36: Conscious Parenting: A Parent’s Greatest Gift is Awakening – Conscious Parenting Coaches Nina Cruz, Tilley Fine, and Janet Philbin

Over the 10 months of this podcast, we have focused on exploring one important & inspiring question:  “How do we set our kids up to live their best lives?… to be the most authentic expression of who they’re meant to be?”  I’ve asked this question of therapists, educators, coaches, religious leaders, and spiritual teachers.  And if I could only choose one answer to share with the world, it would be this: parent consciously.  But how do we get started?  That’s what we’re going to talk about!

This episode kicks off an 8-part series on conscious parenting and the 7 myths that stand in the way of us connecting with ourselves and our children and creating the conditions for them to express themselves authentically and to know that they are enough just as they are. Joining me in this episode are three coaches, certified in Dr. Shefali Tsabary’s Conscious Parenting Method: Nina Cruz, Tilley Fine, and Janet Philbin.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What conscious parenting is and how it differs from the mainstream model
  • How conscious parenting has completely transformed their parenting and their own lives
  • Why we have to let go of “control” in parenting — and what to replace it with
  • A glimpse of the future.  I have had the unique opportunity of actually knowing someone who was parented consciously.  It’s like finding a unicorn!  Knowing him has been like a masterclass.  I share how he shows up in the world, what we can learn from him, and what the future looks like for our children — and for humanity —  if we parent consciously.
