About the Event

Hello & Welcome, 

This FREE Zoominar is for all parents and educators. You will experience an overview of The 5 Strategies of The Virtues Project.

If you're reading this, don't look away until you've read through  to see the difference that what I bring may make. Diamonds in the Rough is about parenting but it's also about learning to be that canary in the diamond mine. We must be sensitive to the atmosphere, vocal about our feelings & detached enough to keep them safe without controling. We must also have the tools to teach our children to do the same. It is not simple or easy but once you learn to use the 5 simple strategies ©The Virtues Project, it makes all the difference!

  1. Do you find yourself in power struggles with your children, regardless of the age/stage or issue? 
  2. Are you looking for compassionate & respectful interactions but don't know how to get there?
  3. What is the biggest challenge you have right now in your parenting? 
  • In this webinar you will:
  1. Learn the ACT with Tact method of acknowledgment, correction and thanking. ©
  2. Understand what setting clear boundaries means and HOW consequences are an opportunity to learn.
  3. Learn to foster deep & meaningful conversations that focus using strategic listening and practicing presence.

Understanding the virtues that are present in our children's choices helps us to reclaim our energy, our time and our health. Simple exercises bring intimate conversation, practice & education together. In this course you will learn to recognize the power of language, how it effects us. There are opportunities built into the program to help deepen engagement, reflect upon & integrate the learning. This is more than a workshop. It's an experience. Small group boundaries establish the safe & caring circle experience of all. This program anchors to the sacred art of parenting gems in a diamond mine - sustainability matters!

"I appreciate the quick pace & variance between types of instructional strategies; the positive atmosphere; and how the Facilitator sought participation in a safe, non-threatening way"

"The pace was graceful; I will treasure every moment spent in conversation, communion and active learning. This was truly a masters course squeezed into a few hours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
