Enjoy this video recording of Metro Parent's hosting of NPR onBeing host Krista Tippett and guest Sylvia Boorstein.

We've got a great gift for you for Mother's Day. Our lovely evening with NPR's OnBeing host Krista Tippett and self-help author Sylvia Boorstein, called "What We Nuture," is now available in video below. It's the perfect thing for moms - a conversation on loving and teaching children in a complex world and a centering meditation for harried moms. We hope you enjoy it as much as our guests in February did.
