These are our babies, no matter how old they are! As their parents, we are tasked with not only caring for all of their basic needs, but also teaching them, supporting them, and loving them no matter what!
This is as personal and emotionally charged as it gets!
I spent a long time contemplating the creation of this course. On one hand, I felt a strong calling to further my mission of making sure no parent or ally felt alone. On the other hand, I was highly aware of the sensitive and oftentimes, confidential, nature of this topic.
I have felt the fear, uncertainty, overwhelm, frustration, and cluelessness first hand. It is not fun!
As our journey continues to progress and our joy and shifts grow, so has my compassion and empathy for others on a similar path - parents, allies, and kids alike!
This is hard! But embracing all of the truths, immersing yourself in education, learning to empower and be empowered, and most of all, learning to love unconditionally is worth it!
So, ultimately, I decided to create a course that incorporated everything my husband, Steve, and I wish we would have had access to or known when Connor first came out and in those first few years.
Think of Learning to Just Breathe as a beautiful space where hundreds of hours of research, talking with professionals, soul-searching, crying, shifting, and self-discovery all around are organized into delightfully presented steps that make your journey of processing and shifting exponentially easier!
