Becoming a Soulful Parent

 

Ayeka’s Becoming a Soulful Parent (BSP) program trains parents and educators nationwide to lead a different kind parenting group. Our groups:

  • Empower parents to listen to their inner wisdom and depend less on external experts
  • Inspire parents with insights from Jewish wisdom
  • Create deep connections for parents who are often ‘too busy’ for new friends
  • Open up pathways for personal and spiritual growth

With topics on love, cultivating presence and sibling rivalry, BSP is for parents who want to take time out of their busy lives to tune in to the parents they want to become.

Interested in joining the conversation? We invite you to a two part webinar series (join one or both!) facilitated by Dasee Berkowitz.

Spiritual Check-In: Parenting During a Pandemic

Our lives are being turned upside down now. As parents we carry an extra responsibility of holding steady for our children through it all. Join us for a spiritual check-in. Let’s ground ourselves in Jewish wisdom and reflection to remember that we are not alone and we have the inner resources to move through this period with grace and love.

This seder night will be different from all others. Let’s start to prepare ourselves soulfully for the seder. Soon we will all become storytellers.

Becoming a Soulful Parent it answered a need in my life; the need for connection, reinforcement and validation. — Mother of three

Becoming a Soulful Parent… made me feel less alone. I appreciated being able to devote time to my partner and discussing our children in the context of meaningful texts. — Mother of two

We are all trying to “do it right.” Having a cadre of fellow parents – all of whom make mistakes like the rest of us – who are willing to slow down the intensity of life with kids to connect, listen, reflect and consider the most soulfully wise approaches to raising children is refreshing and extremely helpful. — Father of two
