Mindful Parenting workshop is designed to introduce parents to the practices of Mindfulness as applied to parenting. These practices allow parents to bring a level of conscious awareness into their interactions with their children.
You will discover how mindfulness can help you navigate the ups and downs of parenting by learning to be fully present with your children in both shared moments of joy as well as when your buttons have been pushed to the limit. Mindfulness teaches awareness and regulation of automatic reactions and behaviors. It supports the development of compassion for self and others. Parents can use mindfulness when facing common challenges such as responding to toddler tantrums, helping children cope with school, peers and siblings or communicating with teenagers. By practicing Mindfulness it will help you transform your relationship with your children from one of stress, control, manipulation and conflict to one of ease, understanding, connection, love and respect.

No experience necessary. Appropriate for beginners and those with Mindfulness experience.
