Parenting with

COMPLEXITY & COMPASSION

Meet 

MARK Silver

 LISTEN NOW

Listen to Mark Silver as he describes with humility and honesty, the ways in which he brings compassion and a perspective which weaves deeper complexity into his parenting. 

I have to confess, that this interview did not go in any way that I (your host - David) expected. Instead, I was drawn into expanding and thickening my understanding of experiences (of bringing consciousness to injustice for example) and issues (like adoption). Some of my preconceptions got dissected and I was humbled at times by our conversation. It left me with a richer way of seeing what I had flattened in my mind prior and an ache in my heart to be more compassionate myself with my family and greater community.
