Mindful Parenting Series
Every other Thursday, September 17-October 29
12:30-1:30 p.m. (ET) / 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (CT)
Do you find yourself yelling at your kids, threatening them, or flying off the handle on a regular basis? Do you have every intention to have a great day as a family, but quickly find yourself losing your patience with your kids over the smallest things? In order to create calmness and peace in your home, you must first have the knowledge, skills, and ability to cultivate it within.
This class offers clear, beginner-level guidance for developing your own daily meditation practice using breath awareness and focused attention meditation exercises. Each class offers basic instruction in the techniques of meditation in order to cultivate a sense of peace within that can be transmitted to your kids and family.
We all have the best intentions for raising our children, but often lack the skills to be effective parents. Attending Nellie's workshop was one of the best investments I've made for the benefit of my family. Not only do I now understand specific developmental needs of my children, but she also presented practical tools for my personal growth and development as a father." — Chris Lair, father of Tommy, 3 and Lucy, 2.
