The Spiritual P.A.T.H. to a Thriving Family
Many of us experience a disconnect between the vision we hold for ourselves as people, parents and partners, and their day-to-day reality. Despite self-awareness, spiritual practices, and good intentions, we often find ourselves second-guessing decisions or welling up with guilt, shame, and confusion during those high-stress moments as parents and partners. We want to have loving and deep connections with our partners. We want to raise resilient, confident children who live fulfilled lives but at times we feel clueless, deflated, and as if they we’re falling short. In The Spiritual Path to a Thriving Family, attendees will explore four paths they can take to embrace parenting and their partnerships as a spiritual practice. They will learn key ways they and their family can feel more present, resilient and connected to each other and their Highest and wisest selves. Specifically, Dr. Willis will walk attendees through her Spiritual P.A.T.H. Framework TM and Elemental Living Model for Parenting and Personal Leadership. Dr. Willis invites attendees to deepen their awareness of their relationship with their children and partners by exploring what it means to view relationships as a spiritual practice.
