Evanston Township High School will host “The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting” with Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D. on Tuesday, June 7 at 7:00pm, in the school auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
Author of the New York Times bestseller The Conscious Parent, Dr. Shefali Tsabary presents a transformative new approach to parenting, one that focuses not on how we can change our kids, but on how we can change ourselves so that we can become our children’s biggest supporters and resources. Oprah Winfrey called the book “the most profound book on parenting I’ve ever encountered.”
In her most recent publication The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting, Tsabary explains that connecting with our children, showing them that our love is unconditional and not tied to external success, praise, or validation, allows them to develop their self-worth and resilience. She presents a path to more effective, rewarding parenting, and gives parents the tools to tune into their own needs and challenges in order to better accommodate their children’s needs.
Tsabary received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Columbia University and has written three books. She is an expert in family dynamics and personal development and runs a private practice in New York City, specializing in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy. She is also a keynote speaker who has presented at TEDx, Kellogg Business School, the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, and other conferences and workshops around the world.
ETHS is located at 1600 Dodge Ave., Evanston, 60201. The auditorium is wheelchair accessible. Guests should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to 7:00pm to find parking and seats. Parking is available in the lot across from the main entrance, off of Dodge Avenue, or in the lots behind the high school. Parking is also available along Dodge Avenue according to posted City of Evanston signs.
