Mindfulness for Parents
October 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until October 28, 2019
Raising children in the 21st century is not from the faint of heart! With societal anxiety added to the challenges of helping our children thrive, parents need as man tools as possible to deal with stress in skillful ways. Mindfulness can be one of those tools. The Nora School is a certified “Mindful School” and is part of the “Mindfulness In Schools Project.” Research from Oxford University, UCLA, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and many other leading universities has shown the efficacy of a mindfulness practice in reducing stress, calming anxiety, reducing depression, and generally allowing more skillful responses to life’s difficulties. All Nora students graduate having participated in our secular mindfulness curriculum, which is also offered yearly to parents of Nora students and adults in the community. Head of School Dave Mullen has studied under Dr. Ron Seigel of the Harvard University Medical School and Stan Eisenstein of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, and has completed training programs with Mindful Schools and the Mindfulness in Schools Project. The parent sessions follow the classes are taught to all Nora students, with specific focus on the challenges that parents face.
