Mindfulness for All Mindful Parenting

Each month, we gather in mindfulness, to develop and deepen our own well-being practice, so that we can live our lives from a place of equanimity, non-reactivity and calm. The foundation of our practice is based on four core concepts: gentleness, non-violence, compassion and mindfulness. Each session starts with simple clearing, centring and grounding exercises, a moment of inspirational poetry, followed by different artistic or meditation activities that help you to discover, release, or heal and restore. This is an interactive and experiential session where participation and questions are welcomed. Participants often leave with greater clarity and understanding.

 

July 2022

 

For July, the theme is on mindful parenting. We take inspiration from Kahlil Gibran's perspective on parenting: that we the parents are the bows from which our children are the arrows that are sent forth from. We start by setting ourselves up with an open mind frame and emotional balance. We then take time to see our children for whom they are, where they are, right now, and align our parenting intentions to meet their needs. Together, in a non-judgemental environment, we set aside time and space to reflect on our personal style of parenting. Parents often leave with greater clarity, understanding and a few action items going forward to create a better relationship with their children.  

About Bhakti Wong

 

Bhakti Wong is a somatic therapist, yoga and mindfulness teacher.  

 

In 2002, Bhakti discovered yoga as a way for her to stay fit amidst her frequent-flyer corporate career. Eventually, this was not enough and she began pursuing the study of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. Since 2004, Bhakti has worked to educate and empower thousands to find inner alignment through guided mindfulness exercises that change behaviours that cause anxiety, confusion and pain.

 

Bhakti highlights the deeply intertwined system of the body, mind and emotions. This is somatic, the mind-body-connection: to bring to light the conscious and subconscious parts of ourselves, so we can make choices with more discernment. In her sessions, she integrates anatomical, psychological and spiritual techniques, with a focus on four core concepts: gentleness, non-violence, compassion and mindfulness, and the foundations of the Hakomi method of somatic psychotherapy.
