Mindfulness practice for children: mindful parenting

I am delighted to have come across this community of ‘Secular Buddhism’. I see from the members there are one or two people I already know – and so this is almost a “home coming”.  What a joyous feeling.

‘Feeling’ brings me nicely into the core of my intent around this post…

I invite anyone within the community to feel free to contact me (via email or on this forum) with questions around my support of children and parents in mindful practice and philosophy. I am situated in East Auckland (New Zealand in case our friends close by in Sydney have accessed this post).  I see families in 5 session blocks (2 of these sessions I sit with parents and outline the mindful parenting approach along with some formal practice) and 3 sessions I give ground level mindfulness exercises for children.

I also give workshops and speak to associations about the need for presence in both parenting and for children growing into a richness of feeling based, present moment awareness.

Much of the support I give is for children who come via psychologist referral – there are some very heart centred psychologists in our city, I am pleased to say. I am also associated with the Gifted Children’s Association.

So thanks for your attention. How’s this feel for you?

Kind thoughts,

Mindfulness For Children

    Hi Glenda
    i’ve just caught up with your post after meeting Chris at the meditation meeting in Glenfield yesterday. I’m keen to know more about how you are going about this programme so it would be great to meet at some point.

    Hi Glenda,
    What would be an example of ground level mindfulness exercises for children? I have a very fearful 14 year old.
