CHILDHOOD: The gift of a happy childhood lasts a lifetime. Many people worry that our kids are growing up faster and faster, with less carefree happiness, more tantrums, and more commercial influences. In this workshop we'll come together to learn: Why childhood is so important and what function it serves to overall development. We'll also take a look at what vital aspects are missing for today's kids and most importantly, what you can do about it! We'll explore questions about healthy use of media, the magic of play, conscious respectful discipline and more. This is a fun and empowering workshop for parents, teachers, grandparents and anyone who loves a child. This workshop is offered at a sliding scale donation. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Saturday October 15th 2-4.

If these offerings don't match your schedule any of these classes can be suited to match the needs of small groups as private workshops for groups of 4 or more. Custom workshops are also available, built to suit a range of needs and specific interests. Some previous workshops included a group of teachers who wanted to learn new strategies for working with parents and gaining more cooperation in the classroom. A yoga retreat group wanted to learn heart centered communication techniques for more peace and better health.
Private Sessions and coaching are individualized support and education for parents who would like specific help with an ongoing issue or goal. These sessions and coaching provide one on one support. Parents walk away from a session with specific strategies and tools to inspire the changes they are seeking to bring into their families.
