Your class has impacted my parenting tremendously. I have learned mainly that my children are their own independent selves and were not put on this world to serve me, or be me, but rather they have their own tikun and I am there to help and guide them, rather then change them. -Anonymous






This is a 26-week course designed for parents and educators, based on the The Law of the Five Elements, a foundation of Chinese Medicine & Core concept in Jewish Kabbalah/Chassidus. Participants will learn to identify their child’s Core element, and thereby understand their child’s gifts, challenges, and “love languages.” We will study the elements in “real-time,” as we move through the corresponding months of the Jewish calendar, deepening the experiential learning of this content. Participants will learn new ways of speaking with, holding & nurturing their children, to improve physical and emotional health, and amplify love and peace in the home.

I also have learned to be patient with their different character traits and to not take things personally from them. Overall I have gained so much compassion and emunah and trusting that Hashem has my back with this thing we call parenting!” -Anonymous

“I really connected to this last class on the elements and understanding our children. It helped me deepen my compassion for different struggles by understanding different children’s natures and how they looks out of balance and how to support them. I love also how connected they all are. The class was very comprehensive in approach, looking past just the behavior and diving in even deeper. The sharing in an open environment and “check-ins” was great in this class as well!!” - Anonymous

“This class and you have opened my mind to see and hear and feel other people’s perspectives in a way I’ve never done before. I have always prided myself on being “open-minded” and “accepting” but this class has helped me develop that and deepen the understanding I have about myself, my family, and humanity.

I feel like I am making strides to become a much more understanding mother which leads to being more patient, compassionate and empathetic- which are main qualities our children need from us as mothers. I also feel like I have so much more to learn and there are so many more layers to delve into to further develop myself as a person, wife and mother. So thank you!!!” - Anonymous

I really came to help me be a better parent and have better relationships with my kids but I gained a deeper understanding of all relationships and connections (especially with my kids but also with my husband, kids teachers, school administrators, friends, parents etc) I also felt like it was so normalizing and comforting to hear about other moms hardships-like I felt like I wasn’t alone and the things I thought were so unique to my house were really normal and ok -where I used to shut down at certain scenarios-I am now able to confront I think learning and growth is continuous but I feel like my relationship with my children and reactions to them is in a much better place than it was a few months ago Miriam gave individualized attention and for me specifically helped me approach a teacher in a way that really changed the narrative of the school year and I have tremendous hakaras hatov for that!” - Anonymous.
