The View From The Shore – October 2015 Letter from the Editor
Celebrate Attachment Parenting Month
And then, celebrate Attachment Parenting Month with an interview featuring Attachment Parenting International founders, Lysa Parker and Barbara Nicholson, who reveal how Mindful Parenting Is The Spiritual Essence of Attachment. Well, of course it is! Attachment parenting advocates simply being responsive to our babies and children, which requires our mindful presence, which results in a spiritual approach to parenting… head slap, ow! Their book,Attached at the Heart, provides parents with the practical guidance for integrating the eight principles of AP into the reality of their daily lives. Lysa and Barbara’s Parenting As A Hero’s Journey is now ON DEMAND. The PAHJ retreat is a way for you to join the Fellowship of the Sling for needed self-nurturing.

Rest for a Cause – Conscious Parenting In Africa!
Finally, after a day of wave-riding, what if you could REST FOR A CAUSE? What if you could learn how to find restorative rest in 15 minutes a day and support a worthy cause like the Parent Liberation Alliance’s conscious parenting work in Africa? YOU CAN and this brilliant gentle head slap idea comes from Karen Brody who is helping PLA, a sister initiative, raise needed funds with a Rest for a Cause. Starting November 3rd all registered participants in Rest for a Cause will embark on 15 minutes of ‘rest’ practicing a sleep-based meditation technique from Bold Tranquility for 21 days and simultaneously raising money for the Parent Liberation Alliance. Please support this worthy cause here.
