Adaptive Parenting with Tahnee McCrossin Part 1

Tahnee and I are back at it again discussing our experience in becoming new parents. After the huge success of our last 2 part series, we have been inundated with requests for a follow-up, and so here we are with an 8&1/2 month old bubba sharing all we've learn and felt since last time. There are many gems in this chat around physical health, however, the bulk of the conversation lies in the juicy psychology of making the mental and emotional shift to being parents. This has been by far the greatest aspect of our journey as new parents and we're just grateful to have an opportunity to reflect upon it.  

In this chat you will learn: 

  • The new world of post-partum parenting and nourishing jing
  • Breast massage and post-partum ovarian breathing
  • Placenta encapsulations practices and varying methods
  • The long term significance of exposing new babies to natural elements
  • The wild brain of the new Mother verse the executive brain
  • Acceptance and reflecting on your new role as a parent
  • Challenging the cultural dynamic of the fathers and mothers roles in parenting
  • Nurturing and cultivating Yin around your babies infancy
  • Post-partum work/life balance
  • Sewing the seeds early to mould a long term relationship with your children as babies
  • Crying as a sign of expression and communication rather than danger
  • Finding fusion in rhythm between you and baby 

Tahnee McCrossin is a student of the body, weaving the ancient healing traditions of Yoga and Taoism with somatic exploration and modern scientific understanding into an integrated system that supports longevity and self-healing of the body-mind-spirit. Through her work as a yoga and meditation teacher, chi ne tsang practitioner and health researcher, she is striving to reunite the modern body-mind with the spiritual and psychological wisdom of the ancients. She is grateful to be a current student of Mantak Chia, Paul Grilley and Michael Tierra.
