Barrington Public Library invites parents to register for a five-week workshop on The Inner Journey of Being a Parent. This class is a time to explore with others how being a parent impacts our own inner development. As our children grow into unique human beings, we gain our own opportunity to grow and transform. We experience our own rewards and disappointments, and inevitably, come face to face with unconscious beliefs about our kids and ourselves. In each class there will be a meditation, a teaching about a reading, time for personal inquiries and explorations, and discussion. Led by Greg Knight.
Class participants will receive a free copy of Soul Without Shame by Byron Brown. Readings from Spacecruiser Inquiry by A.H. Almaas will also be provided.
Week 1 (Oct 2): Continually Open. Seeing and experiencing everything - your kids, your family, and yourself - freshly.
Week 2 (Oct 9): Bold Aliveness. Having the courage as a parent to change and expand.
