Facilitator: Mary Doane, Panelists: Amanda Coggin, Cassandra Palmer, Eli Brown-Stevenson
At Zen Caregiving Project, our approach to care has been grounded in mindfulness for more than 30 years. We celebrate that mindfulness has become mainstream and is widely recognized as beneficial in practically every aspect of health and well-being.
In this session, we turn towards parenting – a specific type of care relationship that brings unique challenges and joys. All are welcome to join this conversation about how mindfulness practices and parenting intersect. Our panelists will share their experiences of where they find integration, and where doubt creeps in, along with considering whether mindfulness helps you be a better parent and how being a parent affects your mindfulness practices. Join members of our Zen Caregiving Project community who are former hospice volunteers, mindfulness practitioners and now parents to hear how they interweave these foundational life experiences.
This free session will also include the opportunity for comments and a question and answer period along with a brief guided meditation suitable for all levels of experience.
