7 transformative, 2-hour gatherings
Wednesdays, 9:15 AM – 11:15 AM

Maple Village Waldorf School in Long Beach
Explore the power of less to bring more peace and connection to your family.  Join a small group of parents of young children (1 – 9 years old) and learn to:

– identify and prioritize what matters most for your unique family
– recognize when your child (or you) is overwhelmed so you can bring healing
– creatively address your child’s misbehavior and build connection
– strengthen your ability to stay calm in the middle of big emotions
– become more united with your co-parent

Together, we will strengthen our ability to simplify and slow down the home environment, create predictable and connecting rhythms, simplify your schedule and filter out adult concerns & media.

Space is limited to only 10 parents.
The curriculum for each gathering builds upon the previous one.
Tuition is $225 per person (or $375 per couple)
