Port Washington, NY, USA (January 22, 2015) — Long Island resident, Maria Gavriel, author of Love Centered Parenting will be a special guest at a book signing and discussion hosted by The Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington, NY on March 12, 2015 from 6:30-8pm. (located at 299 Main Street)

“The greatest expert on parenting is the parent, and the best support group for raising a child is community.”

That is the key message given by author Maria Gavriel in Love Centered Parenting: Contributing to Your Child’s Wellness by Living From The Heart and Cultivating Your Inner Wisdom (ISBN 978-1-45252-336-1, Balboa Publishing, 2014, $14.99, 190 pages,

Part memoir and part parenting guide, Love Centered Parenting challenges parents to learn how to turn up the volume of their inner voice and rely on intuition and inner knowledge when deciding what is best for their child.

This top seller teaches parents how to wholly parent their children on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. It empowers parents to listen to their intuition and reach out to a supportive community when making tough decisions.

Gavriel details her own parenting journey and how she embraced a holistic approach to raising her children. The author opens her book with a candid account of fertility challenges, pregnancy and birth while addressing common concerns such as diet and natural healing. Gavriel encourages all parents to listen to their intuition, whether or not they choose a holistic approach.

In Love Centered Parenting Gavriel relies heavily on her professional research skills as a paralegal for more than a decade to address such important issues as:

• The commercialization of children
• The harm done by media on child development
• The addictive effects of sugar on the child’s brain
• The risks of vaccinating children
• How to make your life free of toxins

“The true and best answers to the challenges of raising a child cannot be found on the internet or from the advice of doctors, counselors, child development experts but are readily available for parents who learn to listen to their inner knowledge and rely on their intuition,” stresses Gavriel. “Ultimately there is no single correct way to parent but a conscious, intuitive way unique to each parent and family. There is no one size fits all so we simply must align with what is right for us.”

Parents often feel lost and ambivalent when it comes to raising their children – whether they are a first time parent, or raising their first teenager, adds Gavriel, but parents who understand that they are innately capable of guiding their children will eventually trust themselves to parent from a place of wisdom.

The findings in Love Centered Parenting are based on 10 years of the author’s meticulous research via books, articles, medical research, internet resources, personal experience, community experience, and conferences, seminars and summits attended.

Kim John Payne, M.Ed. and author of two parenting books, says of Gavriel: “Maria’s path of discovery has achieved something very rare and precious. That she has been willing to share her wisdom with us is a priceless gift.”

More accolades for Love Centered Parenting come from Grady Harp, a Top 100 Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer who says, “Maria Gavriel could very well become the now generation’s Dr Spock – and that is meant in the most laudatory way. This book is not only about parenting: this book is about life and the way we all should be living it.”

The book signing and discussion with Maria Gavriel is scheduled for March 12, 2015 from 6:30-8pm.
