Our Meditation Playdates are designed for parents who wish to foster a deeper connection with their child and meet other like-minded parents.
Mindfulness and self-compassion can help parents understand their own emotions and tune in to those of their children. You can strengthen the attachment with your child by being present - listening, taking in all cues with curiosity and kindness. This also fosters your child’s self-regulation and social-emotional abilities.
This class is open to all primary caregivers with children from 0 to 3 years of age. It works beautifully with infants and toddlers alike.
There will be a brief introduction to Mindfulness practice, then about 30 minute guided meditation followed by sharing and Q&A. Kids in arms or at play while parents practice being silently present and open to whatever unfolds, responding to children in a discerning way.
No previous meditation experience is necessary.
Terms & conditions:
1. All adult participants are entirely responsible for their own health and wellbeing - let's be kind to ourselves.
2. All adult participants are responsible for the health, wellbeing and actions of any child they bring to the class - let's keep our kids safe.
We suspended all in-person classes until it's safe to gather again. Join our tribe in the closed Mothers Pause facebook group!
"There is something simple and life affirming in the attachment message that the only thing your child needs in order to thrive emotionally is your emotional availability and responsiveness."
