Connect with fellow parents while exploring ways to cultivate inner sanity and loving presence through practices of mindfulness and compassion.
Parenting is a life’s work in process. This process can be energizing and exhausting, fulfilling and lonely in the best of times. Parenting in a pandemic has placed an unusual strain on our lives and our children’s lives. While there is no quick fix to the unpredictability of life, practicing mindfulness and compassion can help us respond and relate to change with a greater sense of calm, empathy and agency.
This workshop, spread over four weeks, offers each participant a space to explore mindful parenting in a safe, confidential and supportive online environment, as well as time to practice.
- June 7, 7:00 - 9:00pm EDT: Introduction to mindfulness and compassion practices such as bringing kind attention to our thoughts and feelings, listening from the wisdom of our hearts, and learning about the window of tolerance.
- June 14, 21 and 28, 8:00 - 8:45pm EDT: An opportunity to further integrate these practices into daily life, with a brief meditation and sharing of experiences and questions.
Attendance is important to developing a practice and a supportive community. Please make a commitment to be part of each session.
