Mindfulness Workshops for Parents, Teachers and Caregivers
Ivy Child, in partnership with the Center for Parents and Teachers, welcomes all parents, educators and other caregivers in the Concord-Carlisle and surrounding areas to take part in a series of eight, free, 90-minute mindfulness workshops. The first will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m., December 11, at the Concord-Carlisle High School.
These workshops have been customized to address the needs and challenges of attendees. Caregivers will learn practical mindfulness tools and skills to enhance their well-being and to benefit their own children and/or the youth they serve. Workshops will address topics such as self-care, stress and anxiety, mindful communication, mindfulness and technology, mindful eating and other themes relevant for the community.
Sessions will combine (but are not limited to) mindful movement with guided meditation, breathing exercises, partner/group activities and discussion and other mindfulness exercises. Classes will provide a safe, open and interactive environment for self-reflection and engagement with other caregivers. Attendees will also receive online and printable mindfulness resources and tangible tools for use at home, on-the-go or at work that can be used to support children and youth as well.
Cost: Free and open to the public. Location: 500 Walden St., Concord. For more information, call 617-279-2444 x2. Pre-register at Tinyurl.com/MindfulnessForCaregiver
