for Children & Parents

 Saturday, November 9

 10am- 12pm 

This workshop is for your family if you…

  •  find yourself short tempered and irritable when your children "push your buttons”
  • often feel stressed, anxious, out of sync and exhausted
  • want to learn skills that help you and your children cope better with stress and anxiety
  • want to create a happier, calmer and more mindful family

 Mindful parenting is the hardest and most important job on the planet. Its about doing our best to show up to each moment with awareness and compassion and giving our children the precious gift of our presence.    Erica Rayner-Horn

Both parents and children have a lot of stresses to deal with these days with our rushed and over-scheduled lives and it's easy to fall into patterns of tension, irritability and reactivity. It doesn't help that society highly values the workplace and its demands, and undervalues the crucial importance of bringing up our children in peaceful and mindful homes. As parents we do our best but often wish we had more capacity to deal with our own stress, and better skills to relate mindfully with both our children and our partners.

 In this workshop children and adults will:

  •  learn together simple mindfulness meditations 
  • learn skills to calm down, breathe and release tension
  • discuss ways to bring mindfulness into your family's everyday life
  • explore family rituals for mealtimes, bedtime, family night 

 Please Note: the focus of the workshop is children and parents learning together- children must be accompanied by at least one adult familt member.

Cost: $40 per Family- Includes any number of children and adults in the same family. You can bring Grandma or any other family member connected to your child.                 NOTE: If the fee is a hardship please contact Erica for scholarship
