I’ve been drawn to mentors and teachers who explore the overlap of spiritual principals with parenting . I believe the decision to be a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is. To create an environment that’s comforting, stimulating and nurturing, to pass on a sense of responsibility to another human being, to raise a child who understands that he or she is created from good and is capable of anything – there are few callings that are more honorable.
Navigating through the waters of parenthood is never easy, particularly if you are committed to do it well—and it’s rarely done without support. This past year I discovered the work of Susan Stiffelman, the author of Parenting Without Power Struggles. After I read the last page and closed the book I had to contact Susan. I was blown away by her wisdom and compassion and “rubber meets the road” advice to parents. My question: How can I help champion your work? Turns out she was coming to Chicago to speak at the Union League Club. Perfect! We bounced around ideas on scheduling a speaking event that was free or affordable for parents but as they say, timing is every thing. We had a short window of time to plan (she’s one busy lady) and unfortunately my work/life schedule couldn’t make it happen during her visit….this time. (Stay tuned.)
Turns out something bigger happened. Little did I know Susan had imagined this “big thing” for years, and worked on for hundreds hours to make her vision a reality. Drum roll please….
I’d like to invite you to register for an amazing, FREE online event with Suaan Stiffelman and some of the world’s leading experts on parenting!
Have you ever wished you could learn to remain cool, calm and connected throughout your parenting day, even in the midst of those difficult moments when your children are melting down or refusing to cooperate? What if you knew how to turn things around and restore a sense of peace and enjoyment-instead of sailing into a parenting “storm” filled with negotiations, power struggles, bribes and threats?
Join host Susan Stiffelman, MFT – parenting expert, educator, therapist and author – for these inspiring and engaging dialogues with world-renowned thought-leaders including Marianne Williamson, Harville Hendrix, don Miguel Ruiz, Congressman Tim Ryan, Marci Shimoff, Alison Armstrong, John Gray, Trudy Goodman, Kathy Eldon, Gabriel Nossovitch, Gary Zukav, Michael Beckwith, Elisha and Stefanie Goldstein, Susan Kaiser Greenland, Lisa Garr, Shelly Lefkoe, Christine Carter, and Katherine Woodward Thomas–with a few more on their way.
