Mindful Mums: A self-compassion and mindfulness skills group to help you take better care of yourself
Being a mother involves so much care taking, but how well are you taking care of yourself? Like they say on the safety orientation video on the plane: you need to put on your oxygen mask before helping your children.
Self-compassion and mindfulness are powerful practices that offer much needed support to those of us navigating the challenges of being a mother. Research shows that self-compassion practices offer protection from the endless internal and external criticism that often accompanies parenting.
In this experiential course you will learn meditations and practices that will help you to become kinder to yourself, to feel more connected to others and to feel more grounded and present in your life, including with your children. Being in a group with other mothers, you will see you are not alone in your imperfections and mistakes and can expect to feel more normal, competent and connected.
