Mindful Family: Building resilience, happiness and compassion (with less effort and stress)
May 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
For the first time together, join clinicians, mindfulness experts, authors, and parents Drs Mark Bertin, Christopher Willard and Susan Kaiser Greenland for an evening of mindfulness, compassion and self-compassion and practical parenting advice. We will explore the interpersonal neurobiology of emotions and the research behind healthy and positive emotional “contagions” spreading within families. We will also emphasize practical applications of awareness, compassion and self-compassion, and techniques to quiet the inner critic both in our children and in ourselves.
If like many of us you have said to yourself “I’m the worst parent in the world” – well, you are not alone. And of course, you’re not the worst parent ever either. In fact, you only need to be “good enough” for your children to thrive. Practicing self-compassion and other tools we’ll explore in the hands-on talk will help you develop the wisdom and clarity to figure out exactly what that means for your family.
