Intro Mindfulness for Parents

Navigating the ups-and-downs of parenting with mindfulness

Parents can learn to be fully present with their children and teenagers – both in shared moments of joy and in times of conflict. Mindfulness can support parents to nurture moments of self-care so they can slow down and savour the day-to-day experience of being a parent – from the toddler to teenage years.

Mindfulness meditation teaches people how to develop a non-reactive, non-judgmental stance and to approach themselves and others with compassion. It can help parents facing common challenges such as comforting a colicky baby, dealing with toddler tantrums, helping children cope with school, or talking with teens.

Who Should Attend
Parents and expectant parents. Previous experience with mindfulness is not required.

Timing: Half-day workshop
