Compassionate Parenting Beach Camping Weekend

  • Sep 14, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our hope and vision is to provide a space for families to gather, live, support each other, and connect to their children in a 'no-fault zone', compassionate heart space.

We hope to co-create this weekend with you and enjoy nature, connect with each other, offer empathic space and support for all.

Using Open Space Technology, we envision that individuals will offer their unique gifts to each other such as discussions around Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Parenting, Peace Dialogue/Circle role-plays, social-emotional games with children, cooperative games, and any other services like Reiki, yoga, tai chi... or simply enjoying the beach and building sand castles!
