Brain Garden – cultivating neural pathways for peaceful parenting
Brain Garden is a workshop for respectful parents who are struggling with putting their parenting principles into practice. You’ve read the books, your heart is on board, but there’s a loud voice in your head that derails your actions. You want to give more autonomy, but it’s too scary. You don’t want to shout or threaten but in the moment you are compelled to be strict about this thing. Or you are giving them freedom and autonomy but you are tense, the stories in your mind stopping you from doing it joyfully.
Negative thought patterns are one of the biggest barriers to your evolution as a respectful parent. With the right tools you can break strong, persistent patterning and limiting beliefs and regroove into new behaviours and and thoughts. Let’s consider ourselves gardeners of our brain, able to cultivate an environment that will sow empathy, joy and connection.
