This workshop is an introduction to the art of mindfulness in our daily lives and to the conscious parenting approach. We will cover how these tools will benefit our family by providing practical guidelines for loving presence and resilience. If we as parents are not self-aware how can we expect our children to be the same?
Beginning with ourselves by being conscious of our own feelings, expectations and triggers, will allow us to build stronger and deeper relationships with our children. By experiencing the practice of mindfulness through simple meditation, movement and relaxation techniques we will learn to connect with ourselves so that we can then connect deeply with our children and enjoy a transformative healing process that is at the heart of parenting.
