CCHS Parent Association Presents:
MINDFUL PARENTING WORKSHOP
March 5, 2018 7pm-9pm
Concord-Carlisle High School Auditorium
Mindfulness practices can fundamentally transform one’s own life and can also enrich and deepen the quality of our family relationships. Recent research suggests that mindful parenting can also reduce stress and anxiety levels in ourselves and in our children. Join Rose Cratsley, Founder of Ivy Child, in a workshop that will offer an introduction to mindfulness and provide mindful tools and strategies to help participants:
- Develop a more mindful bond with their child(ren)
- Parent with deeper presence
- Relieve stress
- Improve emotional well-being
- Establish mindful practices as a family
As parents, perhaps the most precious thing we can give our children is the gift of our full presence, in the moment. This workshop will teach us to make space for mindfulness practice in our own lives, with the realization that we can only give to our children what we have given first and fundamentally to ourselves.
