A mindful approach to parenting can be that pie in the sky, the thing you reach for while juggling dinner, work, sibling rivalry, and carpool schedules. Beginning October 17th, parents can get a little help with that.

Mindful Creative Parenting is a 3-session workshop series that combines meditation techniques, Simplicity Parenting© principles, hands-on creative arts activities, supportive dialogue, and practical strategies to bring home.  It's part of a broad range of new community programs that are coming to life this fall at the Wellness Embodied Education Annex, an arm of Wellness Embodied: A Center for Psychotherapy and Healing in New Paltz. “This series will help parents identify and transform areas where their daily family life is not feeling aligned with their deepest values,” explains co-facilitator Meredith Johnson, who is a Body-centered Psychotherapist and Simplicity Parenting© Coach at Wellness Embodied. 

Over the arc of the 3-sessions, participants work to progressively strengthen the family nest and reclaim the joys of family life. Building on their children’s and their own unique strengths, they’ll learn strategies that improve stress regulation and cultivate rewarding, resilient family relationships. Co-facilitator and Licensed Creative Arts Therapist Linda Emran will introduce and lead sensory-rich, mixed-media art materials and activities that are tailored to support the inquiry process. 

Registration is now open for this workshop and other mindfulness classes and therapeutic groups being offered this fall at the Wellness Embodied Education Annex, like Bringing Mindfulness Into the Classroom and Mindfulness Toolbox for Teens.  

Mindful Creative Parenting at Wellness Embodied, 126 Main Street Suite A in New Paltz: Tuesdays Oct 18th, Nov 1st, & Nov 15th; 7-8:30pm; $150, includes all supplies. Learn more at their website.
