Cultivating Mindfulness in Parenting After Divorce: BlogTalk Radio Interview
As my profile indicates, I'm not a lawyer. I'm a twice divorced mom who speaks to parents about the benefits of mindful divorce and guides them on that journey -- a journey which I champion through Collaborative Practice and Mediation. I don't focus on the process, I focus on the parent's mindset - reminding them to turn inward and to take control of their actions and their thoughts. This then opens them to divorced-parenting that nurtures their child's spirit.

"A beautiful outcome of the work that I've been doing is that I've become aware of a whole movement of lawyers who are turning away from the confrontational model and I've become a huge champion of the work that they are doing. On my website […] I have a link to Collaborative Practice lawyers. The model of divorce that these lawyers are learning and bringing to clients is phenomenal and my goal is to get parents to start recognizing that they can go through this process in a mindful way; in a way that honors themselves, and their child, and honors the spouse that they are separating from."
Just as I desperately want more lawyers to embrace this model, I have heard your desire to have more clients that are seeking this model. Feel free to pass this audio link on to clients or potential clients to help them take that deep breath in and out, so that you can move forward in the Collaborative Process.
