Let It Ripple is a 10-session program that allows participants to explore and nurture their own middot (ethical character traits) of humility, patience, trust, loving kindness and so much more. By nurturing these qualities in ourselves, we create ripples of compassion, understanding and respect in the communities and world around us, making a tikkun (a repair) not just within, but also in our broken world.
Do you find yourself constantly running from one activity to the next with hardly a moment to breathe? Do you wish you were more present for and less anxious about your children? Your spouse? Yourself? If so, you may benefit from the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of becoming aware and awake to the world around us. The practice of mindful parenting allows us to be more open and more present, without judgment or fear, to our lives and the lives of our children. Whether the parent of a toddler or teen, Mindful Parenting offers opportunities for study, discussion, meditation and friendship.
