This education program offers instruction in mindfulness practices including meditation and its application for reducing stress and cultivating self-compassion. The program includes didactic presentations, guided mindfulness exercises and time for dialogue and sharing around how mindfulness can address parenting. In between classes participants are instructed to cultivate daily meditation practice as well as applying mindfulness to parenting and other daily activities.

Topics we will be exploring include:
What is mindfulness? How can it help me as a parent? How can we better manage our own difficult emotions as parents? How can we move from coping to living more meaningful lives?
