Hey hippie/ hipster/ nature based/ Waldorf/ Montessori/ home school leaning parents! Have you tried to connect with other parents and kids only to find half the kids can operate an iPhone or iPad more proficiently than you? Do you want to find other parents who are conscious of introducing technology to their kids, who are thinking about the quality of the food their family eats, and who are trying to raise kids in a spiritually and ecologically mindful way? Are you interested in expanding your community not only for the nourishment of your own soul but also so that your kid has many solid relationships with other conscious adults? This group is aimed at gathering parents of kids ages 1-5 (roughly) for playtime, conversation, support, and fun! This is meant to be a place where everyone enjoys connecting with each other and we take the time to create community. We are about slowing down to the pace of our children and allowing them to teach us in the world. We also aim to cultivate certain qualities of relationship and life on the whole. While this may sound super serious, I really want it to be a fun way for like minded parents and families to connect. If we can get a group of 4-6 people interested I will schedule an open house or a park playdate. Or if someone else has an idea as to where/ how to meet up, feel free to make it happen! This is for Oakland/ Berkeley/ El Cerrito areas primarily, but I am open to more geographic diversity if need be. Cheers!
