Mindful Parenting I: Awakening Through the Journey of Parenthood
About This Event
This four-week introductory course explores the practice of mindfulness with a particular focus on parenting. It is the first in a two-part series on mindful parenting and appropriate for any caregiver of any age child.
The intention of this series is to help parents develop a strong understanding of mindfulness, the importance of living with intention, the role of perception and how to apply the attitudinal foundations of mindfulness to parenting. We will:
Discover how the parental relationship is fertile ground for present moment awareness and personal growth
Build an awareness of personal triggers and how to respond to our children instead of react
Uncover common unconscious, false beliefs and hidden agendas that are not serving our highest intention
Discover how to build authentic connections with our children while providing containment and boundaries when appropriate.
Recommended Reading: “The Conscious Parent” by Dr. Shefali Tsabary. While we recommend taking Mindful Parenting I and II in order, participants with a developed mindfulness practice are welcome to take the classes out of sequence if necessary for scheduling reasons.
Tuition is $190 for each class or $340 for both ($40 discount).

The Living Fully with Fear course with Amanda Votto was an incredible experience. I was able to connect with my emotions, dig deep and find what was underneath those emotions, and find comfort within myself and from the shared experiences of the others in the class. I found the practices to be extremely helpful and at times challenging (in a good way). And overall, Amanda did a great job of putting everything into context and explaining how we can relate to fear and tap into a more compassionate part of ourselves. I do wish it had been longer than four weeks. It was a lot of material to cover, and there was a lot to explore and work through. Perhaps Copper Beech might consider extending these online courses to be six or eight week experiences. Even so, I am truly grateful for the opportunity and for all that I gained from this class. Thank you to Amanda and to Copper Beech!

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
