Perfectly Imperfect: Foundations of Mindful Parenting

Support. Education. Tools.

Let's face it - Parenting is hard. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be the "perfect parent," and ultimately, we just want our kids to be happy and thrive. The ancient practice and wisdom of mindfulness helps us to understand that we are all perfectly imperfect and that we have all the tools within us to manage stress, choose our responses and show up in a way that helps to foster resiliency in our kids. 

This 90 min interactive presentation and practice session for parents and caregivers of young children will teach the foundations of mindfulness and most importantly, how mindfulness can help you be more present, compassionate and accepting for your children or the children you care for. 

Participants will learn simple strategies to cultivate mindfulness in daily life, model and teach self-reflection and acceptance, and nurture the evolving parent/child connection.

Since the mindfulness and parenting series, I have been able to focus on increasing my patience. Learning about self compassion through mindfulness practice led me to better care for myself which helps me care for my daughter. Even with a small change of adding meta practice, I have noticed a change in my ability to regain control of my emotions in stressful situations. Sarah poses very helpful and thought-provoking questions while creating a safe space to discuss and learn. She gave us a perfect mix of education, discussion, and mindfulness practice. Each week I felt I was able to work on rebalancing myself. I took away a number of skills as well as the confidence to continue my learning and practice of mindfulness as a parent.
