Many Rivers Books & Tea actively supports and promotes the Festival of Conscious Parenting, an all-volunteer community event to be held in Santa Rosa, California June 20—22, 2014. The Festival will showcase awareness tools that can support parents and caregivers in providing consistently loving, nurturing environments for children and youth. The Festival is presented in the conviction that practices from a variety of spiritual and psychological traditions offer resources invaluable to the endeavor of conscious parenting. Those resources can help adults deliberately model loving, generous, and effective behavior for

children, help adults treat children as they would wish to be treated, and help provide an appropriately elastic yet fully secure foundation for every child's healthy growth and exploration of life’s possibilities.

The Festival will include a free introductory
evening Friday, June 20 at the Glaser Center in
Santa Rosa, and then the Festival proper will be
held at the Sonoma Country Day School campus
on Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22.
Saturday, is for adults, and will include talks,
panels, break-out groups, information tables and
resource sharing on topics and practices related
to conscious parenting. Sunday is for children
and families; Sunday will include break-out
groups, rituals and fun activities that all can
participate in; plus Sunday will be free/by donation.
