Parent Mindfulness Group

The Campbell Hall Parent Mindfulness Group invites all parents and guardians to a series of morning sessions to deepen or begin a mindfulness practice. Sessions begin with a guided meditation followed by instruction on topics such as authentic parenting, connecting more deeply with our kids, the development of meditative skills for managing stress and reactivity, connecting and communicating more effectively with our kids, maintaining a daily practice, etc., all while building community with fellow parents. Led by Laurie Cousins, a highly experienced teacher in mindfulness and parent education, the series are free of charge. Guest speakers include Catherine Siphron-Singer and Patrick Sweeney*.

List of 2 items.

  • Meditation Guide

    We come together weekly from 8:45-10:00 am on Tuesday mornings to meditate together and create real and lasting connections with others. It’s a beautiful way to build community and new friendships, as well as, develop a healthy routine. To optimize the experience, it’s best to arrive a few minutes before the opening meditation begins. If you arrive during meditation, feel free to use the seats near the door. Latecomers will be invited into the group after the first practice concludes. Our time together is precious and sacred and everything shared is confidential. Please do your best to remain with us the whole time. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
