Mindfulness-Based Parenting Seminars & Workshops
Mindfulness-based parenting is to engage with your child on a journey to wholeness, being aware of your emotional patterns and how they impact your child’s growth and development. Part of bringing mindful awareness into parenting is seeking out opportunities to learn more about your child’s world and how you can support them in their own journey. These classes explore parental self-care, relational connection, child/teen development, cultural trends, and basic information on social and emotional learning, all in the context of mindful awareness.
Mindfulness-based parenting seminars and groups integrate easily into a school’s programming needs, as they provide important information that will help parents navigate 21st century issues with their kids. Please contact Shelly to learn more or to set up classes for your school.
