What is a Virtual Retreat?

Parenting As A Hero's Journey

A Parenting As A Hero’s Journey Virtual Retreat allows you to EXPERIENCE a deep dive into an adventure created specifically for parents like you… parents who are hearing a call to a different way of being as a way to create the world you want your children to inherit. Your guide, Teresa Graham Brett, will guide you through:

November 30, 2015 at 7 p.m. EST (World Clock Converter Here).  A Welcoming Initiation by Rebecca Thompson: Each virtual retreat begins with a live call with your guide who will share an overview of the journey ahead.

Breadcrumbs On The Trail: Each virtual retreat includes practical guidance, exercises and love notes emailed three times a week.

December 6, 2015.  The Deep Dive: A webinar that covers the deepest, most profound insights into the guides’ teachings.  This webinar is for you to keep and enjoy.  You receive access to the webinar on this day, but you can view it at your leisure.

Personal Connection: You will have a personal connection with your guides in our forums.  You can ask questions about your practical exercises and parenting challenges, as well as find more inspiration for your real life parenting adventure.

December 16, 2015 at 7 p.m. EST (World Clock Converter Here).  Closing Circle: A live call at the end of your three-week journey to share your experience, bid farewell to your fellow travelers and guides and discover ways to keep the momentum going if you like.

Your Virtual Retreat Facilitator: Rebecca Thompson is a holistic counselor and the founder of the Consciously Parenting Project.  Rebecca will be your facilitator for all of the virtual retreats through 2015.



teresaTeresa is the founder of the Kindred Parent Liberation Alliance and Project.  She is the author of Parenting for Social Change, a Kindred editor and a board of director’s member of Kindred’s parent nonprofit, Families for Conscious Living.  Teresa co-sponsored  the Tucson, Arizona workshop  on the Parenting for a Peaceful World Tour in 2013 and presented at the Re-Thinking Everything Conference in 2014.  You can read her reflections about the Rethinking Everything Conference here.

Teresa lives her passion for creating social change by combining her work in social justice education with parenting. As a professional, she has spent over 20 years working in and with universities and colleges as an educator, leader, administrator and consultant committed to advancing social change and social justice. After graduating from law school, she decided not to practice law. Instead, she opted to serve the cause of social change and justice through her work at three large public universities across the country. She worked with innovative programs designed to create transformative learning for students, staff and faculty. As a consultant she continues to bring her expertise and passion to clients interested in transformative learning, social change and social justice.

Her own life was transformed after the births of Martel and Greyson, who have challenged her to live the values of liberation, freedom and respect as a parent. She discovered the ways in which she did not live in congruence with her professional values in her role as a parent. Using her experience in facilitating social justice learning, she began her own learning journey toward creating respectful relationships with the children who share her life. This personal journey and her challenge to others to create broader social change by transforming how we view and treat children is chronicled in her writing, both on her website and in her book, Parenting for Social Change.
