This week's blogger is local potter and BMS Yoga and P.E. teacher, Sarah McCarthy.
Blue Mountain School is starting a new session of our Parent Meditation Group. We'd love to see you there! The group will meet once a week for an hour at BMS (days and times to be determined with your input). The meeting will begin with around 10-15 minutes of silent meditation. Then we will have time to share and reflect about our parenting experiences together. The parents who participated in the past shared that they enjoyed slowing down and being quiet together. Some enjoyed sharing their experiences with the group, while others just listened. I really enjoyed the group meditation.
During the last session, we discussed Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn’ s book, Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting, which is a really great book that shares some honest stories about parenting and presents some helpful techniques when times get hard. This year, we will continue exploring parenting literature, either another book or selected articles. It’s okay to come if you haven’t read the material for the week. We usually read some inspiring paragraphs from the readings out loud, and a sweet discussion usually follows.
I am open to ideas and suggestions for what kind of parent group you are interested in and would want to come to. We would love to start a group that really enjoys taking this time together to grow and become more in-touch and conscious parents. Is there a good time/day that works for you? Do you need childcare? Do you have any other ideas and wishes to make this an inspiring and amazing time for all? Please let me know!
Conscious parenting takes work and dedication, and we all know it isn’t easy. I got so much benefit from our group in the past and really enjoyed getting to know the parents better. Just coming together and slowing down can do wonders for us. Come join us! All are welcome!
Please let me know if you are interested, and I will let you know when the start dates will be! My number is 250-8361 or email@example.com.
