Essential Parenting is an insight-based and practice-oriented parent education program that optimizes the developmental potential of both children and their parents. Essential Parenting classes will empower you to open beyond judgments and reactivity and return you to your innately wise, intuitive, and loving heart. In doing so, we support our children in becoming more fully themselves, creating a ripple effect of wholeness, confidence, and well-being in our communities and on our planet. Get Started.
What Parents Say
“Dr. Christopher White is as brilliant as he is compassionate. He offers a beautiful and integrative approach to parenting that will enrich your life as a parent, and nourish the internal life of your children. Chris brings humor, wisdom, and tremendous empathy to his work, and has deeply touched my own life as a mother, as well as the lives of my students. I give him my highest recommendation.” — Dr. Shauna L.
