Confronting Doubt, Shame and Fear

Confronting Doubt, Shame and Fear

Host Donna Freeman discusses how to work with kids darker sides with guest Cheryl Crawford, founder of Grounded.

Discover how addressing kids darker states of mind can relieve their perceived expectations of always having to be happy. This awareness leads to lighter and brighter clarity.

Learn how allowing and recognizing shame, doubt and fear in the lives of youth, helps them to feel whole, to recognize themselves and to know they are perfect just the way they are today.

Cheryl will provide specific examples from her work with at-risk and under-served populations in Atlanta.

Ayurveda for Kids with Cate Stillman

Ayurveda for Kids with Cate Stillman

Can’t believe it … I fed my kids completely the wrong thing for breakfast (according to Ayurvedic principles). But what did I know. I’ve eaten it all my life.

Thank goodness for Cate Stillman, YogaHealer, and her easy to employ body care skills.

As I spoke with Cate during our recent interview the idea of adopting a few basic Ayurvedic practices into our lives felt more and more doable. I have a very basic understanding of Ayurveda and know I’m a strong Pitt with Vata tendencies and some ways to help keep that in balance. But there is tons I don’t know, especially as it relates to my family and raising my children with awareness of their bodies. Sure we do yoga together, make what I believe to be healthy food choices most of the time (… I do love my chocolate), and try to get adequate rest. However, I also know that we could live healthier, more vital lives with a few tweaks here and there.

Enjoy Cate’s:

  • suggestions for curing mouth breathing and the reasons why nostril breathing is so important
  • recipe for Boo Candy and why you’ll want to make it part of your daily diet (I’m making some today)
  • tips on living a snot-free life
  • and much more
