Zen of Parenting Group


Zen of Parenting Group

This group organized by parents, and is intended to support and inform those who work with children (including adult children) as parents, grandparents, teachers, or caregivers. It is an opportunity to come together to learn how to apply Zen practice in relating with children (our own and others), and to better understand how to introduce mindfulness for the support of children of all ages. How do we both practice and share Zen practice and teachings in our role as parents and teachers?

The group is also an opportunity for fun outings with our children. 

Meeting dates will change as the group determines them. Please email the group using the link to the right if you have questions.

Appamada is not just the occasional mindful thought or attentive state of mind, it’s actually a commitment to being attentive. It’s more than just a meditative state of mind, it’s more than just being mindful. It has to do with that primary ethical or moral orientation we have in life, with which we bring into being whatever activity we’re engaged in. Whether in formal meditation, in our interactions with other people, in our social concerns, or in our political choices, it’s the energetic cherishing of what we regard as good.

—Stephen Batchelor
