MINDFULNESS FOR PARENTS (FOR THOSE WITH CHILDREN OF ANY AGE):
6 CLASS SERIES, MONDAY NIGHTS, 7PM – 9PM, OCTOBER 8 – NOVEMBER 12
Contractions aren’t just for labor and birth!
Contractions – moments of tightness / challenge / stress / knotted-up-ness – are a fact of life. Often there are many in our lives as parents as we deal with crying babies, screaming toddlers, fighting siblings, anxious kids, sulking teenagers, or even floundering young adults. This makes parenthood sound like so much fun, doesn’t it? We all know there is another side to each of those coins, of course. But can we be in the moments that make up our lives? Can we feel them? Can we live into them more fully?
Mindfulness practice invites us to sink into all the moments of our lives, to find ease and presence no matter the weather, and to ride the inevitable waves of our lives as they move up and down with varying speed and intensity.
Take this class series if you’d like to explore mindfulness, jumpstart a regular practice, restart a previously held practice, or if you’re interested in developing skills for dealing with the contractions of life as a parent, and a person, with comrades.
This class is for parents with kids of any age, can be taken alone or with a partner, and is only open to adults. This class does require a commitment to the series – it is not a drop-in class. A commitment to practicing mindfulness each day is a great way to reap the benefits of practice, but all you need to bring to class is a willingness to look closely at your own mind and see what you find!
