Mindfulness For Parents

Mindfulness For Parents

Fridays, 8 - 9:15 am

Six-Week Course, Friday, September 6 - October 18 (No session on September 13th)

In the words of Shinzen Young, “[M]indful awareness is a skill set. In that regard, it’s no more controversial than learning to shoot hoops or to play the piano. But it’s an attentional skill set and how we pay attention can influence how we perceive and behave.”

Shinzen Young calls our attention to 8 facets of mindfulness, which offers much to contemplate:
1. Mindfulness – The Word
2. Mindfulness – The Awareness
3. Mindfulness – The Practices
4. Mindfulness – The Path
5. Mindfulness – The Translation
6. Mindfulness – The Fad
7. Mindfulness – The Shadow
8. Mindfulness – The Possible Revolution

This six-week course will explore these facets of mindfulness and its use in every day life and its relationship to parenting.
