    Relisten: 10 Reasons Why Retreats Are Important - Carla Naumburg [480]

    Why are retreats important? There are many reasons: they allow you to pull back, get inspired, become spacious, detox, and find your people. Besides which, you get away from your children, have someone else cook you dinner, and have uninterrupted adult conversations! In this episode, regular guest Carla Naumburg and I talk about why we all need to retreat now and then.

    Queer Family Life & Raising Inclusive Kids - Jaimie Kelton [479]

    Queer Family Life & Raising Inclusive Kids - Jaimie Kelton [479]

    There are all kinds of families, and while a majority may be heteronormative with a mom and a dad, plenty of kids grow up in families that don’t fit that mold. Plus, we don’t really know what the gender expression or sexuality of our children may ultimately be. So how do we talk about these things with our kids? How do we raise kids who feel accepted no matter what and are accepting of others? Hunter talks to Jaimie Kelton of The Queer Family Podcast.

A Must for Parents

The sooner you listen to this for your kids the better

Grateful

I am so grateful to have found this podcast focused on lifelong changes, healing intergenerational trauma, and daily mindfulness. I’ve listened to four episodes and have 400+ to go 😆. Thank you.

Janiffer Hadley ,

FANTASTIC!

This podcast is fantastic! I am so happy I found it. Society is in a “gentle parenting” era. Most of the time I just feel guilty and like a less then stellar parent after reading or listening to what I’m doing wrong with no advice on how to fix things. Hunter offers up great advice, steps to handling the situation, and ways to focus on internal reflection before addressing external situations.
