Becoming: Nurturing Families
Abiding Heart’s Parents Contemplative Corner
Becoming is Abiding Heart's parents contemplative corner with the aim of nurturing families. We offer curated workshops for parents at each stage of their path of parenthood from birth to age eighteen.
Becoming is about creating a sacred space where parents from all over the world are able to share, learn, meditate and be nourished. Each workshop runs for 6 weeks, meeting once a week where our time together offers parents a short pause from their daily routine to foster a connection to oneself and others as well as provide an opportunity to explore how the parenting journey looks from varying cultural perspectives.
Contemplative traditions rooted in ancient wisdom principles and experiential tools will be woven into exploring various themes relating to parenting. Some of these themes include the Four Immeasurable of loving-kindness and compassion, impermanence, interdependence, and innate basic goodness. Integrated are practices of meditation, contemplation and some contemplative arts.
These sessions aim to find a balance of head, heart and habit in the parenting world by offering useful insights into the Buddhist worldview and meditation.
