Get to know us
We believe that change for our future generations starts with us. We are passionate about liberating the whole presence of individuals, organizations, and societies to optimize the emergent unfolding of human consciousness and to take inspired action for the equitable and joyful co-existence with all creation and future generations.
As a mother of an inspiring 6 year old daughter, Motherhood has awakened in me a reverence and vigilance for my own evolution. I know that I'll never be able to tell her what to do to "do better" than me. If I'm stressed out or being a perfectionist, she will learn that mistakes and imperfection are not acceptable; if I'm not making time for self-care, she will become an adult who will not prioritize her own wellbeing. It may seem like small actions, and these are the moments that can shape the future of our children. Further, much of these ways of being were created from my own insecurities, my own limiting beliefs, and my own childhood trauma.
Children are in theta brain waves until they reach the age of 7 or 8, meaning they are absorbing all of our unconscious and conscious behaviors. I want what my daughter absorbs to be a way that will help build a healthy foundation to honor the beautiful person that she is and growing into.
Building a level of self-awareness that it takes to choose to parent consciously is no easy task. It takes responsibility, humility, and support. I have been fortunate to learn from amazing teachers, connect with enriching friendships, and develop a way of deepening my wholeness. Building friendships and collaboration with Carmen and Sarah has only given deeper meaning and understanding to the importance of our conscious choice to role model for our children. Having this mindset has radically shifted my "ideas" of parenting, and it is my hope that sharing this perspective makes deep ripples in our societies and collectives, to raise healthy future generations.
We hope you enjoy our resources, classes, and offerings. We aspire to radically shift the pardigm of parenting and the perspectives we collective share on nurturing our children and the responsibility we have as cultivators in our future generations.
