About Hunter Clarke-Fields

Hunter started blogging and podcasting about parenthood when her kids were babies and believes that it's not enough to just know the "right" way to respond, it takes inner work to reduce our biological stress response—so that we can access our more thoughtful, loving selves. At a time when parents worry about internet influence, kid’s anxiety, and avoiding “helicopter parenting,” Hunter shares the new path to changing generational patterns and raising confident kids.

She helps parents get their kids to listen without losing their sh*t, bringing more calm and peace into their daily lives. Hunter is a certified mindfulness teacher with over twenty years of experience in meditation practices and has taught mindfulness to thousands worldwide. She is the mother of two active daughters, who challenge her every day to hone her craft!
