Introduction to Mindfulness and Mindful Parenting
Mindfulness is defined as the “state of being attentive to and aware of what is taking place in the present.” It is thought that mindfulness assists in allowing shifts in one’s relationship to internal experiences; fear, anger, or sadness for example. Increases in emotional equanimity in the face of intrusive thoughts, distressing emotions and behavioral impulses are therefore thought to result from greater mindfulness. This talk will provide an overview of mindfulness as a daily practice with a specific focus on use of mindful parenting techniques.
