We hear the phrase “self-care” in a lot of different professional and social circles these days. Parenting a child with learning differences requires lots of time, extra support, advocacy, and patience. As I sat listening to Student-Led Conferences, I contemplated all the hard work that not only our students do, but also their parents. I started to wonder, “What are Edison parents doing for self-care?”
Mindfulness for Parents
December 4, 1-5pm
The Little Church
5138 NE 23rd Ave Portland, OR
$25/$35 sliding scale
Most of us are often so busy taking care of others that we plow through our day-to-day lives without considering our own moment-to-moment experience, especially during the holiday season. In this workshop, we will explore ways of discovering balance, center, and our innate ability to love ourselves and others wholeheartedly. Through awareness practice, we will cultivate skills that can deepen our experience of presence and help us tune into connection, even in the midst of our busy lives.
“Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
