Welcome to our Zen Parenting Podcast. For over 10 years we've shared our life experiences and lessons as a parent, a spouse, and a fellow human. Every podcast episode is a reminder to wake up to our lives; to be ever more mindful, self-aware, and compassionate in how we parent and how we treat ourselves and others. We show up as our authentic selves and incorporate what we love—music, movies and humor—in our conversations about spiritual growth, emotional intelligence and compassion—to make our relationships around us more connected, and our world more compassionate. We hope you enjoy! ~Cathy and Todd Adams
