International Maternity and Parenting Institute shared Joseph Chilton Pearce's photo.

Deep Respect and Gratitude for Joseph Chilton Pearce, grandfather of the conscious parenting movement, who passed on today. Please join us in sending our love and thoughts to the family of Joseph Chilton Pearce today on the loss of their loved one. Recognized as the Grandfather of the Conscious Parenting Movement, "Joe" was the author of over 12 books, including the seminal works Magical Child and The Crack In The Cosmic Egg.
Please visit www.JosephChiltonPearce.org to learn more about "Joe" and visit his 30 year video archive at the Joseph Chilton Pearce Library: ttfuture.org/academy/joseph-chilton-pearce/introduction-joseph-chilton-pearce
Who was Joe? Pearce, an author of over 12 books, presents the idea of the heart - or compassionate mind - as a category of brain function equal in stature to the thalamus, prefrontal cortex and lower brain. He believes that active, imaginative play is the most important of all childhood activities because it cultivates mastery of one's environment, which he terms "creative competence." Children denied that form of play develop feelings of isolation and anxiety. He also believes that child-parent bonding is crucial, and sees modern clinical childbirth and lack of breast feeding as obstructions to that bonding. (Wikipedia)
