On the very first day of grade school, I knew I would become a teacher. At recess, as I was climbing across the monkey bars, I got stuck in the middle. It was too far down to jump and I feared I would fall if I continued. As the children taunted me, I began to cry. Then, like a cool breeze, Mrs. Barton hoisted me down, assuring me I was fine. She magically planted a seed of compassion which grew deep into my heart and my life’s work became teaching children and those who love them!
Since then… I have birthed three children who have birthed three of their own children. Wow. Being a grandmother is one of the most intense joys of my life!
Twenty years ago, I founded my own school, Magical Child Playschool. One of my passions is to help young children cultivate healthy core beliefs; those inner ideas we all hold about ourselves. Though I adore teaching children, I equally love working with their mothers. Parenting is the hardest job any human will have. With no training or credentials in parenting, we all come face-to-face with our own inner child as we raise our own children. I see women creating so much stress because they drive themselves to be perfect or they are overwhelmed and under supported. As I help them navigate through the challenges of raising children in our complex world, they often build muscles that weren’t there before. Every day is cumulative… this work truly changes families.
About Circles and Affirmation Cards:
After reading The Millionth Circle by Jean Shinoda Bolen, I began running women’s circles. Mothers Medicine Circles became places for moms to anchor in the sacredness of being a mom. The mothers loved the circles, but as we know, moms often put themselves last and I found it challenging to keep the momentum of the circles going. So I gestated a new baby-a deck of affirmation cards just for mothers. My intention was to create thoughts that would become touchstones…ideas for creating presence with their children as well as their own inner child. Bless You Mom-Conscious Thoughts for the Mothering Journey won the Mother’s Choice Award for the most inspirational and motivational product of 2008. I had a blast with my friend, Elizabeth, creating this deck. www.blessyoumom.com I wondered… if mothers won’t come to circle, would their daughters? For five years now, I have been facilitating Girls Core Empowerment Circles, a place I teach young girls the value and importance of loving themselves in the sacred environment of a circle. High self-esteemed girls grow into high self-esteemed women. The feminine is rising! Currently, I have twenty-five girls that are participating in these circles.
More About Me:
Over the course of my life, I received a Masters from the Institute for Shamanic Synthesis, became an ordained minister, a Reiki Master, a hypnotherapist, a food healing instructor and studied all kinds of energy medicine, finally becoming certified in Eden Energy Medicine. I often teach classes to early childhood professionals for their continuing educational needs…mostly on guidance and discipline. Soon, I will teach a class for the New Mexico Association for the Education of Young Children to early childhood professionals. My workshop is titled Crossing the Midline with Poi Balls. Poi balls are an innovative way to help children and adults build strong brains and bodies in a very fun way.
I feel blessed to be living in the second half of my life. I still adore my partner of 35 years and our children are grown. Age has relaxed, mellowed and ripened me. Acceptance and gratitude have become daily medicines and tending to my inner self is the fuel that creates my vitality and well-being. I feel deeply committed to guiding children and their mothers so they feel lowered stress, more connection, easier communication and happier moments alone in their lives. I would be honored to have a session with you. “Mamaste!”
“Not only has Harmony provided an extremely nurturing, guided, and solid childcare environment for two of our three children but she has also been an extremely influential guide for our parenting. Her guidance and insight has shaped our parenting beyond words. Harmony has been and still is a very influential person in our lives. We would not be the family unit we are today without the guidance of Harmony!” Mama Jill
“My daughters have thrived in Harmony’s care. Harmony is, without a question, the best choice our family has made in the upbringing of our daughters. Through her loving guidance and playful wisdom, they have developed truly meaningful skills to weave into their experiences, like self-love, deep listening, and how to be a good friend. In this modern world with so many stresses, Harmony is able to reconnect us to what really matters. She is such a sweet role model for my growing girls.” Mama Jamie
“If I were granted one wish, it would be that all parents and children could experience the wondrous and life changing teachings of Harmony West. It is with 100 per cent certainty that I state she has single handedly set my two girls on a course in life they would not be on without her influence. They now face this ever-changing hectic world with a set of skills to problem solve, calm and express themselves. She has instilled them with such a strong sense of self love and empowerment that they now step out into the world unstoppable. The compassion and kindness she showered on my girls took root in them and they now pass that on in their daily lives. My gratitude for Harmony’s impact on our family is enormous. I could never thank her enough.” Mama Jenn
“Harmony is such a gem to the Santa Fe family community. In my seven years here, her name has come up time and time again as a wonderful guide for parents and educator for children through her various practices and services. In my own experience with her, through her workshops in self-healing, leading a mother’s circle and personal parenting counseling, she has helped me nurture myself, feel more aligned with my authentic self and act in a more heart-centered way as a mother.” Mama Adrienne
