Mindful Parents Raise Mindful Kids




Chrysalis Institute is hosting the East Coast’s first conference on mindful parenting from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., June 25, on the Collegiate School campus. This inaugural event will feature keynote speakers Kay Davidson and Alex Peavey.

      The conference is geared to both new and experienced mindfulness practitioners that are also parents or playing a big role in a child’s life. Morning breakout sessions focus on different age groups and afternoon breakout sessions will highlight concrete tools to use with kids to have happier, healthier relationships. Lectures and workshops will offer substantive, evidence-based practices that parents can implement immediately.

      Topics include mindfulness with infants; mindfulness with children; mindfulness with tweens and teens; journaling as a mindfulness practice; conflict exercise for families; movement as mindfulness practice; and parent self-care/unpacking your stuff.

Cost: sliding scale $50-$100. Location: 103 N. Mooreland Rd. Register at ChrysalisInstitute.org.
