Mondays, 9:30-11 am, April 9-May 14, $150*/6-week series (drop in option available). It's not hard to understand the idea of being both strong and loving, but it can be hard to do it. It can feel like we need to be either firm or warm when we're in the middle of a situation, making it hard for us to set boundaries that will upset our kids or to be connected when a child has done something foolish or selfish. If you have a hard time holding clear boundaries in a warm way, join us for this series! We will practice mindfulness with a special emphasis on integrating focus (clarity, boundaries, firmness) with loving kindness (warmth, forgiveness, friendliness). And there's coffee & tea!
