The “Mindful Parent” is a 24-hour programme that aims to develop mindfulness as a life skill that allows us to foster the attitudes of curiosity, creativity and compassion in how we relate to ourselves and others. The course is specifically focused on our experience in relation to living with and looking after children.
Mindfulness, which is defined as the capacity to maintain awareness of our present moment experience without judgement, has been the subject of intensive research for more than 40 years. The scientific evidence confirms its far-reaching benefits for our mental and physical health.
The programme is also offered in one-on-one format.
