There’s nothing like parenting to push you to the edge of joy and frustration, exhilaration and exhaustion, hope and fear. It requires confronting the essential questions. Join us to consider parenting as a spiritual practice, exploring how we can mindfully, authentically and consciously honor the work of soul-shaping, for us and our kids.
A panel discussion led by Stephanie Hunt, a mother of three, writer and Vanderbilt Divinity School graduate.
