Description

Discover how Mindful Parenting develops deeper connections between you and your child


Mindful Parenting is about recognizing and meeting our children’s needs as wisely as possible by cultivating greater familiarity and intimacy with a capacity we already have and therefore don’t have to acquire, namely awareness itself. - Jon & Myla Kabat-Zinn

A family that is present in itself is the definition of a mindful family – one that has found the key to togetherness, happiness and wellbeing, which also sets the tone for its worldview, future and relationships with others. Mindful families develop a unique way of connecting with one another. They are more open and available for connections while being extra attentive and accepting to one another’s needs. This in turn helps nurture a positive mindset and attitudes for relationships that occur and develop outside of the family.

The road to a Mindful Family begins with Mindful Parenting. This 2-hour Mindful Parenting workshop will guide you as parents with the art of being fully present in the lives of your child. You will further discover simple yet powerful Mindful Parenting techniques that can bring presence and awareness into your relationship with your child.

Important note: There must be a minimum of 5 participants registered for this workshop to proceed

The parent/child relationship is one that needs wisdom and the ability to nurture a positive relationship. However, as busy and working adults, we often feel we don’t have the bandwidth to nurture positive relationships with total presence, which often leads to frustration and life dissatisfaction that follow children through to adulthood and their later years.

We can in fact change this effect on our lives and our children’s lives, by simply bringing awareness into our thoughts, emotions and behaviours while we are parenting our children.

Would you want a more connected family? Attend this mini workshop to start your journey to a mindful and happy family.
