ABOUT RAISING CONSCIOUS CHILDREN
Our First Instructional Guides
Raising Conscious Children One Village at a Time – Helping Children Cultivate Love from Within is innovative in its approach to traditional Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) for children. The foundation of the work stems from the overarching understanding that our primary purpose on the planet is to continually grow and expand – and become better and better versions of ourselves in the process.
This learning orientation towards life shifts the current methods used in attempting to solve the problems facing our youth from reactive to proactive. It shifts the paradigm from viewing the world as a difficult and negative place to understanding that the world is an ever-expanding, beautiful and benevolent place to live. It teaches children that life is for us, not against us. Experiencing “negativity” is simply a part of the process – and can be used as a catalyst for more growth and expansion.
When life is experienced through such a lens, children can relax into the whole of who they are and discover their heart-felt purpose for being in the world. These are big concepts. So how do we teach this to our children?
It starts with teaching children to live from a place of love, to be love, to emanate love, and consequently attract love. It begins by teaching them that they are already whole, and everything they need is already within them.
The skills in our Instructional Guides help children evolve in ways that allow them to discover and express their unique gifts, talents, and abilities. Children are guided in living from a place of love and in developing a learning orientation towards life. The result of this way of being provides children with the opportunity to feel good, do what they love every single day, and ultimately make a positive contribution to our world.

Very engaging, easy to follow lessons. Fills in the social-emotional gaps missing in our academic-focused curriculum.
As a 4th grade teacher I was fortunate enough to implement the program in my classroom. It was unbelievable to see such a break through and shift of energy from day one! Thanks to the multi sensory use of audio, read aloud, guided discussion, and students written or drawn responses. I was able to see students succeed in meditating and creating a safe place and I even had one student cry from her release of emotions she felt. It was so successful with my students that I brought it home to use with my own children. They are very empathetic and sensitive and this has really has helped them in their journey. I absolutely recommend it!
We listened to you read this morning on the drive to my parents. The kids were captivated. Alex (7 yrs old) kept asking why Mekhi wasn’t being nice to himself. Charlie (9 yrs old) said he wants to know more about Mekhi. Does he have siblings? Does his mom work? Thanks so much for this book!
