Karina Mackenzie: Imperfect Parenting with Self-Compassion Masterclass

If you’re watching this interview from a phone, remember to rotate it for full-screen view.

Speaker Bio

Karina Mackenzie (Senior Director, Programming, Wanderlust) is proud to have curated mindful
programming for Wanderlust events and media since 2010, and is even prouder to be the mum
to two kids, who are my unequivocal bosses every day!

As an imperfect parent but committed to the path of mindful parenting, Karina works with some
of the most renowned teachers and speakers in the realm of mindfulness, consciousness, and
making a difference in the world. There is arguably no more tangible way to make a difference in
the world than the way you raise the next generation, thus Karina started a side channel called
Chop Wood Carry Baby, as a space to explore how the seeker changes the ways in which they
pursue spirituality after baby arrives. The name is derived from the old adage that someone
went to the Buddha and asked what’s after enlightenment. The purported answer was “Before
enlightenment, chop wood carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood carry water.” The same
could be said of parenting, the wood must be chopped and the baby needs attention, so your
meditation can wait. Or can it?

In her exploits in imperfect parenting on Chop Wood Cary Baby, Karina explores the tenets of
simplicity, sustainability, and spirituality.

Karina also volunteers in her local community as a Moms Demand Action local group lead, and
prior to that served on the board of Yoga Foster for four years, supporting their mission to make
wellness elementary in public schools across America.

Sheila McCraith: How to Yell Less & Love More with Self-Compassion Masterclass

If you’re watching this interview from a phone, remember to rotate it for full-screen view.

Speaker Bio

The Orange Rhino, a.k.a. Sheila McCraith

Sheila McCraith, also known as The Orange Rhino, is the author of “Yell Less, Love More: How The Orange Rhino Mom Stopped Yelling at Her Kids and How You Can Too.” Written based on her experience completing The Orange Rhino Challenge®, her personal, public commitment to go a year without yelling at her four sons, then ages five and under, “Yell Less, Love More” exists to remove the shame around yelling so parents feel less alone, more understood, and more supported. Sheila is also creator of The Orange Rhino® Facebook community which offers a safe, non-judgemental place to share and discuss all hard topics of parenting and life beyond yelling.  

Her journey to yell less began when a construction worker popped in unannounced and caught her yelling at her sons. The embarrassing moment led to an inspiring insight: She went almost a year not yelling in front of workers because she feared their opinions of her as a mom. But the opinions that mattered most? Her childrens. They deserved better and she could do better. With that, The Orange Rhino Challenge® was born. 

During that year’s journey, she succeeded in learning how to not yell, but the biggest lesson was that while she is The Orange Rhino – a person who doesn’t charge with words when triggered – she is still human and yelling happens sometimes, because life happens, and it doesn’t make her a bad mom. Sheila’s work has been featured in Parents Magazine, People, Huffington Post, MSN, and she has been featured on Hallmark Home & Family, numerous radio stations, podcasts and her blog, www.TheOrangeRhino.com, won Parents magazines 2013 Blog Most Likely to Help You Achieve a Goal.

When Sheila isn’t driving her sons here and there, she can be found snuggling with her dog Hope, walking or enjoying nature, baking elaborate birthday cakes, or doing something else from her personal “Recipe for Calm.”
