Three week Mindful Parenting Series      Spring 2020
Wednesdays 6 to 8 p.m. starting April 1st
($125 for the full three week series)
Facilitators Paloma Cain* and Mary Agee

This slightly different offering is in response to requests for an evening option. Six evenings sounded like too much to take on, and we know how powerful a group experience can be so we are excited to offer this series.


Raising children comes with unique challenges and joys. Together we’ll explore how it feels to approach these experiences through a mindful lens, with open-hearted curiosity and compassion towards our children and ourselves. While mindfulness isn’t a cure-all, most people find that with regular practice they become more present in their lives and more consistently able to find some peace and well-being amidst the chaos that can be modern family life. Come join us! Register here
