The Conscious Parent
Transforming ourselves and empowering our children...
The time has come for parenting to become what it was always meant to be- about the parent. Dr. Shefali Tsabary details how our children can be raised as conscious adults only when we as parents allow ourselves to be raised into a higher state of consciousness.
Turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head, Dr. Tsabary sifts the epicenter of the parent-child relationship away from the traditional parent-to-child 'know it all' approach to a mutual parent-with-child relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child.
This innovative parenting style recognises the child's potential to spark a deep soul-searching, leading to transformation in parents. Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents' psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parents' development
Once parents are learning alongside their children, power, control and dominance become and archaic language. Instead, mutual kinship and spiritual partnership are the focus of the parent-child journey.
Because parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness, traditional books on parenting abound with clever techniques for control, together with quick fixes for dysfunctionality.
In contrast, Dr Tsabary's conscious approach to parenting, children serve as mirrors of the parent's forgotten self. Once a parent finds their way back to their essence, they enter into communion with their children. Parent and child awaken to the ability to relate in a state of presence. Shefali Tsabary
, PhD received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University, New York. Dr. Tsabary was exposed to Easter mindfulness at an early age and integrates its teaching with Western psychology. This bend of East and West allows her to reach a global audience. Her ability to appeal to both a psychologically astute and consciousness-driven audience establishes her as one of a kind in the parenting field.
Dr. Tsabary has worked with a vaired demographic: survivors of the Asian Tsunami, women from economically disadvantages countries, inner city youth, suburban families, the elderly and infirm and corporate leaders. She lectures extensively on mindful living and conscious parenting around the world and is in private practice. She resides with her husband and daughter in New York.
