is the foundation for the weekend workshop.

The rest of our time together (Saturday and Sunday)  we will focus on:
-Trust Building,
-Self connection and compassion
-How to show up for our children with presence and curiosity;
-Strategies for responding rather than reacting
-How to engender a sense of safety, mattering and belonging in your home
-Insights and practices for children to experience being fully seen.  
-Insights into what age-appropriate collaborative leadership might look like
-Growing an understanding and skills to establish a "power with" paradigm.  

Facilitator Sarah has a focus on younger children, while Pam has managed a Parent Teen mediation program. Each facilitator will attend to the different needs of the different age groups.

We are aware of how difficult it is for parents to leave their children for a whole weekend and we are grateful that you might trust us with your time.  Come, be in circle, find community with other caregivers and experience a sense of shared understanding of the often lonely challenges parents and caregivers face. We will hold the space to allow you to land so that you can lay roots for a new beginning or rekindle and energize your current practice.

Who is it for?

  We welcome individual parents, couples and caregivers of any kind who would enjoy learning these skills.
There will be a discount for any couple bringing another couple.
