What is a Mindful Parenting Group?

The Mindful Parenting Group will combine the benefits of learning to develop a mindfulness practice with parenting support and education.  Led by two experienced meditation and mindfulness practitioners and a psychologist, the goal of this group will be to help you bring calm, clarity, wisdom and joy into your daily life.  It is the practice of using self-awareness to know how to slow down, think, and make decisions that will help both parent and child live with greater ease and happiness.

Benefits of Mindful Parenting:

  • Understanding our own stress reactions
  • Increasing calm and stability in ourselves and our children
  • Fostering a greater connection between parent and child
  • Increasing attention, focus and concentration
  • Enriched appreciation of the ordinary moments of life
  • Learning to listen with kindness to ourselves and our children

 

To register for this group, email us at mindfulparenting123@gmail.com.  Space is limited.
