Event description

Description

Ivy Child, in partnership with the Center for Parents and Teachers, is hosting a series of 8 mindfulness workshops for parents, teachers, and caregivers in Concord-Carlisle and surrounding areas (the program includes 3 workshops in Fall 2019, 2 in the Winter, and 3 in Spring 2020).

The goals of the program are to:

  • Educate caregivers on the benefits of mindfulness as a way to help reduce and manage stress and anxiety, improve wellness, strengthen relationships and connectivity, and build healthy habits

  • Provide mindful strategies and coping tools to support self-care and use with their children/children they serve

  • Enhance community well-being

Sessions will combine (but are not limited to) mindful movement with guided meditation, breathing exercises, partner/group activities and discussion, and other mindfulness exercises. Classes will provide a safe, open, and interactive environment for self-reflection and engagement with other caregivers.
