Engaged Parenting in the Liberated Life Project.

The Liberated Life Project included in their “Freedom Friday: Resource Round-Up” a post I did for The Elephant Journal.  A bit more on the project, organized by blogger, engaged Buddhist lion and all-around nice person, Maia of The Jizo Chronicles. Below is some more info on the project.

If you yearn to be free from the fears that keep you from living life to the fullest, if you want to not just survive but thrive, the Liberated Life Project is for you.

Maybe this means –

  • breaking free from a job that’s not fulfilling for you and learning how to create work that you love
  • changing or ending a relationship that’s not working
  • liberating yourself from credit card debt or dealing with other financial challenges
  • discovering how some kind of spiritual practice can nourish and sustain you

The Liberated Life Project is dedicated to liberation in all its forms. This is a place to find inspiration and practical tools to support four dimensions of your life:

  • Spirituality
  • Creativity
  • Right livelihood and financial liberation
  • Relationships

The Liberated Life Project isn’t only about personal growth. It’s also about making the world a better place – because I believe that our personal liberation is directly linked with the well-being of others. As we free ourselves, we are in a better position to help others become free from their suffering. It’s all connected.

And they linked under “Relationships” my post on parenting from a Buddhist-y perspective that I wrote for Elephant last month.

A Guide to Engaged Parenting
You don’t have to be a Buddhist to appreciate this article, “A Guide to Buddhist Parenting.” Written by John Pappas, a father who readily acknowledges his own struggles in this area. John includes a list of the “Ten Precepts of Engaged Parenting,” which includes things like “Don’t make promises you can’t keep” and “Provide respect.” A good read for parents and all human beings!

Thanks Maia! Here is a random picture.
