wisdom through dialogue
Parent Sphere is a community of parent leaders. We are fathers and mothers who are inspired to take charge of empowering the next generation of purposeful, compassionate and resilient citizens of the world.
In our professional, vocational or academic lives, many of us are highly effective team leaders and managers. Yet we can find it a real challenge to translate that same effectiveness to inspire successful outcomes at home, particularly with children.
It is time for us to invest mind space, contemplate strategies and co-create relevant, present-day approaches towards higher functioning self, in relationships and families.
Leadership for parents
Today, successful leaders reap the greatest potential from human capital through authenticity, collaboration, empowerment and a shared purpose – for everything else, there is artificial intelligence. Let us deliberate how we can be effective in bringing that within our homes.
By combining clear intellect, heartfelt awareness and commitment to transformation, parents can define relevant boundaries, create the right energy to nurture an environment of physical, mental and emotional resilience for the next generation of trailblazers. Excellence in academic grades, competition prize-winning and individualistic accolades are easily defined but far from the only dimensions of success in this fast-changing, ever-evolving global ecosystem.
“It takes a village to raise a child” – African Proverb

What people say about Parent Sphere
Active and compassionate listening…what an insightful session. In this busy world we all have an issue with listening….not just as parents but with people we come in contact with in our everyday life. Zerlina led the session in a beautiful, humble and relaxed fashion.
Mindfully, C. Buchan
Thank you Zerlina for providing a space to connect and learn with other parents, to feel that we are not alone in this journey. Having this opportunity to slow down, to be in touch with ourselves and share experiences with more parents has made me feel more encouraged in my parent journey and grateful to be here. I’m looking forward for our next Parent Sphere gathering!
In this busy, crazy world we live in, Parent Sphere session allowed me as a parent and wife, to step back and examine what’s truly important and meaningful in my life. Zerlina was excellent in gently leading us into the conscious zone and yet she managed to make the session interactive and fun. Each participant felt comfortable in sharing their thoughts and experiences. I walked away with an awareness that I have not felt in a long time.
Thank you Zerlina for inviting me to The Parent Sphere!
Thank you for providing me the opportunity to meet up with other like-minded people in my parenting journey. Parent Sphere felt like such a protected and safe environment to “just be”. The content was excellent, but your personal examples and your encouragement for us to speak our hearts out was key. It was such a wonderful experience, and I do recommend it to anyone, new or seasoned parents.
I’m looking forward to attending monthly The Parent Sphere gatherings in 2017.
I attended Parent Sphere on Gratitude and came away thinking of how much I had learned in the session and how lovely it was to connect with other parents who face some of the same issues and challenges that I do. I enjoyed the discussion and have implemented some of the strategies Zerlina shared, with my son at home. We still do these every day and I really found them to be useful.
Zerlina was a great facilitator allowing the discussion to organically develop but also to guide the participants when needed.
I am definitely going back for every one that I can attend.
