Parenting Self-Care: Building Resilience in Difficult Times

Tuesdays, December 1 & 8

This virtual two-part parenting workshop is an opportunity for parents to come together and explore skillful means for meeting the parenting challenges of these times with an open heart, touching upon the intersection of technology, youth mental health, and challenging family dynamics.

We will engage in guided practice around self-care, with an emphasis on identifying and cultivating our inner resources and resilience. Special attention will be paid to attending to our own emotions during stressful times, and the impact this has on how we see and engage with our children. Drawing on our community strength, we will explore how the practices of mindfulness and compassion can reduce tension, enhance inner well-being, and strengthen our relationships.

Note: Because this is an online retreat, participants are encouraged to find space of relative quiet, limiting the amount of interaction with others in the environment as much as possible. Participants may join by internet or via phone. 

Participants will be given the Zoom link in the registration confirmation email and again via email the week before the course begins.
