Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the world-leading scientist, researcher and meditation teacher who brought mindfulness to mainstream society. His internationally best-selling books include Wherever You Go, There You Are, Full Catastrophe Living and Everyday Blessings, co-authored with his wife, Myla.
This inspiring talk is designed for parents, grandparents, and parents-to-be, as well as anyone working with or caring for children. Parenting with mindfulness can enhance the wellbeing of children and parents alike, and bring greater empathy, acceptance and respect for each child’s unique being into family life.
In difficult moments, we can sometimes find ourselves reacting automatically, in the grip of deeply engrained and often destructive patterns of thinking and feeling that may stem in part from our own experiences as children.
Through the intentional cultivation of mindfulness, which can be thought of as an open-hearted non-judgmental awareness, it is possible to navigate the inner landscape of our own fears and judgments, and choose more appropriate and positive ways of responding effectively in challenging situations with our children or teens.
Using guided meditations and simple practices, Myla and Jon will explore how the cultivation of mindfulness in daily life can help us to tackle the struggles we may face and be more present for the joys and simple pleasures that are inherent in parenting and family life.
This is a rare visit to the Northwest for the Kabat-Zinns. We are honored that they will kick off ParentMap's 10th anniversary year.
Community of Mindful Parents, a local organization dedicated to empowering parents to become more effective, mindful and compassionate is excited to partner with ParentMap to share this opportunity to learn more from the experts about mindful parenting.
