Each of us is born into life with a unique hardwiring called temperament. Once you understand the aspects that make up your child's (and your own!) unique temperament you will understand why each child of us experiences life so differently! Very often temperament and personality are confused -- in fact, personality is *shaped* by temperament. Temperament does not change. It is our hardwired "operating system" that governs the way we experience life. This session will explain the different aspects of temperament and help you 'decode' why each of your children behave the way they do!

To parent like a guru requires mindfulness as well as a beginner's mind. It requires a clear intention of what is desired through this life-long spiritual practice of parenting. It takes courage to look deeply into one's being for what is in alignment with our highest desires for our children and grandchildren. We gain curiosity, so we willingly look at our beliefs, interpretations and ways of being, which may interfere with following through, moment by moment, to the fulfillment of our desire to parent like a guru. This course is an introduction to the practice of parenting with your own unique spiritual values and principles in mind. As you cultivate awareness of the many life elements that influence your parenting, you will gain self-trust, self-respect and honor of your own inner parent-guru. You will leave with tools to empower you to choose in ways that provide the desires you are wanting, for you and your children. You will be thrilled as you increase your potential for making your child's spirit soar. This course comes from my most recently published book: Cultivating Spirituality in Children: 101 Ways to Make Every Child's Spirit Soar. As a grandparent I questioned the best way to teach my grandson about spirituality. This internal discussion inspired me to write the book. A free video series: Parent Like a Guru, also grew out of this book. And now this introductory course. Who knows where all of this could lead?
