Thursday September 3rd, 7:00pm: Mindful at Home - Why Mindfulness Matters. Worlds are really colliding at the moment - family, school, work - all in our homes. The question is how to deal with this in a mindful way. We find ourselves at a moment where the world has asked us to stop, reflect, and reassess our priorities, habits, and trajectories. While it can be painful to recalibrate ourselves in this new reality, it can also be profoundly transformative. Mindfulness techniques are designed precisely for a moment like this. Join us for an evening with Debra Danilewitz, as she provides practical parenting strategies to bring out the best in you and your children. Discover how to turn the emotional stressors of this time into strength that you carry forward into navigating what is next. Debra will share insights to help develop self-awareness and mental stability for you and your family. She hopes to empower you as parents to conduct yourselves in a resilient and mindful way that is ultimately beneficial to all those around you. Register here.
