Mindfulness for Parents

This is a six-week structured programme developed for parents and carers. It is designed to give you the skills to work with your children to develop a mindful lifestyle. Included in the structure are creative mindful activities, videos and meditations.

We will model the mindful activities and allow time for you to work with your children before introducing the next step. During each session there will be time for reflections and discussion.

On completion of the programme, you and your children will be equipped with life skills that will encourage self-awareness and emotional intelligence, thus better able to deal with the difficulties that you and your child may experience.

The programme content includes:

Meditation Sessions

These will develop yours and your child’s awareness of thought patterns, awareness of emotions and of body sensations, being kind to self and others and will equip you with the tools to observe what is happening in the present moment.

Mindful Activities

These include mindful movement, yoga, mindfulness of sound, mindfulness of senses, mindful coping strategies and ‘kindfulness’.
