MORE CONNECTION,

LESS REACTIVITY

You want your parenting and your life to be more aligned with your deepest values.  

You've come to the right place.  

The practice is, when faced with a challenging interaction, to always guess the thing you hope for or want it to be first. This is the heart of generosity: Giving someone I love space and open-hearted curiosity. Leading the interaction with kindness and generosity ass...

 

This article about how to raise generous kids was so touching to me, particularly because I have been thinking a lot lately about unmerited gifts (grace) and how much of my work focuses on connection and creating conditions for giving from the heart.

How would it feel if rather than being completely attached to how you'd like something to go, each person were to contribute something small (a brick) to create something better than what any one person could have conceived of alone?

The first rule of improvisation is "YES, AND." Saying yes is accepting another’s offer.  When you are invited to participate in a dialogue and you say yes, collaboration begins.  This requires a willingness to be open-minded and to respect what your partner is offerin...

How can I soothe and support another person - be it my child or anyone I’m in relationship with - without assuring them (or insisting) that they’re ok, when they are expressing that they’re not?  It's this simple...
