Meditation

The practice of meditation is to learn to be fully present in each moment of our lives. So often we go through the day
without being present, responding simply with habitual patterns of impulsivity or reactivity and preconceptions of how things should be.

Meditation is an opportunity to break through these patterns and preconceptions to gain a larger perspective in which openness and understanding can arise. From this perspective we can see things as they are and live in a more relaxed way with full attention on each moment.

All courses and workshops are held in The Meditation Center in Wilmington (across the hall from the Empowered Yoga studio) unless otherwise noted.

This 8-week course teaches parents to move away from reactionary, "autopilot" parenting through the practices of mindfulness. Parenting is fundamentally about how we respond to our children in each moment. In those moments we need two things: the ability to regulate our stress response, and the ability to communicate to connect lovingly and effectively. Mindful Parenting teaches a process of intentionally bringing non-judgmental awareness to each moment, and cultivating loving speech, listening and problem resolution for more ease and joy in parenting.

This 8-week course will run on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm. It will include mindfulness practices, readings, some writing, discussion, and (of course) practice. Course fee includes two books.
