Parenting is the most challenging, demanding, and

growth promoting part of one's life. Our uniqueness

stems from our family lineage and our daily add on

foot-print. Being consistent and knowing when and

how to make adjustments to our behavior, is rewarding

and fosters lifelong learning. The theme of this course

is investigating and understanding consistency.

For eight weeks, a two hour class will be offered weekly.

Participants can be on site, attend by internet platform,

or switch modes of attendance.  You can miss one class.


This course will use meditation as a foundation, and it will also include educational materials/presentations, as well as discussions.  This course "is not about your problems," but rather about supporting your insights into dysfunctional patterns and developing healthier alternatives. 

 Prerequisite: Willingness to sacrifice beliefs in order to "Step Up".
