Parenting by its very nature is both beautiful and challenging. Some of the deepest challenges in parenting come from within our own minds and hearts as we navigate the constant change, uncertainty, and activating of our own childhood traumas. This four-part offering aims to be a safe space for parents to meditate, rest, share from the heart, and learn practical mindfulness and self-compassion practices to support their lives as people and as parents.

The Somatics of Thought and Emotion: Working With the Mind and Heart Through the Body

12 CE Credits. The body feels before the mind thinks. Embodiment allows us to sense thoughts and emotions as they are arising, before they captivate the heart. With this awareness is a sensitivity to attachment and aversion (upādāna) as bodily sensations, which allows us to respond rather than react. By balancing the nervous system, lightly controlling the breath, and practicing kind awareness, we lessen the conditions of anxiety and fear, and enjoy states of ease and openness as our natural state of being.

Wise Livelihood for the BIPOC Community

Open to all self-identified BIPOC. As we gather in beloved community, we will meditate, rejoice, relate, and explore the Buddhist teachings of wise livelihood and how we can apply these teachings to the act of living fully with peace, abundance, and freedom. Wise livelihood is one of the factors of the Noble Eightfold Path, and these teachings can profoundly transform our lives and the ways we relate to our work, ourselves, our interpersonal relationships, and to the world at large.
