Parenting as a Spiritual Practice

Integral Spotlight: Parenting as a Spiritual Practice | Miriam Mason Martineau from Integral Life on Vimeo.

Many parents are awestruck by the responsibility of raising a child. Overwhelmed by vastly different schools of parenting wisdom, and struggling to forge a path that honors themselves and nurtures their children.  How can we hold the truths of such varied perspectives to raise our children with the most consciousness, love, and creativity we can muster?  How can we raise the bar for ourselves as parents while forgiving our very human limitations?

Miriam Mason Martineau has spent over 20 years asking such questions: as a researcher, integral practitioner, and mother.  And has found that the practice of parenting undergoes a radical shift when placed in a new context: an integral, evolutionary perspective.

Today she’ll share with us some gems that both light up how we might “parent the future” as well point to the “future of parenting”.
