Mindful Family Communications Workshop





~Does the Holiday Season Bring Extra Stress to Your Life? ~Do you find yourself on AUTOPILOT just going through the motions without feeling connected?      ~Are your kids isolating in their rooms?   

B – R – E – A –T – H – E

 

Give your family the gift of mindfulness this holiday season!

 

Mindfulness is an amazing tool for reflection as well as something we can embrace within our day-to-day communications, including communication with self. This practice creates more effective communication styles while improving self-esteem for teens. Mindful parenting also provides a loving space for parents to work on more effective ways to get their point across.

 

·         Mindful Family Communications will utilize the beginning of the holiday season to address holiday stress and emotional triggers that affect family communication throughout the holidays.

 

·         We will explore mindfulness as a general topic for self-exploration and provide tools and communication strategies to help parents and teens cope with school, work, life and stress.

 

·         By the end of this workshop both parents and teens will begin to be able to identify emotional triggers, re-center their awareness and re-frame communications and language in less demanding or reactionary ways.
