Mindful practice deepens our awareness and helps us act wisely as parents, even in stressful times.
When we bring kindness and present-moment attention to ourselves and our relationships with our child(ren), we will see and accept our own imperfections and our past experiences (even the painful ones) so that we can support our children with more awareness and connection.
Mindful parenting is not some new scientific discovery. Rather, it is an inner practice that can be simply embedded in our daily life and is waiting for you to discover.
You will learn how contemporary scientists have defined and studied mindful parenting. This new research explores the relationships between parents’ mindfulness and children’s wellbeing. This area of study also teaches us about best practices in everyday parenting. You will hear some of the most recent findings on the positive effects of mindfulness on our psychological and physical wellbeing, especially how mindfulness may affect our stress physiology. You will also gain some mindfulness techniques you can use in everyday parenting.
