Conscious Parenting Part 3: Getting Out of the Way

By Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D.

The last post in this series on Conscious Parenting addressed how to recognize our children’s highest potential and why it is important to move out of the way of its expression. The question we were left with was, “How do I get out of the way?” One of the best ways to get out of the way is to look at your attachments to having your child be a particular way. Those attachments are probably a function of something that did not work in your own childhood.

A Meeting of the Ways with Diane Solomon

Diane Solomon, host of A Meeting of the Ways on KKUP, and Isa Gucciardi discuss the fundamental principles of working with the energy of light and sound in the healing environment.

On this episode, host Laura Chandler catches up with acclaimed author and channel Paul Selig in the offices of Smoothjazz Global, in Monterey, CA. Paul was in town for an extended teaching schedule at The Esalen Institute in Big Sur. He was near the end of his five-week stint when he and Laura got together to discuss his latest book, The Book of Truth, his approach to channeling, and how it all started. Paul’s channeling style is unique. He makes it clear that what comes through him is not him, but a group of Guides with their very own agenda. His books are channeled and published verbatim with no editing, except for spelling errors. The rapidity at which the material comes through Paul, and the palpable energy in the room when he channels, has convinced many people of his authenticity. In this interview, the Guides make an unexpected appearance to answer a question Laura asked Paul about the work.

Paul Selig

Award-winning author and channel Paul Selig will lead an intimate channeled workshop where his Guides will offer direct teaching in their practical program for achieving personal growth and overcoming obstacles. Paul and his Guides will lead workshop participants on an unprecedented journey of self-development to achieve new levels of alignment, healing and life purpose and freedom from patterns of limitation and fear. Register now, and gain tools to transform your life and awaken to your own divine nature.

Conscious Parenting Part 2: Children's Highest Potential

By Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D.

If I had to define one goal that we, as parents, must do our best to attain, it would be to protect and cultivate our children’s highest potential in the world. Naturally, every child’s highest potential has its own expression. Every child has a set of gifts that she brings into the world that resonate with the child’s deepest calling. You will find that I use the phrase “highest potential” interchangeably here with “a child’s deepest calling,” “the child’s most authentic expression,” and “the child’s gifts,” because each of these offers a different view and definition that points to the complexity of the deepest aspects of our children.

But how do we support our children’s authentic expression in the world?

Conscious Parenting Part 1: Six Essential Questions for Parents

By Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D.

I am a parent of two children, and I have been counseling and teaching families and individuals for more than twenty years. Over the course of the last ten years, I have seen many of the central issues around parenting shift drastically, mainly due to the more central role that technology now plays in the family.

The challenges that parents face today in raising children are very different from the challenges their parents faced. Not only do parents have to figure out how to function on less sleep, they also have to determine the role they want technology to play in their children’s lives. As parents find themselves with less time than they would like to be able to devote to parenting, they have to come up with clear strategies for enrichment, discipline, and many other important issues. This is difficult when people find themselves trying to navigate the issues around work-life balance, and face down issues such as self-doubt and guilt about the choices they must make.

Conflict As A Gateway To Peace

The Inner Truth podcast looks at the central questions of human life, what does it mean to be human, and how can we be fully alive? Inner Truth explores answers to these questions through ancient and contemporary spiritual wisdom along with insights from the fields of psychology, philosophy, and mythology. It also looks at the role of shamanism, meditation, and reconnection with nature as tributaries into the inner self, the wellspring of our inner source in knowledge.

In the premier episode, Inner Truth host David Newell catches up with Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D. – Founding Director and lead teacher of the Foundation of the Sacred Stream – to talk about conflict, the ways we can take steps to resolve it, and how it can be gateway to profound internal growth and healing.

When people decide they want to grow and develop themselves in their careers, the skills they usually start building first tend to be externally focused. People might want to be hirable in new ways or in new industries, and they also may want to help more and be of service more. Eventually, what people come up against isn’t the challenge of the work they are doing but the challenge of themselves:
