Join Dr. Mark Sherman for this interactive and practical workshop exploring the role of mindfulness in parenting.  During this 6 hour workshop, we will explore:

  • how and why we get triggered by our child's behaviours
  • the stress response through a lens of mindfulness
  • how to transition from our work/life busyness in order to connect with our child(ren)
  • the role of mindful boundaries and consequences.
  • practical 'on the go' tips to bring mindfulness into mealtimes, car rides and conversations
  • how we take care of ourselves even as we take care of our family
  • several meditation skills in order to create a practice of self care and presence

Dr. Mark Sherman is a Keating dad, a mindfulness/meditation teacher, and family physician who teaches mindfulness based stress management.
