The Soulful Parent Course

Untitled-1 copyI just finished wrapping up my 10 Week The Soulful Parent In-Person Course.  It was such a fabulous 10 weeks, with an amazing group of ladies that it was sad to see it end…but a new journey begins.  There was much discussion, learning…and A LOT of laughter!

I also felt the same when my last spring course came to an end.  I have been blessed with many amazing women entering my life….wanting both personal growth, as well as parental insights & awarenesses.  Because of this a strong bond between like-minded women quickly occurs, and it makes us all feel united in our paths.  …And I especially love the laughter that ensues that keeps life light-hearted, and makes us all realize we are certainly not alone is some of the “mistakes” we make…so why not just laugh at them.

So, I am excited to announce a few things:

1) I will be holding another 10 Week The Soulful Parent In-Person Course in the spring starting on March 6thClick here for details and to register.

2) In the New Year I am launching The Soulful Parent eCourse, so for those of you who don’t live in the local Calgary, Alberta area the course will now be available to work through either as a self-study, or with the option of personal coaching.

3) January 29th, I will be launching The Soulful Parent ebook along with 20 other amazing contributing authors that will blow your socks off.  I’m in the process of putting this book together and I am thrilled with the content I’ve been receiving.  So, stay posted for the launch of this FREE ebook!

Below are what a few moms had to say about The Soulful Parent Course:

“I just feel compelled to write to your right now.  I have to let you know how so much of what you say strikes a personal chord with me…and I mean big time.  You are helping me so much on my path it’s unbelievable.  I knew when my friend told me about you and your Soulful Parent course that it was for me.  I had no idea to what extent.  Its gone way beyond what I expected and is helping me not only with my parenting, but as you share your stories of your personal spiritual growth, you’re helping me pave my way.  So thank you from the bottom of my heart.”  

 Monique

“I just wanted to thank you for the past 10 weeks of The Soulful Parent course.  I feel so much clearer and purposeful.  I have a different relationship with my children and am so excited that I can help them understand their true selves.  You are doing truly great work!”

Honestly, starting the class, I really didn’t know what to expect. I was hoping to gain a few nuggets of wisdom, discover a couple new ways to raise my children and overall just become a “better” parent.

What ended up happening was a dramatic shift in how I look at…well everything. It changed how I see my children, how I approach my “job” as mom and overall, how I view parenting. I realized it’s not our job to shape and mould our children into who WE want them to be; rather it’s our job to simply guide and be there for them as they grow and become who THEY are supposed to be.

Throughout each week during the class, I was given new insights and “lightbulb moments” that really changed my perspective on my boys and my parenting. I was forced to really see my children and understand how they approach the world, what unique characteristics make them who they are and what I can do to support and nurture that.

We are so programmed by society and past generations – and a lot of time, as parents, we just go through the motions. We parent on auto-pilot, often spewing out “because I said so, that’s why” or “I’ll give you something to cry about” or “because I’m your Mom and I know best.”

The Soulful Parenting course allowed me to really understand, while we obviously live in a physical, material world, that to live a truly happy and authentic life, we need to raise our children with a spiritual conscience.

We need to understand this generation of kids being born are far more spiritually advanced and in-tune than in years past. They are sensitive and empathic and really are the people that will change the world. And we need to start parenting these children with a new understanding, an open heart and a new kind of communication.

THANK YOU Trish, for everything you shared, everything you taught and everything you did. The ripple effects of each lesson are still being felt in every area of my life. With so many classes being offered on discipline or child rearing, all designed to fit into a specific box or quickly label our children, your course has shown me that each child needs to be celebrated and nurtured in their own specific and unique way.

I am forever indebted.

The Integrity Code

There’s no way to avoid the fact that how you parent your children is a direct result of how you treat, love and accept yourself.  To be the best version of yourself you need to recover your intuition and your true self, so that you can model that for your children.

The Integrity Code dovetails beautifully with The Soulful Parent, because who you are as a person, what you value, and where your priorities are will impact the way you live your life as well as how you parent.

I will be holding another In-Town Weekend The Integrity Code Retreat.  I will be holding it in April with specific dates to come.  Click here for details.  Please contact me at trisha@absoluteawareness.ca if you are interested.

Once again, this course will also be available as an eCourse sometime in the New Year!

Soulful Discipline

Being a parent isn’t always an easy task.  We are bombarded with so much information and advice that at times it’s difficult to know what is the “right” thing to do for our children.  We can find a plethora of “how-to” manuals, but the bottom line is that the best parenting practice is Soulful Parenting.

What is Soulful Parenting? Soulful Parenting is truly allowing our children be who they are and to honour their true selves.  It is parenting using our own intuition to understand and know our children.

…And what this translates into is knowing that there is no one tried and true method of discipline, but that each situation requires us as parents to filter our decisions and actions through our intuition.  We can equip ourselves with suggestions, ideas and knowledge, but there is no replacement for truly knowing our children, understanding their needs, and using our intuition to choose the best forms of discipline…and parenting.

This evening will be a discussion group revolving around the topic of disciplining our children coming from the perspective of Soulful Parenting.

January 23rd, 2013 from 7 – 9pm.  Click here for details.

On several occasions I have been asked the question, “What happened that led to you making a change in your life?” Because we hear so many stories about people going through something traumatic which was the catalyst that led to change, many assume that is what needs to happen in order for dramatic change to
occur.

I can relate to this line of thinking, since at the beginning of my journey I fell into it as well. Through the books, seminars, courses, and conferences I attended, I would repeatedly hear vivid examples and stories of the immense struggle and adversity people went through that led to their “light bulb” moment. In reading and hearing all these stories, and knowing that I never went through even half the turmoil others endured, I actually started to become fearful that I had to go through some heartbreak and tragedy at some point in order to truly learn. I thought, “maybe it’s still on the way.” As silly as it sounds to me now, it seemed inevitable from everything I had been encountering up until that point.

I read and heard about countless people who had gone bankrupt, later to become millionaires, or about someone who had a severe illness which helped them understand what was truly important. I was concerned that only these unfortunate circumstances led to true knowledge and understanding. I clearly was starting to buy into the notion that struggle equates to value, however something about that just didn’t feel right.

Though these type of circumstances certainly do lead to evaluating the direction of ones life, that does not have to be the case…and wasn’t the case for me!

We do not have to hit “rock bottom” in order to realize the need to change. Feelings of discontent, purposelessness, being overwhelmed and over-scheduled are all indictors that something is out of balance and some self reflection may be called for. However, if we don’t listen to these initial warning signs, the messages that something needs to change will get louder and louder, so that eventually we have no choice but to listen.

Have you been receiving any “messages”?
