Mindfulness for Parents Workshop
Mindfulness arrow
Wednesday April 17
7pm – 8:30pm
Iron Horse Middle School MPR
We hear a lot about Mindfulness, but what is it and how do we do it?
Mindfulness is the process of settling the mind using self-directed intent, so that our brain and body can be available to be non-reactionary, kind, and thoughtful in response to an exciting or nerve-wracking moment. To get closer and closer to non-reactionary, we also need to practice watching our judgments.
The goal of this FREE workshop is to help parents begin learning and practicing the techniques of mindfulness. Participants will walk out with ideas to use at home and share with their families.  RSVP HERE.
