Do you need a break, but don’t like parking your kids in front of a screen?
You’ve read the books and done the workshops in spiritual growth and personal development, and you’re keen to share what you’ve learned with your children. You want to surround them with what nurtures them emotionally and spiritually.
But creating all that on your own is hard. Even if you find others who share your values, you often feel like you are swimming against the mainstream tide.
And yet you also need time out from parenting! You know that you can only give them your best when you have also nurtured yourself. Sometimes just half an hour’s break can make a huge difference.
But leaving your children with the TV, the gaming console or the internet? Most mainstream forms of children’s entertainment don’t reflect your values. They don’t help you create the healthy cultural field you want your kids to be growing up in. You know that stories are like food for children, and you don’t want your children absorbing junk stories any more than you’d want them eating junk food.
Ideally the stories our children would hear would help them to uncover their highest potential. They would teach them that our hearts are happier when open, even to painful feelings, than when closed, and that love is the balm that can heal all wounds. They would inspire them to trust in their inner resources, and to know that the universe is a friendly place which wants the best for them, even if sometimes it doesn’t seem that way.
The Palace of Stories contains over one hundred stories like these, for children aged four to twelve.
I LOVE these stories! My kids do too. What really moves me is the authentic soulfulness with which you tell them. We love your music, your voices, your tenderness, your messages. These stories capture what I long to cultivate in my children – authentic belief in their inherent value, compassion for others, belief in wonder and magic, passionately imagining and going towards all that is possible.
Thank you for sharing yourself and your truth.
