More about Sylvia Poareo, MSW
Co-Editor of Family & Parenting
Sylvia Poareo's journey to support families began while growing up in foster care. Although hers was a challenging path, her connection to the Divine sustained her and ultimately led her to the spiritual healing processes that transformed her life and her parenting.
Sylvia earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Azusa Pacific University and a Master’s Degree in Social Welfare at UCLA. For many years, she shared the power of healing through social work in hospital, adoption and foster care settings, as well as, using play/art therapy in elementary schools. To honor her commitment to spiritual healing, she became certified as a Spiritual Counselor through the Association for the Integration of the Whole Person, and received extensive training with mentor Margaret Paul, co-creator of InnerBonding.
For over 15 years she has integrated a blend of spiritual healing practices including meditation/prayer, natural living education, indigenous healing arts/shamanism, energy healing, EFT, hypnosis and conscious movement. With openness and non-judgment, she assists others to heal and rediscover the beauty of their soul. To learn more, download her free Ebook, A Guide to Connecting Within at www.connectingwithin.com.
When she became a mother it was clear that her spiritual healing practice would continue to guide her parenting and help her to heal on deeper levels. She now shares this insight through Conscious Mothering Circles and Conscious Parenting support. Utilizing her personal and professional experience, Sylvia helps parents to compassionately heal the spiritual and emotional challenges that interfere with parenting, and reconnect to their intuition and spiritual connection. She enjoys offering compassionate support through individual sessions (in person and worldwide through Skype or phone), Connected Family Gatherings, Conscious Mothering Circles, as well as, inspiring workshops, blessing ceremonies and retreats. She feels passionately that parenthood is an incomparable time of growth, learning and healing, to be engaged in consciously so we can be truly loving to ourselves, to our precious ones, and the world. (For more on her compassionate approach with parents, see: http://www.connectingwithin.com/conscious-mothering.)
When not sharing the work she loves, she enjoys growing and playing with her family, writing, dancing, yoga, suburban farming, traveling and being present in each glorious moment!
