MISSION STATEMENT

To use experience, research, pop culture, and humor to explore and explain self-awareness and mindfulness. Reflective and respectful discourse is offered through the use of podcasts, conferences, presentations, community screenings, group work, individual work, and writing to encourage empathy and compassion for ourselves, each other, and the world.

GROUNDING FORCES

The Zen Parenting message relies on four grounding forces – self-awareness, mindfulness, compassion, connection. If we are discussing parenting, pop culture, or politics, we aim to interweave these values into every conversation.

Self-Awareness

Understand who you are and why you do what you do

Mindfulness

Be here, pay attention, accept what is

Compassion

Relate to others with kindness and caring

Connection

Our hardwiring, our joy, our reason for being

Creating conversations to encourage self-awareness, mindfulness, compassion, & connection
