Meditation Courses and Mindfulness based services in County Louth
Mindful Parenting Course
An 8 week course in Mindful Parenting will commence on Thursday 4th February 2016 from 7-9pm
The course will begin to help parents bring mindfulness to their parenting, as we do so we develop the ability to be present and to listen with full attention to our children. We begin to recognise each child or teenager’s unique nature, qualities, abilities and feelings. We can then see them as they are and not as we want them to be, without judging ourselves or them.
The course consists of the following themes taught over the 8 two hour sessions:
Theme 1. Introducing Mindful Parenting
Theme 2. Bringing a beginner’s mind to parenting
Theme 3. Reconnecting with Our Body as a Parent
Theme 4. Learning about our patterns of reactivity to Parental Stress
Theme 5. Responding to Parental Stress
Theme 6. Are we there yet? Where mindful parenting can take us.
As part of this course, you will learn mindfulness practices such as the “Breathing Space and the “Mindfulness of Breathing” . You will also receive a workbook and a practice CD
The course is suitable for both new parents as well as those with more experience
The cost of this course will be €190 (deposit of €80 required on booking)
