Being a parent is particularly intense and demanding, in part because our children can ask things of us no one else could or would. They see us up close as no one else does, and constantly hold mirrors up for us to look into.
In doing so, they give us over and over again the chance to see ourselves in new ways, and to work at consciously asking what we can learn from any and every situation that comes up with them.Myla and Job Kabat-Zinn, Everyday Blessings: the inner work of mindful parenting
We understand that life is complicated and sometimes doesn’t fit into a neat box. For that reason, we also offer personalized individual and small group sessions for those who are looking for something more specifically tailored to their situation.
We find that the MBCP course really is inclusive and adaptable to many situations, regardless of personal experience, but if you feel you would benefit from one-on-one time, we’re happy to connect with you and create the perfect offering to meet your needs. This could look like a one time session, or perhaps a short series.
We are also available to give presentations on MBCP and mindfulness practices during the childbearing year to local birth workers and mental/behavioral health providers who are interested in learning more about the science and practice of mindfulness for this population.
