Hi Hunter. Welcome back to the pod. Hi, Casey. So nice to be hanging out with you again. I know. I'm so exciting.

I'm so excited to talk to you. It were exciting as well. I'm so exciting. . So we recently were together on the other side of the planet and thought it would be a fun idea to come on and talk about our experience. Around the UN Parenting conference that was held in Abu Dhabi last November. You were part of the team putting together the list of speakers to invite to apply.

Will you share a little bit about how you got involved in that conference? I love this story. It's funny because I was curious myself about this question too. I, they reached out to me. The conference got postponed because of Covid at one point, so they reached out to me over a year ago and I got a random message through LinkedIn and I don't even, I don't even I'm just like, occasionally I'm like, okay, I'll look at some of these message.

And there was this group reaching out from the Abu Dhabi government about a conference and I was like, this is probably spam, or some kind of weird thing, but maybe it isn't. So I'll just see whatever. And they wanted to have a meeting okay, I'll meet with them. Who knows what this is. This is probably not a real thing, but it turns out it was a real thing,

And they had been looking for a Parenting expert. And I guess they found me through, Mindful Parenting and raising good humans. To help them select speakers from different parts of the world outside of the Middle East region. For this conference that the government of Abu Dhabi wanted to put on in the city of Abu Dhabi, the Emirati of Abu Dhabi.

And I had to kinda look it up and, say, okay, where is this? What's going on? Let me understand this part of the world. And it was a part-time job where I would be a speaker and then I would, and get to invite other speakers. And I thought that would be fun. And also it's an a way to bring a direction and a certain amount of influence to an area about a way of different ways of thinking about Parenting.

My mission is like to shift the way people think about Parenting. So this, this is right in alignment with my mission. So I got started with this incredible team and I felt great cuz I was like, I'm inviting people to a party. This is so fun. Yeah. Yeah. . Oh my god. That's how it felt too.

So exciting. Yeah, it was cool. I thought, okay, this is fun. I made my wishlist of people I wanted. To bring to Abu Dhabi and I had to think about different topics and subjects and things like that, and people who would whose work would compliment each other as well. And and. It was very exciting.

I, I suggested, I suggested many speakers. Some were accepted and some weren't. And I but for me it was it was interesting. I didn't think until later oh, as the conference started to actually roll around in actuality, then I started to then realize, oh, All these people who know me, who are coming to this thing because of me, cuz they don't know anything about this place, my mutation, my is really on the line here.

I hope it goes well , because I had never even crossed my mind that it wouldn't go well until like right before the conference started to roll around. And then I started to get really worried. I was like, oh gosh, I hope. I pull it off in a really good way, cuz I've just been expecting that it would be amazing all the way along.

Okay. But luckily it was amazing oh my gosh. It was beyond amazing and I felt, first of all, just so honored that you, I remember getting that email from you and just reading it again, and just being like, wait, . Yeah. What is Hunter inviting me to do? Oh my gosh.

And then the application process and encouraging you to include Julietta Scoog my business partner, and your trust in me, and willingness to allow her to apply to, and then both of us waiting. I just remember the waiting waiting to hear. Is this an even a real thing? We would talk about it in our team meetings.

Okay, we're holding November. We're holding the space. And we'll see what happens, and then finally getting that email of we are so excited to have you come. And I remember. And before I get to that, so when you were in conversation with this government agency in Abu Dhabi and they were explaining their vision, what was it that they wanted to create for the people?

The Emiratis that were gonna come to the. I was part of an international team it was myself And there was, amazing people, like people who had been, working in creative heads of Google and all these like really esteemed people who had done lots of conferences before.

I really hadn't. So I felt like the, okay, I'm just, I'm the Parenting person here, and, , they were a really great team and they had connections to a lots of amazing people. So it, and they were just an incredibly supportive, wonderful team. But the, what I came to understand through them was that you, One thing that's interesting about Abu Dhabi is that there's, there is a push to, to really grow and ex, to a push towards education, a push towards lots of liberal things, which are traditionally for the area, it's right next door to Saudi Arabia, like at one point before the seventies, like they were connected.

So the area is can be culturally very conservative. It is Islamic country. They have different cultural and religious roots, but also it's a very it's a very international country in that like they have. 85% of the population of Abu Dhabi is expats from all like 156 different countries

So it was really interesting. The idea was, let's, we wanna find what is the most progressive thinking in Parenting and that was really exciting for me cuz I was like, okay, if that's the case then I'm. This is great. I really want, and then the idea was to to move into, even, the science, the research, what is the most up-to-date progressive thinking about Parenting?

And so that was super, super exciting to me.

Stay tuned for more Mindful Mama podcast right after this break.

Yes. So exciting and such. There were so many contrasts, right? Like even being boots on the ground there. And we started out when Juliet Julietta and I traveled there, we spent the weekend before the conference in Dubai. And I, it was very important to me I wanna respect all of the rules, for women and how we need to dress, which.

Just for the listener. Dubai is like New York City and Abu Dhabi is like Washington DC Yeah. For the UA. Like Dubai, has the tallest buildings and like crazy, ski slope inside and all that stuff. And then Abu Dhabi is like the DC right, which is just like slightly more conservative. Yeah a lot more conservative in my experience.

And, but in, even in Dubai, it was like walking on the beach and seeing, women covered head to toe passing by another woman in the G-string, bi. And everybody's just doing their thing. And it was it just was such a, it was such an, the contrast, especially in Dubai for sure.

Existed less so in Abu Dhabi. But I love that. And talking to her, excellency, the leader of the government agency that was putting together this conference, her vision around I remember her saying something like, we need to catch up. We wanna catch. To this progressive minded, she wanted a way of being with our kids and raising kids and families and having conversations with her and her excitement.

And I'm slightly embarrassed right now. I only know, I only hear, I only heard her Excellency and so what was her name, Sarah something. Oh, no, I'm terrible at names. It is something like Sarah I'm sure I've forgotten like half of the speaker's names. I would have to see them in person and I'm really bad at that.

But it was really inspiring. She was on this leadership, at this level of leadership where she was the only woman of their excellences and for her to really push this vision, For a conference that really expanded the mindset around how we be with our kids, I thought was just so inspirational on so many levels, and I, like I said, was super excited that you reached out to me and that I got to do this thing while also feeling very much like I have no idea what all my only idea about the culture of that part of the world comes from TV and movie.

Right, and this feeling of representation, and I'm just a western and this western white, western woman showing up on stage to talk about Parenting. There was really some inner dialogue that I had around what makes me worthy of this? Microphone. Did you have any experience around that?

I was talking about how to stop yelling at your kids, which it turns out is like incredibly universal. And in fact, I think all the, a lot of Parenting topics were surprisingly universal. And this was something what I talked to Dr. Laura Markham about, because she's taught in Yeah. China and all different parts of the world.

And she said, Incredible universal Parenting and the challenges that we are dealing with kids. So there were huge cultural differences and yeah, we didn't really know about them going into it very much at all. My cultural crash course was you and I both were there. Like we went to the first day before the conference, we were brought to the camels, the Camel Festival, and then a traditional Emirati dinner at night.

So in the day we were brought out to a Camel festival, and Casey and Julietta had gone to Dubai first, so they were at in Abu Dhabi earlier than most of the other speakers. So is Casey and Julietta, and then like me, and like the organizing to keep . You were in, in the inner team, and we all, we were all brought out to this, to the desert, and there we were brought to a tent with golden chairs, a room with golden chairs and all the these, it and all in the tent and around the tent.

It was awesome. There were all these Beto and men and camels. So men, in the traditional white garb and the head scarf. And they taught us about the camel culture. And then we got to go and we ate dates and we were given coffee. And then we got to go and go out to these, view the Camel beauty contest and learn about how the, they screen for Botox.

I need boxing camels and collagen pillars and camels, which is amazing. $2 million camels . It was so bananas. It was wild. A whole lot that day. And then that night we had this incredible experience. What, and both of these were very Kinda this dive into the culture, cuz then we also had a lunch, but then at night we had this dinner where it was traditional.

So the women were brought inside, whereas the men were brought outside Yeah. To a tent. And by now a lot more speakers had arrived. So a lot of people came to this dinner in a home and it was somebody's magnificent home and we were in this magnificent space and the first lady Botswana was there and there were many of us and people serving us beautiful drinks and chocolates, and we got to dance and I got to talk to their 14 year old daughters of the house who are dancing.

And we talked about Halloween and gorgeous. And just gorgeous. I'm thinking back to the beautiful gowns they were wearing and just the makeup and the scents. Remember they brought out all the different scents, like smells and the perfumes and the, oh my gosh, it was. Yes. The perfumed oils.

Yes. Yeah. We were anointed literally with oils, which was so interesting to experience for many of us, and we had to there was some quick Googling and the bus ride home to understand what had happened with these oils? Why weren't we anointed with the oils? and we found out it was a great honor.

There was very expensive oils and that were, it was this lovely honor. And from what I understand or came to understand is that there's a big culture of privacy. There's a, in that culture, which may be why we weren't. Instructed on a lot of the cultural things ahead of time because there is a big culture of the private home.

And then Parenting, the conference was so interesting because it really dives right into the heart of the relationships. In the private home, right? The most private, intimate relationships. We even had a speaker, Avital Schreiber talk about partner intimacy in Abu Dhabi . It was like, wow. And do it incredibly well and very sensitively and and so it was really interesting this, that it felt.

We had this invitation in, this invitation we had we had, like in that dinner, we had this invitation into this private home and the way the whole conference was like this invitation into the family home, did you feel that way? Yeah, totally. And that, I have to just go back to the camel day because my biggest takeaway from that day, Oh shoot.

I put my hands on people a lot. a lot. And there was one particular guy, he was so great. He was our main character of the day, right? And he was so fun and so engaging and animated and I was standing next to so much, put my hand on his shoulder arm and Julietta finally was like, Casey, you are not allowed to touch him, touching him.

And then once I knew that rule, oh yes. I realized, oh my gosh, I do this all the. It was so hard for me, but, there's so many small little nuances to learn and yeah, I loved that it was designed for us to deep dive prior to the conference. It felt it was so nice to step on the stage when it was finally my turn.

So the conference was a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I spoke at 5:00 PM on the Thursday. Wow. And to look out at the people and I talked. Teens, raising teens and creating agreements and had this whole metaphor around, getting in the passenger seat and really allowing for our teens to move through their experiences without this overlying, idea of con you can control it.

And I was so grateful to have had some experiences, some cultural experiences, and then to also. Be able to say, to acknowledge Hey, I'm a Western woman from the United States and I'm learning about your culture and there is so much more for me to learn and I just invite you to listen and take what lands for you, and I felt like a collective sigh from the group when I said that because we did dig into some things and I invited people up to the stage and did some experiential activities. The high. Was I did an activity around empowering versus discouraging our teens. And one of the volunteers who was volunteering as a parent burst into tears in her processing on stage.

Oh, and. I know you're so nobody can see this, but Hunter just made a sad face in my heart. I'm like, oh yeah. Like when somebody is moved emotionally like that, when I'm, when we're working together, it is, it makes me feel so good because. I know that what we're moving through is impactful. Yeah. And so she, that was such a highlight for me.

And and she's a traditional Emirati woman and head to toe in black, her face was revealed. She didn't have the full face covering. But there's a picture of me with my arm around her and her just burrowing in and it's such a special moment that was captured. Here I am on the other side of the world offering an experience that is landing in the heart of this mother.

I think, I don't know how many times while we were in Abu Dhabi, I said to you, hunter, thank you. Thank you for that initial email cuz it was. , it was so special on so many levels. So many levels. And you talked about that private, those kind of universal topics. Like we're all raising teenagers, we're all trying not to yell.

We're all looking for more intimacy in our partnerships. There was a talk specifically calling in father. That was very well attended. There was a lot of fathers at the conference, which I thought was really powerful as well. What were some other cultural through lines that you saw during the conference between just what we were bringing and the people of Abu Dhabi and what they were, the what they were craving.

I think that there's a similar thing happening there in a lot of ways that's happening here. Where there there was this sort of traditional culture of, there is this still is this, in a lot of ways, and this is true here in the United States, this culture of authoritarian Parenting.

where the parents rule specifically the father rules, and there's the kids, those rules are enforced through fear and there isn't a lot of connection necessarily. And what I see there as well as here is a real desire for parents of this generation to move away from that to. Desire to move towards relationship and connection.

And that definitely crossed the boundaries. Like we, we don't want, necessarily our kids to hate us and fear us. And we were, we're starting to put together the pieces of what are the things that our parents did that. that created that, and how can we shift away from that? And we're starting that, that movement away from that.

And, but, a curiosity of what is on the other side of that, what will it look like, et cetera. So I, that was, I think, the cultural through line I saw, and yeah. And it was nice that the speakers, the message was you, Everybody was in agreement on that message in a lot of ways.

And as a, someone who went to the conference would hear the message in many different ways and many different voices about us calming our reactivity, right? I talked about how to stop yelling at your kids. And, but they learn different ways to calm their re reactivity in many different circumstances, in many different ways.

And so it was great to see some of the these messages of of greater awareness and greater compassion being reiterated in. Many different voices cuz that's how we all learn things right, is through repetition and and so it, it was exciting to I was excited about that. It, to me it seems like it's like a global movement in that way.

Yeah, it felt like that. And I loved having the opportunity to go and see each other speak. I was glad to be in the middle so that I could reference. Some of the other speakers, dr. Shefali was there, Chris Willard was there, and even stepping on stage, I wasn't nerve. Once it came time for me to talk, I felt pretty confident until I stepped on the stage and then my full body started to tingle and my heart started to race.

Like it wasn't in my head, it was in my body. And I got on stage and I said, oh, there it is, and I could see. In the crowd and had just watched him speak, I think that morning and kind of shouted out to him like, okay, Chris, I'm using some of the tools that you talked about in your talk about mindfulness and, coming back to calm and referencing, some of the messages that Dr.

Shefali had brought up and talking about generation Mindful and some of the things that were brought up in in her talk like it. . It was just really lovely to feel like you said, that alignment in our messaging as we took the stage and talked to and with the parents of Abuja, it was, yeah. It was so special and so powerful and I really credit your team in the ways that you connected the speaker.

Because that was like the best part of the conference was getting to know everybody else who was so jazzed. Like we're all I mean there was a lot of speakers from the area who were, less oh my God, where are we right now? And just the rest of us who were like, oh my God, what's happening,

And it was just so special to have so many touch. With each other, whether it was, getting to eat together throughout the day, watching each other's talks. The dinners that we did together, the cultural experiences that were offered to us, it was just. It was so cool. It was just so cool.

Yeah. And there was a lot of support people, we came together and supported each other. Yeah. We realized, like on my team that helped bring a lot of the speakers in, we realized, oh, now that we're here, we're gonna have to support these speakers in like, where do you go and where's what? Why is what?

And it was interesting cuz I. Really jet lagged. Yeah. And I was speaking, so I was a, it was a bigger crowd than I had really ever spoken before. Before. And I was also excited about meeting people that I admired so much. Like Jennifer Sr. And Peter Gray and Shefali Safari and I all, I was like, oh, I'm so excited to meet these people, and.

My job turned out to be on the ground that it was afterwards people have said, oh, my team said to me, oh, hunter, it's amazing how you had so much energy and I'd see you, you'd have a smile on your face and you'd be. Having a good time and I, it turns out that this is great work for me because I really felt like I was like the host of a party and I was like, oh, wonderful.

Harry Henry, the Harvard researcher, me, Victoria Dunkley. You have so much to talk about. Like I felt like I was the host of this great party and all these great people that I got to invite, and so I was having a really good time and all you. Representative, all the speakers that, some of the speakers that were in my little cohort, you all gave me so much energy to then be like, okay, come on, let's go to the next thing.

And this is where you go this do this, and this is when this is. It was fun. It was super fun. I really enjoyed it. And I was so exhausted by Saturn. Oh my gosh. I can only imagine how your team felt because you were, you must have been on WhatsApp like 24 7 cuz the WhatsApp, and there was like our group WhatsApp and then I'm sure plenty of side WhatsApp being happening, but I bet you were exhausted.

That was, it was incredible. And so I'm curious too, cuz I know for me, my message is, stepping into our joyful courage and being brave and leaning in and being uncomfortable and all of those things. And I, I know for me, my experience, I definitely. Had to practice tools. I definitely had moments on this, in this global opportunity right alongside all of these amazing people that I looked up to that were in my mind, big, much bigger deal than I am.

Right? There definitely was navigating of imposter syndrome and worthiness and comparing myself like. It was even interesting. So I did all my traveling with Julietta and she's this like little bubbly people person and I think I'm a people person, but I was like, all of a sudden I was questioning how much of a people person I was like noticing like, oh my God, Julietta, she's just so adorable.

And like watching myself slide into this old pattern. That used to show up with girlfriends like in high school, like comparing myself, I feel so clunky and where my ran, they like her more than me. And catching myself and really leaning into the tools that I practice with my kids, with my husband out in the world around.

I'm gonna feel my feet. I'm gonna, offer self-compassion, self-love. I belong here. That's why I'm here. I'm worthy to be here. And had to you. Carve out time every day to really be in that practice.

Stay tuned for more Mindful Mama podcasts right after this break.

What were some of the things that came up to you, if any that invited you into some of the mindfulness tools that you have practiced throughout your life? Did you have any wonky moments like I did? Oh yeah, for sure. And I had them for. A year going up to the conference because I was in this team of people who had put on amazing events and who had worked at Google and put on global conferences.

And I was like yeah. I've spoken in front of, probably 50 people in person and I've led some retreats and but they've all been small and things like that. All, always very intimate. Yeah. Yeah. And I knew that I loved speaking. Obviously I'm a Mindful Mama podcast. I like to talk.

For me, it was about the speaking in public, the like doing a talk and giving a talk. That was, for me, the hardest thing. And so I know that my tendency is to procrastinate and be like, eh, I got this, and then just wing it and not do such a great job. So I actually really did the opposite of that this time and I really prepared and I.

Speaking coach and I practiced speaking and I listened to myself speaking and I worked on it and, and that that helped me, by the time I got to the stage when 250 people are in front of me. And then I was. Happy with how I did, and then I was really happy when Jennifer Sr, who's did a TED talk in front of Al Gore, said to me, hunter, whatever would've known that you haven't done a lot of public speaking, you should do.

I was like, oh yeah, that's best thing anybody could have said to me. Yeah, and it was it was for me it was like a, it felt like a real oh, like it felt like my college chemistry class. I don't know if I'm good at this. I haven't done, necessarily a lot of this in the past, but if I get enough help and I work on it and I focus, whatever you practice grows stronger.

And, it was it felt like that, it felt like that a minus I got in college c. Oh, good job. Well done on that. . Yeah. I love that. I love that we can recognize places where we have growth, and I'm totally relating to the, I got this. It was funny how many iterations of my talk I created.

But it was like every time it was just take that out, put that in, take that out, put that in, take that out. Until I got to really, until I got to the stage and I was like, okay, here we are. I've got my cool whatever presentation thing. Oh yeah, you had interactive presentation. You and Julietta, you guys went so fancy.

I was really nervous about you and your tech. So were we, I have a great picture of Julietta in the middle of all the tech guys pointing at. At the laptop and making sure, like we had ver a variety of like, how are we gonna make this happen if that doesn't work, and if that doesn't work and if that doesn't work.

So once we settled into okay it works. And we became intimately involved with the tech team, then I think we both side and had a sigh of relief for sure. Hey, I just wanna give a shout out here to the team on the ground there at the, at this conference. So we didn't really, we had no, not that much contact.

I had zero contact with them really at all, beforehand. And we didn't know what to expect. And when we got there, there were on it, they had so much, there was such a high level production. There were dancers, there were musicians, there was hair and makeup. There was an incredible, photography team.

The tech team was just, it's incredible. Great. And I just wanna give a shout out to this team on the ground that threw together this incredible experience in an incredibly short amount of time. Yeah, for sure. That it was, it. It was amazing. They pulled it. They really pulled it off, and it felt very professional and very polished.

And just again, such an honor to be there. Anything else that you wanna make sure to share about the shared experience that we had? Any favorite moments? I think for me, the thing that really it pulls out for me is just, it was like the power of community, the power of coming together in person.

It would've not have been the same if it, they were always very insistent and it would, during all these covid spikes and things that had to be in-person. And that's hard when you have to have people fly for 14. But I'm so glad it was because the personal, in an age where we are becoming so independent of one another, but those points we need each other.

And we need to connect in that there's such a power in that community. I'm just so grateful. That somebody wanted to put that kind of those kind of resources into something like Parenting, which is traditionally not funded and celebrated to that extent, and the power of coming together in a community and seeing, oh, like here are all these, over points of overlap that we have and that we share and to.

Have these connections with the, especially I connected in a lot of ways with some of these, the moms on the ground in Abu Dhabi. And to talk to them and hear their stories and hear about their kids and their challenges and it was just amazing to me how they all, I'll ask the same questions people ask here.

It was so interesting, the universality of it and to me it was just like a it was a huge touchstone in my life, I think. Yeah, definitely. Me too. Me too. We're gonna share, we're each gonna share this conversation on our pod, so I'm just gonna let your listeners know that. Oh yeah.
