This 4 session series of classes will be utilizing the concepts from the book “Growing Up Again: Parenting Ourselves, Parenting Our Children” by Jean Illsley Clarke and Connie Dawson. Most of us did not get Parenting 101 in any of our formal education. We learned from our own experiences of being parented, some of which were good and some not so good. As we look at how we were parented, what worked and what didn’t, we will discover roadmaps to help guide us to provide healthy emotional nurturing and connection as well as necessary structure and boundaries with our children. We will be exploring the book’s two primary ingredients for what I define as Mindful Parenting, which are Nurture and Structure. Participants will be expected to purchase the book (used on Amazon starting at $2.97/ new around $12), read chapters and do the exercises at the end of each chapter. The classes will consist of some lecture, writing exercises and group sharing.  Receipts available for HSA reimbursements.

Writing allows our emotions, and struggles to surface and come to light.  Often we suppress our feelings, burying them under busy work, where they fester. Suppression is toxic, expression is healing. In this creative writing workshop, we will compose poems, prose, and quotes, both communally, and individually, to heal and inspire. A journal and pen will be included for each attendee.
