Introduction to Mindfulness

An 8-week in-person course

Mindfulness is simply the act of being in the present moment no matter what internal or external experience arises.

While there can be many benefits to learning mindfulness, the benefits are simply byproducts. There are no goals in being mindful and there is nothing to achieve. However, the benefits that can occur may include:

Why Introduction to Mindfulness?

Being more present and grounded
Being better able to respond instead of react to stressors
Feeling less personally impacted by the day-to-day grind
Having enriched relationships with ourselves and others
Experiencing more choice in where we place our attention

Learn techniques for tuning into your senses and your environment in a rich and meaningful way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

The Village Parenting Mindfulness Course meets for 60 minutes once a week for eight weeks.

The first 15 minutes of each session focus on a technique or topic for that week, followed by a talk on how this applies to parenting and/or other aspects of our everyday lives.

The remainder of the hour is a chance to engage in (or just listen to!) group discussion about how that week’s content can impact our daily lives.

Where do courses take place?

Online courses are delivered via Zoom. For in-person courses, you can host in your home or I will hold the course at a local venue.

How do I get started?

A course requires a minimum of three people. Contact me as an individual and I will let you know when I have enough participants from your area to start a group, or contact me as a group of three or more and we will get started!
