Parenting: Finding Yourself on the Path of Unconditional Love (Whether you like it or not!)

with Roger Guest
March 5 / 5:30 PM - March 5 / 7:30 PM

Our children demand a degree of intelligence and presence from us that we never suspected was possible.  They trust us to be strong, kind, wise and sane guides in a world that seems increasingly mean, aggressive and chaotic. They believe in our goodness even when we are ready to give up on ourselves.  In fact, it is hard to imagine more challenging, wonderful, painful, and compassionate teachers than our children or a more unrelenting path than that of simply being a parent.

Sitting 5:30 -6:30

Talk begins at 6:30 followed by a light reception
