What is mindful parenting?

Parenting can often feel like a juggling act. Balancing the demands of work and home life, coordinating schedules, and dealing with daily hassles can leave little time for joyful connection with our children. In this 8-week program, parents will learn how shifting the emphasis from doing to being has a profound effect on parent-child relationships. We will explore how a mindful approach to parenting moves us from reactive to reflective and helps us to recognize and respond to the needs of our children.

Through meditation, group exercises, and discussion, parents will gain greater awareness and acceptance of themselves and their children in order to shift from mind full to mindful parenting.
