Publisher’s Description: 

This Workbook is the companion volume to Conscious Parenting by Lee Lozowick (Hohm Press, 2010) and is designed be a useful map for parents, prospective parents and child-care-givers on this adventure. The Workbook (like Conscious Parenting itself) aims to assist readers in aligning with a big view of the subject – an overall context from which to parent and educate. Uniquely, Lozowick’s work spoke to the ways and means for transforming ordinary family life with children into a primary means of spiritual practice, including the inevitable challenges for work-on-self.

The Workbook follows the chapter-topics contained in the original book, covering subjects from enlightened birth practices, breastfeeding, our use of language with children, the limiting of early exposure to technology and negative influences for youngsters, to the creation of environments of safety and sanctuary for our teenagers. The contributors to this Workbook—headed by Bhadra Mitchell, project manager and primary editor—are all longtime students of Lee Lozowick. Some are parents, others grandparents, others friends of community families, some are mentors for children. Beneficially, each of them received Lee Lozowick’s teaching firsthand. This Conscious Parenting Workbook can be used alone or with interested others to:

  • Clarify your own innate wisdom of parenting
  • Engage the wise counsel of other experienced parents
  • Motivate and guide “work-on-self” as the basis for conscious parenting
  • Stimulate compassion and self-honesty
  • Structure a support group with others

Conscious parenting engaged as a personal practice can bring up fear, pride, remorse, emotional sensitivity and all the difficulties involved in any human relationship. It is a great gift, then, to have a group in which to share these issues; a place to go where others are grappling with the same things. The ability to refer together to the wise counsel of a wise elder (in person or through the medium of a book) is a way is to collectively open our own wisdom-minds and compassion-hearts to what we know but may be too timid to accept; a way to up-level our complaints and discouragements to the domain of spiritual practice; a way to create a bonded group support that relies upon grace and the inspiration of a “higher power,” in discerning the truth of any situation. The book Conscious Parenting is such a resource. The Conscious Parenting Workbook is the auxiliary tool for applying and extending that wisdom.
