Another compelling exploration in the Poetry of Predicament podcast series; dedicated to fully embracing the magnificence of our imperfection as we navigate a more life-giving parenting process for ourselves and our children.
These are not ‘business as usual’ times. We can feel the compression that is taking place on all levels of our expression, as a species. Our ability to birth the next generation ensures that we continue to exist. Could there be anything more critical than the care of those children?
The parenting process is the conduit… the delivery mechanism… that ensures that one generation imprints culture on the next. Clearly, from what we are now living, we are long overdue for an overhaul of what we consider ‘normal’ and ‘good’ and ‘standard’ to pass on to the next generation. And that overhaul must first occur in the mind/life of the parent, that subsequent freedoms might take root in the generation to come.
My experience of listening to this conversation? What these two women have created is the footprint-made-visible of what ‘hope’ demands of us all if it is to breathe Life into our reality. Incredibly solid…. and affirming… while compelling and invitational.
Please share this conversation with people you care about. We may not all be parents and we have all been parented. First, we must free ourselves that our children might come to know and recognize what freedom is.
