Join us for a 6-week Mindful Parenting course. This is aimed at parents and carers of young children and young teens. During the course we will be looking initially at our own wellbeing, noting that how we are directly affects how our children are. We know that how we are, how we respond to the stresses and strains of daily life, impacts more on our children than anything that we say to them. We need to be able to show our children how to respond to the emotional stressors in life - rather than being pulled along reactively to these.
In this 6-week course we learn how to be more present for our children, how to be with our difficulties without being overwhelmed and how to bring a sense of calm and ease into family life. As well as having the opportunity to share practices in the sessions, there is a handbook full of practices to share with your children.
The 6-week course costs £150. There is an earlybird discount, for anyone booking in before the end of September (£130). Please get in contact for concessionary or subsidised spaces. There is also an option of paying a £50 deposit now, and then setting up a payment plan for the remainder.
The six weeks look like this;
Session 1: What is mindful parenting?
Session 2: Paying Attention
Session 3: Mindful Listening
Session 4: Mindfulness of Feelings
Session 5: Managing the Big Feelings with Self-Compassion
Session 6: Nourishing Happiness and Gratitude
