Can we learn to stay present and balanced in the midst of continuous change, all while engaging in the bustle and activity of raising a family?

We will explore our everyday lives as a medium to finding greater freedom and ease in ourselves and in our work as parents. Using our capacity for present-moment awareness, we will learn to see through our own conditioned patterns, behaviors, and attachments as parents into the stillness that underlies all experience. To wake up to and abide in our own deepest nature while doing dishes and getting kids to school on time is the work of mindful parenting.
