Mindful Parenting Spring 2020

Mondays from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. beginning March 30th

This popular class is open to parents, grandparents and caregivers in the Nashville community. Whether your child is small or close to heading out into the world, we have found deep value in creating a mindful parenting community through this six week format. There is a weekly opportunity to gather on Wednesday mornings with other parents at USN once you've completed the class. Join us! Register here

Three week Mindful Parenting Series      Spring 2020
Wednesdays 6 to 8 p.m. starting April 1st
($125 for the full three week series)

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

“In difficult times carry something beautiful in your heart."  Blaise Pascal

 "Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind."

                                  ~   Lionel Hampton

Join us for an evening of heart opening practices and activities. When we make time to open our hearts, we can allow for more connection and magic to unfold in our lives.

Facilitators Mary Agee and Ashiya Swan

"We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves."    ~ Andy Goldsworthy


Unplug, walk the labyrinth at Scarritt Bennett (weather permitting), and make time to reconnect with your inner resources through nature.  If Mother Nature has other plans, we will imagine our connections with outdoor spaces from a warm safe space inside. Research shows that our brains are activated in the same way whether we are having or imagining an experience.

Please join us for an evening of journaling, creative exploration and mindfulness practices in an outdoor setting if the weather permits...or safe and dry inside.

Facilitators Mary Agee and Ashiya Swan

Class not available; please check back in the fall!
