Intro to Positive Parenting in the Greatness Chair ™ - Course Description

Intro to Positive Parenting in the Greatness Chair is an introduction to the two pillars of my Greatness Chair Solution Method- Heart Rhythm Meditation and the Greatness Chair ™ strategy. In this course, you will be taken through a journey to understand the significance of this approach by looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the current mental health paradigm and how moving in the direction of seeing strengths and greatness in the greatness chair can yield big dividends for our children and ourselves! Heart Rhythm Meditation is a type of meditation which helps us move into the social engagement network of our nervous system so we can see greatness.

Although this is an introductory course, it is packed full of value. If you do the activities outlined in this class, I have no doubt you will experience transformations in your family. This is the foundational piece of the 8 weeks program outlined in my book The Greatness Chair Solution. If you master the skills in this course and want more, the book is there for you to take it further on your own. You will be capable of this after taking this course.

In my work with parents and teachers, I found they often knew what they were supposed to do, but were unable to implement many social and emotional approaches due to overwhelm and stress. This led to feelings of helplessness and loss of confidence with shame and guilt not far behind. We as adults caring for children need a method to put our own oxygen mask on first and heart rhythm meditation makes that possible. Also we learn to hear the deep voice of the heart to help us anchor our beliefs and ideals into our emotions and bodies.

The heart has a power and we need to use it to help see the truth of our children and ourselves. The mind is a companion but we can widen it with the wisdom in our hearts.
