Simplicity Parenting: 7 Week Series
Event on 2017-11-16 18:30:00
Join Olynda this Fall for a supportive, transformational journey into a more easeful family life. In this 7 week series, we will delve deeply into the work of Kim John Payne, and work closely with his book Simplicity Parenting. Here is a quick overview of his work. We’ll also work with additional material that participants will receive in the form of a handbook. I will, of course, bring my unique perspectives as a seasoned Montessori teacher, yoga teacher and parent into our work together. Each group also has the benefit of the other parents who bring all their wisdom, gifts, honesty and unique perspectives for us all to learn from. In this series we will: *Learn how to create more harmony at home through working in the four areas of: environment, schedule, rhythm, and filtering out. *Learn how to create an environment that supports a child’s calmness, confidence, focus, ability to cooperate, ability to learn and inner-peace. *Learn about, practice and take home refined communication skills that are helpful in every relationship -especially with our children and partners. *Look through the lens of “soul fevers”, and learn how to use this idea to bring more compassion and skill into our interactions with our family members and ourselves. *Practice a powerful method of cultivating the “compassionate response” to ourselves and our kids. support each other in making individualized, small, doable changes that are both practical and sustainable. *Be supported as we cultivate the things that matter most to us in our family life. Led by Olynda Smith Dates: 6:30-8:30pm Sept 14, 28, Oct 12, 26, Nov. 2, 16, & 30. We’ll meet every other week, to give time to integrate the information and practice.
