A workshop on meditation, tools, and resources to cultivate a mindful parenting practice.
Shannon Salentine is a parent, leadership coach, and global program director. Over the last five years Shannon and her husband have been cultivating a spiritual practice for their family that is aligned with their values, the developmental stages of their children, and what feels right. In this effort, Shannon’s family discovered a community of parents dedicated to practicing mindfulness. Through this community and her own self-immersion, Shannon developed a strong appreciation for the tools mindfulness offers parents and a practice that serves her daily.
Join Shannon as she shares how meditation and various mindfulness resources have helped her as a parent. During the workshop we’ll talk (and practice) mediation and discuss the integration of mindfulness into family life. You’ll come away from this workshop with examples of mindfulness tools and some practice in using them!
