In this practical class, we will be exploring different mindfulness and compassion tools to help you stay present and kind during all the ups and downs of parenting. We will also be examining ways mindfulness can help you re-frame common parenting challenges and cultivate balance and joy in the parenting journey itself.
No prior meditation experience is necessary. This class will be a mix of meditations, discussions, and experiential learning.
