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
“When I read Chris' blog I am inevitably reminded of what is important: being present and conscious with the one's I love. Chris teaches with love, depth, curiosity, and the pure desire to create a world where children grow into the mature adults they are meant to be. I attended one of his classes the last time I was in San Francisco. I felt like I was one of those lucky people who got the chance to sit in a small group with a teacher who would soon only be able to be seen in rooms of 500 or more.” — Heather Stein, LCSW, mother of two
