"Parents . . . you will be wowed and awed by [Dr. Shefali]." —Oprah Winfrey

As seen on Oprah’s SuperSoul Sunday,
 a radically transformative plan that shows parents how to raise children to be their best, truest selves, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Parent.

What if...?

What if I told you that you can put an end to all of your parenting struggles?

That you can learn to parent without fear or anxiety?

That you can end conflict with your children?

That you can create close and connected relationships within your family?

…Would you accept this invitation to a revolution in parenting? 

We all have the capacity to raise children who are highly resilient and emotionally connected. However, many of us are unable to because we are blinded by modern misconceptions of parenting and our own inner limitations. In The Awakened Family, I show you how you can cultivate a relationship with your children so they can thrive; moreover, you can be transformed to a state of greater calm, compassion and wisdom as well.

This book will take you on a journey to transcending your fears and illusions around parenting and help you become the parent you always wanted to be: fully present and conscious. It will arm you with practical, hands-on strategies and real-life examples from my experience as a parent and clinical psychologist that show the extraordinary power of being a conscious parent. 

Everyone in your family is ready to be awakened.

Will you take this journey with me?

This book has 11 discs, it took all of the time I had with the material - so do not wait to start listening! This approach is accepting what you feel inside as a parent, yet not putting it all over your child, learning how to embody what it is you want them to be; if your child is anxious, you become more calm. There is much more, and I highly recommend for BOTH parents!!

This book is a must of every parent!! Chapters 17 and on especially--if this was a gem mine, it belongs in the upper echelon of things that a valuable to know as parents and should be required reading before you can leave your delivery bedside with your newborn. I'm not saying everything was easy and I am not denying some huge holes of naivity in this book at all, but what I am saying is this nugget will save some lives and make a HUGE, OVERWHELMING difference in parent-child dynamics whereever it is read and deeply accepted and practiced. May grace be with you from one mother's heart to another.
