Lori, My husband and I just completed the Conscious Communication course and we just cannot thank you enough for the ways this course has affected our lives. We are seeing big changes. We had the instinct, the intention and the determination for conscious parenting but lacked the skills and tools required to actually make it happen until now. A million times, thank you.     - Danielle Senini  | Australia                                                                       

Does this sound familiar?

  • I would really like to say something ONCE instead of 3 or 4 times!

  • It seems like my child has that special knack for unleashing my inner critic.

  • No matter what I say, nor how kindly I say it - my requests go unheard or it turns into an argument.

  • I believe I could learn more about myself and how I interact with my kids.

  • I worry that I might be causing exactly what I FEAR most and I need to change something fast!

  • Sometimes, I feel like I can be too reactive, demeaning, or harsh with my child.

  • I wish I could break the negative cycle of yelling, nagging and arguing and gain cooperation without feeling frustrated, exhausted or guilty.

You are NOT ALONE!

When I learned to shift my focus from what I was seeing, interpreting, and assuming... and started to re-train my brain to identify FOUR critical elements underlying every interaction - I was able to transform the way I spoke in those important relationships - not just with my child, but with everyone in my life.

Believe me, I am no perfect model of communication. I grew up with undiagnosed Aspergers Syndrome, a bit of emotional trauma and a super-sensitive temperament.

There is no perfection here.

But I am a conscious observer of life. And I like patterns - cause and effect.

And I'm going to show you exactly HOW to:

become aware of your unconscious communication patterns

notice how those patterns of cause-and-effect play out in your relationships 


I've got a framework for creating the kind of connection and consideration with your kids that you really want by discovering how to be more mindful, aware, and responsible for your words and actions - and I want to share it with YOU!

If you've ever...

  • felt like EMPATHY just wasn't enough to change things and you didn't know what was missing.
  • experienced difficulty understanding your child or looking behind behavior.
  • wanted to express your desires and needs in ways that are more likely to be heard.
  • felt like you could be more emotionally present for your child but just didn't know how - or what to SAY.

Lori Petro you are truly amazing! What a fabulous Q&A call. I feel a hundred times better and needed to hear every word you had to say. My heart thanks you for your compassion. I'm glad to be a part of this class and appreciate your work.

Each of the six video lessons are approximately 40-60 minutes long and will guide through a series of exercises and homework activities that will show you how to fundamentally re-write the "scripts" for how you think about + speak to the people in your life. 

Then each week, we'll meet to discuss the learning tools and communication strategies you've learned.

The number one reason that most people revert back into unconscious habits of harsh or critical language is because they aren't able to maintain a network of support and team up with others who can provide an empathetic ear and some sage wisdom.

I'm not going to let that happen to you.

That is why in addition to our live weekly meetings, I am also including 60 DAYS of monthly support in our LIVE Support Circle Calls where you can work out conflicts, ask questions and, find support among a dedicated group of current and past class participants. Recorded for your listening convenience.

Wait until you see the extra bonus calls that I have included in this program.

Every class participant becomes a member of our private Facebook Group - The TEACH Family Forum. You will have 24/7 access to supportive folks from all around the world - all on the same conscious journey as you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Loved this class & I look forward to taking more of your classes.

Thanks for the gifts and your parenting knowledge. I see the difference in such a short time with my kids.

                                                                                                                                                                        Susan S.  |  Vancouver B.C.

Each week in our Virtual Online Classroom, you are going to learn to THINK, SPEAK & ACT in conscious, compassionate ways.

In Learning Module One... you are going to dig, deep, make some home MOVIES, and learn to shift your perspective so you can start to feel confident and empowered when speaking to your kids rather than frazzled, hoarse and out of patience!

Lesson One: Think

You will learn:

  • to shift your perspective so you can view behavior and conflict with a non-punitive lens
  • through self-discovery what gets in the way of YOUR natural desire to help + connect with your kids
  • how to interrupt the negative cycle of blame, shame, judgment and guilt with just ONE tool
  • to identify your biggest communication mistake and transform it into your greatest goal
  • 5 steps to sloooowing down, centering and staying emotionally present so you can respond to your kids rather than react

In Learning Module Two...  you are going to lay a new foundation for interacting with a model for compassionate communication. You're going to take that behavioral lens you've been looking through, and give it a good scrub. This will leave you with those FOUR critical pieces of information you need to keep focused.

Lesson Two: Speak

You will learn:

  • what the heck a jackal and a giraffe have to do with parenting
  • a new framework for listening and expressing with confidence + compassion
  • how to encourage your child without creating a praise-junkie
  • what WILL create in your kids a natural, authentic desire for self-reflection
  • enhance your ability to express your desires in ways that others are more likely to understand

In Learning Module Three... you are going to see how your nonverbal language adds to the relationship dynamic as we transform the ways in which we send communication signals to others and practice language for common challenges.

Lesson Three: Act

You will learn:

  • language + ideas for handling specific scenarios and common behaviors around Routines, Respect, Relationships, Regulation & Responsibilities
  • how to approach someone so that you are more likely to be responded to in the ways that you are hoping for
  • what skill you ALREADY possess that can nurture your child's brain and lay a solid foundation of emotional health
  • the first-aid you MUST apply before jumping into any conflict chaos

I will take you on a journey that will provide you with a map
to END the cycle of arguments, nagging and
punishing and replace it
with mutually respectful, cooperative communication.

A message from a past participant about this class! Listen >>

Lori! I have enjoyed the classes so much. Yesterday I was triggered and caught myself and began to investigate...found the needs and instead of beating myself up for them... my heart broke open and sobbing commenced. I have some hardened ideas beginning to be softened. Thank you!

Now you might think, "It's not me that needs to change - it's my child that needs a lesson in speaking calmly and respectfully."

I know it is tempting to want to shift the responsibility of changing language and behavior onto your children alone. How else will they ever learn to be accountable for their actions?

But none of that is really true! I'm going to let you in on a little secret: Our behavior does not rely on what we know  as much as it relies on HOW we feel in a particular moment.

  • Are we safe?
  • Are my needs in danger of not being met?
  • Are you a reliable support?

Who do you think has the greater ability to shift the emotional climate of a situation? WE DO!

And I'm going to show you how to do that without resorting to
behavioral controls like punishment, blame, criticism or lectures.

If you're worried that this class will not give you the tools that you need to "make your kids do as you say -  exactly when you say it"  - then you're RIGHT! 

I would never pretend to have tools that DO NOT EXIST.  What I am going to teach you is to think in a new way so that you secure your INFLUENCE - not your power and control.

It would be nice if we could just control our kids with a little love... and a take-away here and there, but the fact is that humans are not that easily controlled.

Now, when you sign-up for this series you will be able to give yourself some SLACK as you give him your presence and guidance - free from judgments and assumptions about his behavior.

Hi Lori! I just want to let you know that this class is helping our family so much. I want you to know that I have read countless books and blogs, and talked to everyone around me for advice, but nothing compares to the perfect fit of this class for us. I am so happy to have concrete and practical methods to apply and real language that I trust to use! You are doing a most important job!!! Thank you!

Compassionate communication will allow you to create a quality of connection that gets everyone’s needs met through compassionate giving.

This class will provide you with a blueprint for calm, focused interactions where you will be able to observe what you see without adding your interpretations and judgments.

As you aim to connect your thoughts and feelings to the universal needs and values that lie within all of us - you will be able to translate from a language of criticism, blame, and shame into a language that consciously connects you to your humanity.

Learn to express yourself honestly without verbally (or non-verbally) attacking others (or yourself), and minimize the likelihood of defensive reactions from your kids.  I'll help you receive critical and angry messages without taking them personally, giving in, or risking your self-esteem so you can relate to your children in healthy, cooperative, respectful ways.

These skills can be used with your kids, family, friends, students, supervisors, co-workers and clients, as well as with your own internal dialogues.
