New Workshop in Conscious Parenting

There will be a free introductory talk on Thursday, August 19 on Conscious Parenting at Over the Rainbow Services in Ridgefield. Conscious Parenting focuses on positive ways to raise children with awareness, confidence, and grace. During the workshop on Sunday, August 22, participants will learn practical tools, taking home valuable information about consciously guiding a child’s natural development. Parenting has never been more of a challenge than in this time of accelerated change, in the ultra-competitive environment of our complex culture. Child-developmental models of education provide a holistic framework for optimal parenting by following the natural growth process of the child at all levels. A basic understanding of the stages of human development along with positive communication skills, and proven stress, time, and space management techniques can help you reduce anxiety and produce peace, while nurturing your child’s inner spirit and imagination, safeguarding a healthy self-image, encouraging faith in the goodness of life, cultivating an innate sense of order and appreciation of beauty, developing cognition and decision-making skills, promoting cooperation and compassion and fostering independence and inner discipline. Workshop presenter Jan Evans, BS, AMS is a former Montessori educator with over 20 years teaching experience. Now a holistic health practitioner, she offers a variety of energy education and healing sessions at Over the Rainbow Services.
