Mindful Parenting: Wednesday, 6/3 from 7:00-8:00 PM CST
Parenting can be one of the most challenging roles of our lives—yet few of us walk into it having the inner resources and skillsets it demands. Mindful parenting can help parents manage stress, better care for their own well-being, foster the parent-child connection, and cultivate a child’s capacity for self-reflection. This online offering will introduce you to the foundations of mindful parenting and provide you with some simple practices to support you along your parenting journey. Instructor: Amy Schonhoff
The Heart of Mindfulness:
Wednesday, 6/10 from 7:00-8:00 PM CST
Mindfulness is a practice that cultivates both the mind and the heart of the practitioner. It is ultimately this dual training that teaches us to meet the present moment with a greater sense of openness, balance and stability. In this online presentation, you'll learn more about the practices and principles that cultivate the "heartfulness" of mindfulness and some simple practices to bring these qualities into your daily life.
Mindful communication helps to bring awareness and choice into the process of dialogue so we can begin to break away from old habits that undermine understanding. Training our attention to notice our habits can free us to cultivate a style of relating that acknowledges our experience while allowing space for others to express themselves. This online offering will introduce you to the foundations of mindful communication and offer some simple practices to incorporate into your interpersonal communications. Instructor: Amy Schonhoff
