Please join Mindfulness Coordinator Mary Agee and Middle School Director of Counseling and Resources Helen Tarleton for a six-week class that explores how to bring more mindful awareness into your parenting and/or your grandparenting. The class runs from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. Mondays in the Gordon Multipurpose Room. Class begins Jan. 28 and ends March 11. There will be no class on Feb. 18 due to Presidents' Day.
A comment from a participant encapsulates what we have found to be a rewarding experience for those who choose to come:
"Of all the mindfully-based stress reduction classes I've taken, I found this one to be the most grounding in large part because we are all parents. That fact alone binds this community in a way that I've never experienced before. Meditation in and of itself is a solitary act and this class moved me out of my head into a welcoming circle of parents. Whether we found inner peace remains to be seen but we now have this class to help guide us and that is warm comfort and support in this chaos we all call life. Thanks again for a lovely experience."
Additional opportunities to practice together continue once you've completed the course.
