Welcome to episode thirteen of the Honest Mamas Podcast! Today, we speak to Dr. Shefali Tsabary about the issue of helping parents to find themselves.

Dr. Shefali is a world-renowned clinical psychologist who received her doctorate from Columbia University, New York. She specializes in the integration of Eastern philosophy and Western psychology, making her an expert in her field. Her message has the potential to change people’s lives for generations to come.

Dr. Shefali is also a keynote speaker who presents at conferences and workshops around the world. Some of the venues at which Dr. Shefali has presented are: Wisdom 2.0, TEDx, Kellogg Business School, The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, and many more. She has had key collaborations with Goldie Hawn’s MindUp Foundation, Kids in the House and many educational and transformational centers around the world.

She is also a renowned author. Her latest book, The Awakened Family, gives us daily skills and tools to revolutionize our families and our parenting. This book holds the potential to liberate both your child and yourself from the clutches of anxiety leading you toward a transformed sense of peace and joy. Her first book, The Conscious Parent, has been endorsed by Oprah as one of the most profound books on parenting she has ever read. Her second book, Out Of Control, offers a unique and brilliant perspective on why traditional means of discipline don’t work with our children and what we should do instead.
