Parenting is hard. That's why mindfulness and self-compassion are so important. In this 4-week online course based on Susan Pollak's Self Compassion for Parents workbook, mother of two and trained Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) Teacher Aimee Eckhardt will guide you through simple concepts and practices designed to help you let go of constant self-judgment and treat yourself with the same kindness and caring you hold in your heart for your children. This course offers a safe place for parents, who are often isolated and feeling alone in their struggles, to connect and support one other in the practice of mindful parenting and self-compassion. Learn to respond to your own imperfections like a supportive friend rather than a harsh critic. You may find yourself feeling happier and more energized, discovering new reserves of patience and appreciation for your children.

Participants will receive the following resources designed to fit into the busy life of parents:
  • Weekly practice and study suggestions to help structure your learning and practice
  • Guidance in simple, yet powerful meditation techniques (most under three minutes long) that can be practiced in everyday life
  • Membership in a dedicated online community to support ongoing personal practice and continued connection between meetings
When: Tuesdays in September: Sept. 3, 10, 17, 24 from 10-11:30 a.m. (deadline to enroll is one week prior to the start of the course)
