As parents, our busy lives keep us in a very high-speed gear, resulting in missed opportunties for family connection and growth. Discover first-hand how Mindful Awareness can transform your home by interrupting the "auto-pilot cycle", creating opportunity for prescence and deep connection. As part of this 4-week series, receive mindfulness exercises and suggested activities to practice both individually and with your children/teens. Parents are encouraged to register for the entire series, however, individual workshop sign-ups are also available. A private Zoom link will be provided prior to the session.
Week 1 - Mindfulness of Self: Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard in this first session on a four week journey to develop mindfulness in both your personal and family life. Discover what Mindfulness is, ways to cultivate Mindfulness, and stategies for consistency.
Week 2 - Relational Dynamics:The roles we play both personally and professionally can keep us on auto-pilot knocking down the never-ending to-do list, preventing us from being "present" with the people we love the most. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the habitual ways we react in interpersonal relationships and learn how to be more present with others for more gratifying relationships.
Week 3 - Family Formation: What is the family life you wish to have? While family values and practices are easier to achieve when children are young, it's never too late to make your dreams come alive. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the gap between "dream" and "reality" and take small steps toward positive change, allowing for greater prescence and cohesiveness in your home.
Week 4 - Family Growth: Providing children/teens the opportunity for self-expression/discovery is crucial which is deeply affected by family life and social influences. As we cultivate compassion for ourselves, we see others in a more compassionate way, leading to increased acceptance/understanding for those we love. Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard to discover how the practice of compassion and mindfulness bring insight/a loving prescence to your family life creating opportunity for children to be their "authentic self".

Week 1 - Mindfulness of Self: Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard in this first session on a four week journey to develop mindfulness in both your personal and family life. Discover what Mindfulness is, ways to cultivate Mindfulness, and stategies for consistency.
Week 2 - Relational Dynamics:The roles we play both personally and professionally can keep us on auto-pilot knocking down the never-ending to-do list, preventing us from being "present" with the people we love the most. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the habitual ways we react in interpersonal relationships and learn how to be more present with others for more gratifying relationships.
Week 3 - Family Formation: What is the family life you wish to have? While family values and practices are easier to achieve when children are young, it's never too late to make your dreams come alive. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the gap between "dream" and "reality" and take small steps toward positive change, allowing for greater prescence and cohesiveness in your home.
Week 4 - Family Growth: Providing children/teens the opportunity for self-expression/discovery is crucial which is deeply affected by family life and social influences. As we cultivate compassion for ourselves, we see others in a more compassionate way, leading to increased acceptance/understanding for those we love. Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard to discover how the practice of compassion and mindfulness bring insight/a loving prescence to your family life creating opportunity for children to be their "authentic self".

As parents, our busy lives keep us in a very high-speed gear, resulting in missed opportunties for family connection and growth. Discover first-hand how Mindful Awareness can transform your home by interrupting the "auto-pilot cycle", creating opportunity for prescence and deep connection. As part of this 4-week series, receive mindfulness exercises and suggested activities to practice both individually and with your children/teens. Parents are encouraged to register for the entire series, however, individual workshop sign-ups are also available. A private Zoom link will be provided prior to the session.
Week 1 - Mindfulness of Self: Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard in this first session on a four week journey to develop mindfulness in both your personal and family life. Discover what Mindfulness is, ways to cultivate Mindfulness, and stategies for consistency.
Week 2 - Relational Dynamics:The roles we play both personally and professionally can keep us on auto-pilot knocking down the never-ending to-do list, preventing us from being "present" with the people we love the most. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the habitual ways we react in interpersonal relationships and learn how to be more present with others for more gratifying relationships.
Week 3 - Family Formation: What is the family life you wish to have? While family values and practices are easier to achieve when children are young, it's never too late to make your dreams come alive. Led by Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard, explore the gap between "dream" and "reality" and take small steps toward positive change, allowing for greater prescence and cohesiveness in your home.
Week 4 - Family Growth: Providing children/teens the opportunity for self-expression/discovery is crucial which is deeply affected by family life and social influences. As we cultivate compassion for ourselves, we see others in a more compassionate way, leading to increased acceptance/understanding for those we love. Join Meditation Instructor Patricia Howard to discover how the practice of compassion and mindfulness bring insight/a loving prescence to your family life creating opportunity for children to be their "authentic self".
