SMHAS is proud to announce a new comprehensive curriculum of Multidimensional Parenting Classes for every parent. Do you want to parent in a way that will support your child in meeting their full potential? Do you want to parent in a way that is healing, positive, and gives your child the best chance for happiness in life? Do you want to heal yourself so that you can parent in a manner that that does not perpetuate the dysfunction of previous generations? Would you like the support and resources of having other parents and professionals to guide you in the parenting journey? Is your child difficult to parent? Have you tried everything? Is your child different than other children? Is your child diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, bipolar or autism? Is your child gifted or overly responsible? Would you like a better understanding of how to deal with most parenting challenges?

Then these classes are for you! They are unique, progressive classes that address the whole spectrum of parenting including child developmental stages, behavioral issues, and ancestral patterns.

MaryanncastellanosMaryann Castellanos - Why Isn't My Kid Learning?

 Maryann Castellanos began her career as an undergraduate psychology student in NJ.   In 1979 began the Transpersonal Center where she served as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist.   She studied yoga, meditation, shiatsu and oriental medicine and found that she was gifted in attitudinal healing by releasing the associated blocks in the meridians.

Maryann went on to have a family and studied Spiritual Science at Peace Theological Seminary (www.pts.org).   She became an ordained minister in 1988 adding the multidimensional aspects of spiritual life force to her work.   Currently she is a doctoral candidate. Here, Maryann learned that the client has the issue to learn a spiritual lesson like having your sweater caught on a nail.  By respecting the spiritual needs of the client she teaches them to be strong enough to unhook themselves and lift their karma.  She is always teaching and advancing the client through building their personal awareness, thus clearing the issue much more deeply straight down to the DNA.
