In this course you will discover how mindfulness can support you as a parent. As parents, we tend to give ourselves a hard time and doubt our ‘parenting style’. Balancing work and home life can be difficult and at times overwhelming. 

In this short course, you will get a better understanding not only of your child and how your child’s brain works but also of yourself and your own habits of reactivity. You will learn how to communicate in a more meaningful, compassionate, and fun way.

As parents, we tend to neglect ourselves and on this course, you will discover the importance of learning the skills of mindfulness so that you can take better care of yourself. When we are able to find stability and stillness, even amidst the busyness of family life, we resource ourselves. By being more self-compassionate and finding ways to cultivate joy and happiness you create an environment in which your child grows. 

The course includes 8 x 10-minute audio teachings, as well as recorded practices for you to listen to in your own timing, 

plus access to monthly live facilitated drop-in sessions where you will share a practice with other participants of courses run by The Heart Movement and have the opportunity to ask questions and gain support from an experienced facilitator.

As well as access to a dedicated group on The Heart Movement App in which you can chat with other participants, ask questions, and share inspiration and resources.
