Guiltless & Worriless Parenting – Is it really possible?with Visiting Trainer Arnina Kashtan

October 24 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am


Guilt and worry – how can we live without them, especially if we are parents?

It seems like these two powerful emotions come built-in for caring parents or caring people in general, and not surprisingly so.  These two emotions are driven by the primal need for survival, but almost inevitably, in spite of their good intentions, they turn our life and our relationships into havoc. 

So, what’s possible Instead?

Once we understand the true intentions and aspirations bubbling below the guilt and worry, we can choose an alternative strategy to achieve what’s really important to us – with much less suffering for all.

Intrigued or simply curious?

Then we invite you to join us for this free interactive workshop, Sunday, October 24th; 8:00 am – 10:00 am PT  (Time Zone Converter), where Arnina will share three steps to relating to yourself and your children with more compassion, clarity, and connection.

Some of the following Compass materials might be referenced in the workshop so we invite you to have them handy for ease of reference:

Arnina Kashtan

CNVC Certified Trainer from Ramat-Gan, Tel Aviv, Israel

Arnina Kashtan, certified NVC trainer (1992), is the creator of “The Compass”, the process for personal, familial & collective liberation, and author of “Falling in Love with Myself Again” (2016). Founder of Meitarim, the Center for The Compass & NVC Studies in Israel (2000), she delivers workshops and trainings, online & offline, to the general public, as well as trainings for coaches, mediators & trainers (in Hebrew, English & Spanish).

Arnina’s passion and special gifts are in enhancing breakthroughs in awareness, thus bringing forth deep transformations on all levels. Her unique ,approach combines a profound, laser-like exploration into our innermost core, supported by a rare sense of humor and embedded in deep, embracing empathy. The emerging almost magical space she creates has enabled her students all over the world to open up into new understandings and embark on a fresh, compassionate, and expanding free path.


“My sister Arnina puts together so much — systemic perspective, compassion for trauma, deep understanding about how humans function, and more — into a comprehensive, deep, and fully accessible framework that supports dramatic shifts in the experience of being alive. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a passion for freedom.” ~ Miki Kashtan

“The compass course is vital to anyone serious about transcending trauma and/or becoming certified as a trainer of nonviolent communication (NVC).” ~ Monica Espinoza

“Arnina’s depth, skills, sense of humor, and ability to articulate so many nuances so clearly are a gift for anyone seeking greater inner peace, freedom, and a kinder relationship with oneself and others.” ~ Kristi Dee Doden

“Integrating the principles and practices of The Compass into my daily life has increased my capacity to be the change I want to see in the world. My heart is full of gratitude for the incredibly valuable and deeply meaningful gifts that Arnina shares with such grace and compassion and I’m grateful also for the community that participates in and enhances the learning. What a nourishing experience of shared humanity The Compass has and continues to be.” ~ Heather Austin

“Having more clarity on the personal, familial, and social contracts I unconsciously accepted, helps me feel more welcoming and curious towards myself and others. More often than before, I feel less impatient with myself, less resentful towards others, and more empowered to act from choice and mutual care.” ~ Fernanda Cecin

“Arnina builds a space where I feel at home to share personal, parental, and relational matters. The way she unravels the themes the participants bring, and the compassionate light she sheds on them, boost my inner power and my capacity to be compassionate towards myself and others.  She promotes an awareness that helps me operate beyond the right/wrong paradigm and to be more and more in choice of my actions.” ~ Grace Deckers

“I feel more free, more alive, more motivated and empowered.” ~ Claudia Sánchez

“I appreciate the way individual experiences are used to create a structure for teaching universally.  I am newly aware of choices there are in how I speak to myself, and even though it is a momentous challenge to change, I am hopeful in going forward.” ~ Marge Margulies

“I so appreciate what I got to know about myself and my core beliefs. I needed to learn to accept, to understand, to be, and to love. Paradoxically, it is so freeing! My core beliefs are no longer my enemies, more like old (and sometimes dear) friends.” ~ Paula Rossi

“I offer you a deep, radical process of truth, compassion, and courage, to uncover the essence of your being while transforming your personal, familial, and professional relationships in unprecedented ways.”  ~ Arnina Kashtan
