The Peaceful Parenting Path specializes in transformative programs for parents.
Our one-on-one coaching, group classes, and public speaking events don’t just inspire you to parent with more clarity, confidence and courage—they guide you through the process of deep transformation, so that you can begin to parent in a way that awakens and supports the peaceful communication, natural cooperation and loving connection that you’ve always wanted in your family life.
You probably know that real change, lasting change, rarely happens overnight. It doesn’t come from simply reading a great parenting book or attending an inspiring talk. These are insufficient to transform deeply rooted emotional patterns and habits that have had a lifetime to take hold.
So, what is the difference that makes the difference when it comes to parental transformation?
- A step-by-step workable program
- Ongoing guidance and support from a teacher or coach
- Ongoing practice and reflection
Our signature program, the PEACEFUL PARENTING MASTERY course, is built on the foundations of these three steps.
