Mindfulness for Parents


  • Chrysalis Institute 213 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

Having children teaches us about the vastness of our hearts as well as the boundaries of our patience! In this 6-session class, we'll explore mindfulness principles and practices (and the brain-based research behind them), providing you with skills to navigate the inevitable stresses of parenthood. You'll walk away with foundations for your own mindfulness practice to be more present, attuned, calm, and composed with your kids.

Facilitators

Sherry dove into mind/body wellness after her daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2009. She learned how to manage her anxiety surrounding the diagnosis through exercise, nutrition and practicing mindfulness.
