Practice as Parenting: cultivating resources for sustained engagment in a challenging world

4 Wed. evenings from 6-7:30pm
Every other week:
April 18, May 2, 16 and 30
Stone Creek Zen Center in Graton

As parents we tend to the world both through the microcosm of the needs of our families, and through outward engagement in the communities around us. We will explore the relationship between inward and outward practice in parenting, and how to find balance in our lives between them. In this series, we will begin or deepen a meditation practice; and consider teachings from both the Zen tradition and contemporary mindfulness practices that can support us in creating a sustainable way to tend to our lives, families and world. The group will use a “listening circle” model so we can share our stories, our triumphs, challenges and insights on the path of parenting.
No previous meditation experience is required, and drop in is ok throughout the series.

$80 for series/ $20 drop in
member rate: $60 for series/ $15 drop in
sliding rates available if needed
