Mindful Parenting Group

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change” — Carl Rogers

This simple and sometimes challenging paradox applies to our relationship with ourselves first and then to the beings with whom we are creating relationships with. From this place of acceptance inside ourselves, we can discover the tools to relate to our children during a hysterical (and embarassing) toddler meltdown at the mall to any variety of teenage shenanigans, often which have us questioning ourselves, our capability, and our sanity.

If this is you, join us for our monthly Mindful Parenting conference call.

Build community

Get support, get grounded, get some new tools

Remember what you already know

Laugh

The group meets once a month for an hour-long call guided by Wendy Meyer, a longtime student of Deborah Eden Tull. Wendy is an experienced facilitator, a teacher at one of the oldest humanistic schools in the country, Play Mountain Place, and a parent of two teenage sons.

One topic of focus will be covered in each four-month session. Giving four months to a topic allows for:

  1. Introduction to a topic.
  2. Time for practice.
  3. Follow-up, process and more practice.

There will be handouts, assignments and opportunities to play. You can do as much or as little as you like. Sessions will be dynamic and created based on the needs and interests of the group.

The first session will be on the topic of listening, as it’s the basis for pretty much everything. It will include listening from a mindfulness perspective as well as listening tools like play listening, stay listening and reflective listening—terms coined by Hand in Hand Parenting and expanded to include a mindfulness approach as well as my own experience in humanistic education.

Meeting time: Sundays at 1:00pm PST.

The dates for the beginning of 2018 are as follows: February 4th, March 4th, April 8th & May 6th.

Cost: $108 per person or $162 per couple for all 4 months.. RSVP (via PayPal) at least 2 days in advance required.

Please email Wendy at wendymeyerwriter [at] gmail.com for more information.
