Connected parents' Retreat
Our first event was held in Portland, Oregon :: October 2018
We become conscious parents by tuning into our nervous systems, setting loving limits, leading with connection, and tapping into a community of other parents who get it!
Conscious connection is a reunion
of your parent self with the rest of you.
Conscious Connection is a gathering of parents who know the heartache of hard transitions, sibling battles, flaring tempers, and how cranky chronic stress interrupts our best intentions.
How do YOU feel steady and supported?
Are you ready to move beyond tough love, time-outs, and no time for yourself? We're gathering to appreciate and learn from one another.
