With Spring Break this month I pulled from reader suggestions for a topic relating to children and our personal spiritual practices. I find parenting is often seen as a barrier to navigate and fit around our personal ways of soul tending - many cling to this idea so much they will halt or stunt their own needed expressions. Truly, from my own experiences raising 3 solo, I view it rather as an invitation to let go a little more, get creative, and consider them as our valuable teachers in humour, wildness, and unabashed honesty.
Here are a few ideas on how you can bring your children closer into your practice, rather than trying to keep them out or that perpetual "waiting for a quiet moment or better timing" before tending to your soul work.
