Can raising an emotionally balanced child of sound mind and greater awareness, help children better navigate through life?
Starting in her own family, Courtney Jolivette - a holistic herbalist, a birth Doula, and author of “Make Vegan Taste Good”, a collection of simple recipes for parents who don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen and want a healthier alternative - has done just that. Courtney taught her kids to practice meditation and yoga - with a recent Instagram video of her two year old meditating to a singing bowl - and now helps other moms do the same.
She is a mother of four beautiful children, ages 2 to 12, with a passion for living a peaceful, balanced, plant based, and holistic lifestyle.
From downsizing to live into a converted school bus with her 4 children, to buying less clothing, and living a minimalistic and holistic lifestyle, Courtney lives by her own advice she gives her children - to be exactly who you want to be. She believes happiness is knowing that you are living in your own truth not the expectations of others.
With a family of three growing boys and a two year old, Courtney credits her children, as some of her greatest teachers of life. She manages their different personalities by navigating through their emotions with different techniques, and using her own peaceful practices - such as meditation - to help them navigate through their troubles.
Courtney loves ethically made, sustainable brands, and supports black-owned businesses when she can.
This is an timely and inspiring conversation with a single mom, choosing to follow her calling to live a minimalistic, and balanced life, and teaching her children how to find their own independence, inner peace, and compassion and respect for nature and life itself.
