For Christmas week, we’ll be re-airing the best episodes of 2018. Today we present Mark’s interview with Doctor Shefali. In the new year, we’ll be starting with new episodes again. In the meantime, enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!
“The parenting paradigm that’s set up in mainstream culture is set-up to, quote-unquote, spiritually fail.”
– Doctor Shefali
Doctor Shefali Tsabary, PhD is an expert on parenting, having written several books, and most recently the book “The Awakened Family: How to Raise Empowered, Resilient, and Conscious Children.” She has spent her life learning from both Eastern and Western philosophy about the relationships between parents and children. A world – renowned clinical psychologist, TEDx Speaker and one of Oprah’s featured guests. Today, she sits down with Commander Divine to talk about the importance of parents essentially working on themselves, rather than trying to work on their children.
- We need to start recognizing that our children are just as human as we are, and we therefore have less control of them than we think we should—which is as it should be
- Both Western and Eastern philosophy, spirituality and psychology are needed to deal with the modern world
- real learning, unfortunately, often comes from great emotional pain
