Mindfulness for Parents


  • Special Olympics 3212 N Skipwith Rd # 100 Richmond, VA 23294 (map)

Description
Having children is a sure way to learn about the vastness of our hearts---and to find out the limits of our patience. Mindfulness  can offer parents principles and practices that both enrich the parenting experience and provide skills for navigating the inevitable stressful times.

This program is for parents who wish to develop their own mindfulness practice in order to be more present, more attuned and more equanimous with their kids.

We are excited to share that the Special Olympics Virginia in Henrico is hosting us in their space for this timely and relevant course!
