First Parent Talk: Thursday, Nov. 1

Topic- Awakening the Parent

As parents, we want our children to grow up to be strong, resilient, loving and healthy. We wish truth, beauty and goodness to befall them.
We also hope they will have the strength and courage as well as wonder and reverence to meet what life brings their way. In our times, we are asked to consciously carry these ideals and qualities into our parenting. We can set intentions and resolve to bring what our children need when they need it. We can actively work to provide them with a sound basis into the future. In this workshop, we will learn about the developing child, explore our personal experiences through biographical exercises and art processes and find means of support for the parenting journey ahead.

The talk will take place from 6-8pm. (refreshments and childcare provided!)
