To parent in 2024 is to nurture along curious, tender kids, teenagers, and young adults amidst the backdrop of a human-driven extinction crisis; the ongoing, televised genocide of over 10,000 Palestinian children; and hundreds of millions of kids with food scarcity. The entire global ecology is saturated with human impact and there’s no bubble strong enough to shelter the younger ones from our collective crossroads.

Earth-honoring ways of knowing are being embraced again while hazardous supremacy-based systems continue to salt the Earth and bring ruin to life. In the best of times, parenting is a life-changing commitment that tests our values and stamina; all the more so now. Time with kids can bring joy, magic, and tenderness as well as heartbreak and a chance to revisit the vulnerability of our own childhood, including as it speaks through the present.

Raising kind, clever, and culturally courageous children is one of the most subversive and impactful ways to support long-term systemic change.

This course is for anyone spending dedicated time with children, teenagers, and/or young adults or hoping to step into that capacity more in the future. Participants will learn the importance of rites of passage, honoring soul-level differences, and the link between parenting styles and political change work. We’ll emphasize kind and effective ways to instill Earth-honoring, decolonial values and teach ritual life-skills for a world that includes genocide, systemic violence, and ecological catastrophe alongside tremendous human beauty and tenderness.

Course material will be rooted in an inclusive, international ethic that includes respect for diverse approaches to parenting younger ones of all ages. Teachings will give care to the massive economic disparities between the Global North and South and how this presents regarding access to care and resources and navigating the realities of systemic oppression. We’ll be unflinching in our acknowledgement of the political, but the focus of this course is heart-connected and pragmatic. The core of the conversation will be spiritually-attuned, culturally-liberatory parenting. Each lesson will include Q&A and opportunities for guided practice, and the learning space will be lively and engaging.

*The timing of live calls for this course will favor participants in Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Thanks to our community of learners in Asia and Oceania for your understanding around the challenges of international inclusivity. All who register get lifetime access to recordings, and you’re welcome to send in questions ahead of time for Daniel to answer during live calls or in written form.
