EP 08: A peaceful world starts with a peaceful home. With Lorena Seidel

Excited to have Lorena Seidel with us! She has been wonderful to get to know over the years and has lately been a great supporter of The Art of Parenting podcast. She has a beautiful calming energy as she shares her wisdom with us.

What we Talked About

  • Forgiving and accepting ourselves and our children.
  • Parenting is an opportunity for us to grow and it takes a lot of inner work. She shares how she did that work herself through meditation and EFT.
  • How Bunny taught her the importance of empathy. 
  • Emotional Hygiene and how to deal with emotional injuries.

  1. I absolutely loved this episode of the show. Jeanne-Marie, I feel like you ask all the right questions! I really enjoyed hearing all that Lorena had to share, and I’ve already checked out her website, signed up for her free mini-training, and even bought her book. Started reading it last night and implementing some of her ideas today! I also looked up EFT and tried it out when I got angry a couple of times. It definitely seemed to help. Thanks for producing such an informative and helpful podcast. It is one of my new favorites. 🙂

    • Marisa! Thank you! I can’t even tell you how much this means to me. Please leave a review on the iTunes platform as well, this will help get the podcast in more ears. Full of gratitude your way!
