Mindful (and Heartful!) Parenting

In this practical and fun class, we will be exploring mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion practices (along with some tried-and-true parenting guides, your own inner resources, and the shared wisdom of the group) to help you stay present, kind, and connected while parenting, even under challenging circumstances.  You’ll find some practices that “work for you” to create some additional balance, ease, and joy as you navigate all the ups and downs that come with being a parent.  This class will be a mix of meditations, discussions, and experiential learning.  No prior meditation experience is necessary!

Day and Time:  Thursdays at noon for 4 weeks.

Connection Information:  You will get connection information from the teacher prior to the first class.
