Many participants from mindfulness courses explain how the practice helps with difficult times, but also how it helps them enjoy the little things in life. In family life, this might be having a meal together, bath time or bed time.These can either be very challenging occasions or moments to embrace, depending on how you are feeling mentally and emotionally. This is where mindfulness can help you to breathe, relax and approach situations with a greater sense of calm and control; to accept that being a parent is extremely rewarding but, as with most rewarding endeavours, it has its challenging times.
This course begins with an introduction to mindfulness and then teaches techniques to:
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â·Keep your mind present and fully enjoy the good times
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â·Cope and find some headspace during the difficult times
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â·Authentically communicate with family members
Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â·Mindfully ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“do stuffÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ together!
Each week, the sessions include an array of different mindfulness meditations. Each participant will receive a CD or mp3ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s of guided meditations; and a workbook with some information, home practice suggestions and space for reflection, all based on your mindfulness practice within family life.
