MINDFUL PARENTING COURSE
This five-week, on-line course is for parents who want to explore how practising mindfulness can transform their parenting and their relationship with their children. By cultivating awareness in your daily life, you will learn to interact with your child from a calm and connected place, allowing for greater understanding and compassion, reducing conflict in the home, and facilitating healthy and loving relationships.
This course is inclusive and based on respect for our children's voices and autonomy. It is particularly suited to parents of neurodivergent children and those outside of mainstream schooling.
IN THE COURSE
Cultivating awareness - noticing your triggers
Unraveling old patterns and fears
The transformational power of responding from a calm place
Dealing with conflict in a compassionate way
Listening to your child with full attention
Rediscovering your child and accepting them for who they are
Rediscovering yourself and meeting your own needs
Modeling a life you believe in
Daily mindfulness and self-compassion practices to support you.
THIS COURSE IS IDEAL FOR YOU IF:
You find yourself getting stressed and reactive with your children.
You feel frequently overwhelmed and critical of yourself.
You would like to reduce the amount of conflict in your home, and introduce more ease and understanding.
You would simply like to explore how to live a more connected and joyful life with your children.
Each session will include a theory component, some group discussion, a short meditation, and a mindfulness/self-compassion practice. It is very helpful if participants are able to carve out 20 minutes in their daily lives for deepening their mindfulness skills, through listening to the guided meditations that accompany the course.
After each session, you'll receive a recording of the session along with comprehensive notes of everything that was covered, including practices that you can put into action that same week in your home. You'll also have email support with me for any questions or challenges that arise between sessions.
I am a trained Mindfulness teacher with over 10 years of personal mindfulness practice. In this course, I bring together my teaching experience along with my own personal experience of parenting and, in particular, of parenting a PDA child. Mindfulness is wonderful for all parenting, but in cases where conflict is highly likely and often unpredictable, it really can be transformational for the whole family.
There will be five weekly (Thursday) sessions of 90 minutes each.
Maximum of 8 participants per group.
