Mindful Parenting
In this course, we broaden the scope of the mindfulness teachings in order to develop our family relationships. Mindfulness can nourish us as parents, and greatly benefit our family lives. It can help us to reduce stress, speed and destructive behaviour, and enable us to be fully present for our children. In these sessions we will practise some simple mindfulness techniques, and explore how these practices can be brought into family life. We will learn how to open and soften in difficult circumstances, and how to work with those moments when our children are especially challenging.
