Stress comes and goes. What stressed us in the past may not be stressing us now. What’s stressing us now may have never done so before. What’s stressing us now may never do so again.
Stress shifts but the unhealthy physical, mental, and emotional effects that arise from how we respond to stress can be devastating and remain long after the stressors have disappeared.
Many parents are unknowingly but painfully still holding a lot of tension from when they were stressed as children. These unresolved and unreleased tensions not only affect us but our children as well.
We’ve most likely forgotten the stressors we faced at the various times of our childhood but their effects can remain in our bodies and our subconscious minds, hindering our efforts to be conscious parents.
Our own stresses as adults can also blind us to the stressors or dis“eases” our children currently confront.
In tonight’s program we’ll explore how we can acknowledge, embrace and transcend our own stressors, while helping our children to do the same.
Tonight’s show will provide you and your children with tools you can use for a lifetime to respond to and transcend stress. Instead of reacting to stress in hurtful ways or “distracting” yourself and/or your children, pretending it’s not there, you can embrace stress.
You’ll learn to appreciate stress, yourself and your children in whole new ways, as you stay calm and centered in the midst of all activities and stressful situations.
Appreciating each other is a true family value, one that will bail out much of the stress on the planet and help strengthen the universal bond all people have.” – Sara Paddison
We can use stressful situations as keys to open our hearts to the unique gifts our precious children bring to our lives and the unique gifts we have to offer our children.
Join us whether you are a parent, grandparent, caretaker, educator, expectant parent, or simply someone who wants to live a conscious and productive life with rewarding relationships–together we will explore Consciously Embracing & Transcending Stress.
We’ll look at conscious parenting as an unconditional, loving relationship that embraces spirituality, self-growth, lifestyle, wellness, silence, inspiration, play, exercise and community.
