A Course in Mindful Parenting
A 2-hour workshop in mindful parenting for those who are interested in learning about mindfulness or for those who have participated in a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course.
Mindful Parenting is being fully present in each moment with your child with kindness, consideration and compassion.
Class Description: So often the demands of life affect our ability to practice patience and deep listening with our children, which can impact the quality of the parent/child interaction. Identifying reactive patterns and exploring options for attending to the unplanned stressors can improve the quality of life and relationship between a parent and child. In this 2-hour workshop, participants will be introduced to the foundations of Mindfulness practice and techniques for paying attention to present moment experience while engaging with their children.
Benefits of Mindful Parenting:
- A deeper awareness of your own stress reactions
- An increased ability to respond more skillfully to the unplanned and stressful moments with your child
- Learning to listen with kindness to yourself and your child
- Learning to problem-solve with your child with patience and wisdom
This program is based upon the book Everyday Blessings by Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn.
