Dear Friends of Radiant Child,

There is an opportunity to tell your story and positively affect tens of thousands of people to empower themselves and their relationships with children.  As well, your story will help empower children to be the wise, radiant, authentic beings they truly are.

 My book about authentic relationships with children and ourselves is due out in 2016 with a wonderful worldwide publisher.

I’m calling all parents, caregivers, therapists, teachers, and anyone who parents and/ or works with children to take a look at the list below and if you feel inspired–choose one (or if a couple ideas go together, that’s fine.).  SEND ME ONE OR TWO PARAGRAPHS WITH YOUR STORY BY MAY 10TH.

Thanks much, and if we use your story, we’ll send you a download link of your choice from www.childrensyoga.com shop!
