Since not all of you could attend our Compassion Parenting Retreat, here's a little glimpse of our discussion on "grounded, loving presence." Also a challenge to #lovebigger, in memory of 9-year-old Cami...
What can we learn about parenting from a single mom of 3 who struggles with debilitating illness? A lot, it turns out. Listen to the stories and wisdom shared by Jenny--about the beautiful mother's day gift her daughter made for her and what she learned one day in a Walmart parking lot.
We often define health in terms of the absence of illness. In times of health, we often have the luxury of focusing on less weighty details, but when illness hits, it's a different story. In this episode, I interview Micah about her experience of parenting in the context of her young son's illness.
Motherhood comes in seasons. In this episode, I read the text from my published essay "Meeting them at the Bottom of the Slide" © 2020 Mary Illions Wilde, MD which captures my current season.
"Speak to us of Joy & Sorrow," writes the poet Kahlil Gibran. As parents we may cycle through joy & sorrow in a single day, but also, certain seasons of our parenthood may be weighted more heavily toward one than another. Joy and sorrow (and everything in between)--these are parts of life, but sometimes we receive less joy than is possible & carry more sorrow than necessary. In this episode, we'll discuss ways to process the unnecessary sorrows and gather the available joys.
In this episode, Dr. Mary Wilde discusses the importance of maintaining primary connection to the things you uniquely love, even during the busy season of parenting. As parents we often approach growth in one of 3 ways: -Giving up on the idea (thinking there’s no time for it or that it’s some kind of indulgence) -Pursuing growth in a balanced way (or) -Pursuing growth in an unbalanced way Except for periods of crisis or transition, we can usually find time to pursue growth by using "edge" time, protected time, or by involving our kids in the process. As we find ways to continue to grow, we will be more fulfilled and effective parents.
Compassion is always in season. In this episode, we discuss 4 ideas to help parents maintain sustainable compassion. 1 - Choosing compassion over empathy 2 - Honoring boundaries 3 - Connecting to source, and 4 - Applying GRACE--a specific framework developed by Dr. Joan Halifax for practicing compassion “in the trenches” "Life is the practice . . . when the practice gets hard, love yourself (and others) more." *Original music composed for Compassion Parenting by Ben Rodriguez https://soundcloud.com/bennicurious
