A few months ago I started a pilot of an eight-week Mindful Parenting programme in the NHS and I was blown away by the impact it had on those parents. A few weeks ago I was invited by Sarah Thorpe onto her monthly radio show in Doncaster to talk about the course. The interview is on the Sine FM website under Sarah’s show Modern Families if you are interested in hearing more about the mindful parenting course. This week is the follow up session for those parents who completed that first course and I am really looking forward to hearing how they all are and whether their mindfulness practice is still a part of their daily life. I had a meeting yesterday with a second organisation about running the programme in Sheffield in September which is really exciting and hopefully I will have two groups going. Kindness and Compassion is really at the core of the programme but it’s something we often find difficult when it comes to ourselves. Why don’t you take some time each day to do something that nourishes you – it can make all the difference.
