What do you do when you have little kids and your life falls apart? Cheryl Jones knows that answer to this question all too well. She discovered that her marriage was unravelling at at child's birthday party.  Some big takeaways from this episode include: 1. Social conditioning has lead us not to recognize things in our life as loss. We have to acknowledge what the loss is. We tend to do that to “be strong” for our families. If we don’t acknowledge, it shows up somewhere else. 2. Self-care is not a “nice to have.” 3. How striving sucks the joy out of a day. Non-striving is an attitude of mindfulness - it’s about how we’re going about achieving our goals. Cheryl Jones, M.A., is a wellness strategist, keynote speaker, and author.

Be prepared to have the ground under your feet shifted by the powerful wisdom of Hal Runkel. He’ll question your basic beliefs and transform the way you think about parenting. Some big takeaways from this episode include: 1. The most damaging lie of parenting is that we are responsible FOR our children. 2. Kids are born to test us. Parenting asks us that we become grown ups and we do that by becoming less reactive and taking back the power over our emotional responses. 3. The mandate for self-care in the Christian and Hebrew traditions in “Love thy neighbor as you love thyself.” And the tough question that makes us really confront that.

We can use our minds to actually change the brain’s function and structure. Dan Siegel is known as a mindfulness expert and for his work developing the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology. Dr. Siegel is Founding Co-Director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center.

Hunter talks to Todd & Cathy Adams about How To Be A Zen Parent. Some big takeaways from this episode include: 1. The goal of zen parenting is not to pass your baggage down to your own children.

The goal is to raise adults. The most important thing is to have a connection and a relationship. 3. When our kids are young we need an acceptance of how hard it is, AND what are the things you can let go of? How can you simplify? The only way you can take care of people is to put yourself first. 4. “It is not your child’s job to make you happy.” Todd and Cathy Adams are the hosts of the Zen Parenting Radio podcast.

How can we create family relationships that weather any storm? Dr. Shauna Shapiro explains how our old paradigms of parenting get it wrong, and research-proven ways to become a mindful mama.  Some important takeaways from this conversation: “What you practice grows stronger.” If we practice judgement, we become more judgmental. If we practice kindness, we strengthen hat. We know that with neuroplasticity, our repeated experiences shape the brain. Shame actually prevents us from making the changes that we want to make. Instead, kindness releases dopamine and turns ON the learning centers of the brain, activating us for change. As a parent, you can be in your sovereignty and power, hold boundaries, and keep a soft heart. Click here to start the conversation about this episode! Shauna Shapiro, PhD, is a professor, author, and internationally recognized expert in mindfulness and compassion. Dr. Shapiro has published over 100 journal articles and book chapters, and co-authored the critically acclaimed texts, The Art and Science of Mindfulness, and Mindful Discipline.

Life regularly squeezes us. No matter how much we try to avoid or block out the difficult moments, they're inevitable. That's just life.  The real question is, how do we respond to those moments?  Do you shame and blame yourself with harsh words?  Or do you offer yourself compassion, understanding, and kindness?   This episode is a very special one taken from a live talk I did last October at the Mindful Mom Revolution event.  Start the conversation about this episode here!

Hunter talks to Kimberly Johnson about healing, balancing and restoring post-childbirth. Hunter’s big takeaways from this episode: There are big problems with the way we handle birth and the post-partum period that are leading to long-term problems for moms. We have unrealistic expectations about 4th trimester; healing is slow. We treat it like it’s any other time. We don’t understand that there are specific needs. There are 5 universal needs and these are necessities not luxuries: Rest - deep, extended rest 30-45 days lying in period Nourishing food Loving touch Companionship of wise women Contact with nature Click here to see the show notes and leave your comments! Kimberly Johnson is a birth doula, Somatic Experiencing practitioner, Sexological Bodyworker, postpartum advocate and single mom. She is the author of the new book, The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring your Vitality.
