Parenting can be one of the most challenging roles of our lives—yet few of us walk into it having the inner resources and skill sets it demands. Mindfulness practices can be a great source of refuge while managing the challenges of modern-day parenting. Over thirty years of research has empirically demonstrated that developing the skills of mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety, improve well-being, increase relationship satisfaction, adaptability, empathy, and compassion.
"Being a mindful parent means living with greater awareness of our moment-to-moment experience while cultivating a nonjudgmental acceptance of ourselves and our children."
Developing the capacity to be mindful within the parent-child relationship can ameliorate the stress of parenting, foster emotional connection between parent and child and support a child's capacity for self-reflection.
During this program, participants will:
- Be introduced to a working definition of mindful parenting
- Understand the underpinnings of mindful parenting
- Learn how mindful parenting can positively influence our relationships with ourselves, our connection with our children, and support our children in developing their own self-awareness
