podcast : Taraneh Erfan King - spirit & svadhyaya
On this episode I’m rejoined by good friend, Taraneh Erfan King. We catch up on what she’s been up to and her work of conscious parenting. Taraneh shares her definitions of Self, soul and spirit and how we are much more than our physical beings. She also speaks to the power of meditation, spiritual health and spiritual bypassing. This episode is not just for parents, and is a fantastic listen for anyone wanting to broaden their awareness in how they move about in the world.
Taraneh Erfan King, is a writer, educator and registered counsellor whose purpose is to hold space for conscious awakening. We first met through (surprise, surprise) lululemon and completed our 200 hr yoga teacher training together. Taraneh has been a grounding force for me and when I’m stuck or bumping up against something, I know I can count on Taraneh to ask the poignant questions so I can continue to move forward.
Taraneh’s work is informed by her deep passion to create opportunities for inward development, and purpose-led transformation. She is currently focused on supporting parents in building conscious relationships with their children, allowing for the connection in their family unit to be a path to awakening, creating powerful ripples of healing and joy in all areas of their lives. Taraneh is also mom to two magic humans, and is writing a book on the topic of spiritual health and awakening.
