Mindfulness Lab: R.A.I.N. - A Compassionate Approach to Mindful Parenting
Tools for when you feel OVERwhelmed and UNDER resourced as a parent.
With meditation teacher Jackie Stewart. Four one-hour sessions, live online.
We are excited to offer a new program for parents and parents-to-be. The wonderful Mindfulness teacher Jackie Stewart (a beloved member of our parenting community) will facilitate four 1-hr evenings of teachings and guided practices organized around the acronym R.A.I.N., with a special compassion-based approach for parents. Jackie is a gifted teacher and we know you will benefit immensely from this course. We hope you will attend these 4 sessions live online, but it will be possible to listen to recordings at your convenience.
Why Mindfulness Lab: R.A.I.N? Parenting is hard emotional and physical work and mindfulness is a powerful and practical resource for everyday parenting challenges. How can we listen to our kids with kind patience when we are tapped out? How can we set limits with warmth when we are overwhelmed? How can we find the attention for special time when we are exhausted? We are thrilled Jackie Stewart will take us through steps to re-center and offer kindness to ourselves, even in the midst of our hardest moments as parents.
