Keeping Your Cool, Dealing with Stress
April 1, 8, 29 | £15
It’s not easy keeping it together when the pressure of parenting gets on top of us. When tots are challenging that’s exactly when we need to be able to keep our cool. In this series of classes we will explore how Buddha’s teachings and meditations can help us increase our ability to stay calm and wise. When our mind is peaceful we can easily stay patient and find a good way forward with our little ones!
3, 10, 17, 24 June | £20
In the midst of a busy family and modern life it can feel like one distraction after another as we are exposed to a constant stream of noise, information and demands on our time. Not only can this make it difficult to relax but this also makes it hard to prioritise our time, to enjoy our work as well as our family life and to be able to give our full attention to our children and in our relationships. Learn practical meditation techniques to stay clear, focused and calm – this will help you to prioritise, keep things in perspective and focus in on what is really important to you!
About Parents & Tots Meditation Classes
Healthy families depend upon healthy parenting. To be a good parent involves juggling endless stresses and demands, keeping a healthy perspective, and being an effective role model for our children.
Our Parents and Tots class includes simple, practical and effective meditation methods perfect for busy parents and guardians that address the real-world challenges of parents in our busy world.
The class structure principally focuses on teaching adults, while children play with age-appropriate toys in the peaceful, inspiring setting of the temple. Families are welcome to stay after class for tea and chat.
No previous experience of meditation is necessary, and no special clothing is required – just come as you are.
This class is intended specifically for parents and guardians with children aged 0-4 years old; if you have a child 5-11 years old, please book to attend our Kids Club class on Sunday afternoons instead.
Please note although we have assistants to help with the class we cannot provide child care.
