Please join us for an interactive workshop on how to bring mindfulness into your home. You will learn practices to help with the challenges of parenting and valuable techniques to implement into your family's daily life.
Mindful Parenting can help parents manage stress, better care for their own well-being, and nurture the parent-child connection.
