#88 — On Yogi Parenting ** October 28, 2015
Host // Kelly Brogan, MD

happy healthy child dvdWouldn’t life be easier if you just knew how to raise your kids? No endless hours on the internet, frantic calls to friends and family, expensive and tedious appointments with doctors and experts, stacks of books to collect?

There certainly aren’t many parents who can claim to navigate the challenges of family life and child rearing with the trifecta of wisdom, grace, and evidence-based research, but Sarah Kamrath is one of them.

Tune in to hear about her path to parenting from a space of inner knowledge, informed by her experience as a parent, researcher, writer, filmmaker, doula, and yogi:

  • What is a parent’s most important parenting tool?
  • What are top priorities for a healthy pregnancy and birth?
  • What information is needed to avoid unnecessary interventions?
  • Why kundalini yoga, what is it, and how did it change your marriage and parenting?
  • How is your parenting different from what you read and see in the mainstream?
  • Tell us about your goals and approaches for educating your children? How do they like it and how does it impact their social lives?
  • What hopes do you have for humanity when it comes to parenting and family life?

Happy Healthy Child

She spent several years traveling and interviewing the top OB/GYNS, midwives, pediatricians, scientists, psychologists, anthropologists, childbirth educators, sleep experts and lactation specialists. She read their books, took their workshops, filmed the interviews, and compiled all of their gems of wisdom and expertise into a comprehensive childbirth video series called Happy Healthy Child. Her goal is for parents “to understand ALL of your options so that you enter this incredible time in your life feeling empowered and excited, not fearful and unprepared.” Read more about Sarah and her work here.

    As my husband and I are starting to talk about building a bigger family after 11 years of marriage, I’m really looking forward to listening to this episode. Thank you for sharing!

  • Ken Berry

    At one time I was able to see a video of a man named James I believe. He spoke on holding the unlikeable personality traits and accepting them in our children. It was a powerful and freeing concept. But I haven’t been able to view it again. It has disappeared from the site. Would you please send me the presentation? Thank you

    Whose quote was that, Sarah? It was not attributed to anyone.
    “The opposite of courage is not cowardice, but conformity.”

    • Louise Kuo Habakus

      Hi, Rebecca. It seems that variations of this quote have been claimed by multiple people including Wayne Dyer and Jim Hightower. One version I found is:

      “The opposite of courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.”

      I would argue, with compassion, that faithless conformity is a form of cowardice. This is why we need to find our community.
