Parenting as a Path means to engage with your child on a journey to wholeness; being aware of your mental and emotional patterns and how they impact your ability to relax, see clearly, and respond effectively to your child’s growth and development. Integrating mindfulness-based parenting & communication practices into the personal and family routine can create a more peaceful home through the deeper connections cultivated in parents and children.This half-day workshop will explore the foundational areas of growth for bringing mindfulness to parenting and we will teach a mindful parenting communication practice that you can immediately use to deepen your connection with your children and help them to integrate and process the daily stressors in their lives. This method will work for children of ANY age (even adult children).
Participants will be able to:
- Experience guided mindfulness practices (no experience necessary)
- Learn foundational concepts of using mindfulness in parenting
- Learn/Experience transformative communication skill that can immediately be used with family
- Explore and Practice parenting strategies that will build connection and reduce reactivity in the home
- Engage in opportunity to “troubleshoot” issues related to kids of any age

Shelly is absolutely on the pulse of what kids are experiencing, exposed to and feeling in today’s world - which is so different than what I experienced as a child/teenager." - Joanna Jerome
