Non-Traditional Parents Group

This class is intended to provide support to people with children who are raising their children or living their own lives in a non-traditional way.  We seek to share our experiences, thoughts and compassion with others who share the common bond of raising a young person in a time of revolution.  The subject of our meetings will ultimately be based on what the group would like to discuss but some subjects may include.

How we support our children in their individuality

How we deal with troubling behavior

How we deal with images and ideas from the media

Recipe shares/ diet

How we keep politically involved as parents

How we involve our children in the world

How we expose or shelter our children from politics 

How we embrace non-conformity in our households 

How we deal with critisism from the outside world

 

Children are welcome!

Facilitator's experience: 
I believe everyone of us is able to heal ourselves from much suffering through accessing universal energy & using techniques for relaxation. Healing ourselves is an act of liberation. Over the past twenty-some years, I have studied energy healing traditions such as Usui Reiki, Qi Gong, Massage, Reflexology, Authentic Movement & Sound Healing. I have co-created a healing system based on personal ancestry & archetypes called Old Ways Healing. I am also a Reiki Master and co-founder of Lucky Palm Healing Arts in Minneapolis. I hold a Masters in Human Development: Educational Psychology, a BA in Holistic Education with a minor in Intermedia Arts & a Women's Studies Certificate. I have been blessed with awesome teachers! Some of them are listed here: --Nirhebe --Master Lin --Yeye Luisah Teish --Iya Origbega --Iya Amoke Kubat
