More joy. More patience. More presence. These are often the things we most desire as individuals – and perhaps even more so as parents. However, when the chaos of day-to-day life enters in, these can also be the goals that feel most out of reach. The good news is that we are not alone, neither in our quest nor in our need for guidance. It is with the unique needs of parents in mind that the Chrysalis Institute has created the Mindfulness Parenting Conference, a one-day workshop designed to teach the value of mindfulness as a guide on our parenting journey.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness, or meditation, is based on an understanding that peace is not a calming of our circumstances, but a calming of our minds. As parents, mindfulness practices allow us to savor more moments, parent with more intention, and experience greater compassion. The result? Reduced stress, more joy, and the ability to truly be present in the beautiful moments that make up the tapestry of our family life.
About the Mindfulness Parenting Conference
The goal of the Mindfulness Parenting Conference is to help parents find the calm and clarity they seek with substantive, evidence-based tools that can be implemented immediately.
This year’s Mindfulness Parenting Conference will be held this Saturday, June 9 at Collegiate School in Richmond. In partnership with the Cameron K. Gallagher (CKG) Foundation, the conference features certified mindfulness practitioners who will facilitate two keynotes, along with 15+ workshops and all-day practice opportunities. See the full schedule of events here.
No experience with meditation or mindfulness is needed and all are welcome, including parents, grandparents, educators, or anyone who plays a vital role in a child’s life.
