Accepting What Is
With Emma Steenson | October 1, 8, 22, 29 (no class 15 Oct) | £20
Anxiety and stress can arise simply from not accepting things as they are. When things go wrong and there is nothing we can do about it then a mind of acceptance brings peace and calm. With this calm and patient mind we are more able to handle any situation without becoming stressed.
The Power of Love
With Emma Steenson | December 3, 10, 17 | £15
No matter how much we care for our kids sometimes things get on top of us and we can react to stressful situations in ways we later regret. Keeping our heart open with the mind of love allows us to remain caring and considerate even in the most difficult of circumstances.
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 mindfulness and 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 mindfulness or 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.
