This isn’t just about our KIDS – this is about making things right with regards to our own PARENTS. In this talk we’ll arrive at a mutual definitiion of Spirituality – as ALERTNESS, awareness, presence which leads inexorably to equanimity. This is about how to show up with that alertness with the closest in our lives.
PRACTICE IS REQUIRED TO EVOLVE ANY LACK OF EQUANIMITY- that is our mission and our privilege.
Why is it so easy to be “spiritual” with complete strangers? With this talk we begin a process of finding a way back to this definition of spirituality with our own families. NOT JUST WITH OUR CHILDREN, but most importantly and primarily with OUR PARENTS.
HONOUR OUR FAMILY OF ORIGIN – we must put our parents first if we want to BE great parents
We must understand our parents to forgive them. We really picked them perfectly. Our kids are soaking up EVERY THEORY THAT WE HAVE ABOUT OUR PARENTS… everything we think about them – every judgment, every fear we have about our parents, every feeling… THIS is what our kids are absorbing.
Our children are bathing in our assumptions about our parents. Whatever we think about our parents right now is what our children will think about us… so let’s clean it up. With this talk, we learn about limbic resonance, inspired by A General Theory of Love, and how our every mood is shared, limbically, and that we have choices. We learn that there can be no blame.
We cannot keep our parents separate from us if we want to call ourselves Divine. IF WE WANT TO RAISE A DIVINE CHILD, WE MUST APOLOGIZE AND FORGIVE.
