Hi, we're Adina and Steve Gardner
Adina is completing a PhD in nursing and neurobiology. She's crazy about brainwaves and learning to pick up spoons with ESP (just kidding--well actually, yes, ESP would be cool). Steve is a software engineer and has a Master's degree in music. They briefly considered shooting a music video together since Adina sings and Steve plays the saxophone.
Projects they're working on include:
* Family Travel documentary for families who have the courage and desire to practice international travel (Apply here, if you're interested).
* The Parents with Toxic Stress newsletter. For parents, especially those living in colonized cultures, who wish to build tools to parent with Love and Nurture.
* Family Connection Center, an innovative community of low cost or free homes, surrounded by edible gardens for families that need to reconnect and heal from trauma while exploring Nature together. The Connection Center will be a homestyle clinic in this community. Families will practice therapies based in neurobiological models found in Nature. More on that to come.
A word from Steve and Adina:
Our core values are the same for each of these projects:
Believe the best.
Facilitate family bonding.
Build positive, lasting connections and communities.
We believe connection is the nectar of human life. We were BORN to connect. Our brains evolved for human intimacy. A warm, connected society is a healthier one.
One more thing: We believe in ourselves and we believe in you. We want you to know and believe that your family is a crazy awesome addition to the earth.
Please look your precious babies in the eyes.
See how funny, beautiful and lovable they are. The more you believe THAT story...the more you will build calm, joyful, confident brainwaves in yourself and in your fantastical kiddo.
Change the world, one person at a time.
