Mindfulness for Mums

A 4-week course for cultivating greater calm, connection and compassion

As mothers, we all want to feel less busy and distracted and more calm in stressful situations. We all share a natural desire to feel more genuine connection, compassion and gratitude. Often the busyness of life makes these things feel just out of our reach. This can lead to feelings of guilt and frustration, and us wondering if we are a good mother.

Regardless of your life circumstances, family composition or the age of your children, bringing a mindful attitude to your role as a mother will benefit you and your family.

Join us for a nurturing yet practical mindfulness course designed to address the challenges of being a present mum in this busy world of ours. You will learn to relax your body and mind, to respond rather than react in challenging situations and also how to really take care of yourself through your biggest journey of all, motherhood.

Week One: Understanding mindfulness and meditation in the context of motherhood
Week Two: Motherhood and stress, understanding your triggers and learning to respond rather than react
Week Three: Cultivating self compassion and connection, exploring how these inner resources increase well-being and happiness
Week Four: Growing gratitude within you and your family. During this final session we will also explore ways you may bring mindfulness into your family life. 

After completing this course, participants will receive access to the Harvesting Happiness online Modern Mindfulness for Mothers course through weekly meditations delivered straight to your inbox. 

Course date/time: Tuesdays 7pm-9pm (x 4 weeks commencing 17th July)

Investment: $275

Bookings: Either directly via MINDBODY or book here (search for date Tuesday 17th July)

Cultivating Connection
Aug

10:00 AM10:00

Cultivating Connection

We all yearn for greater connection. Whether it be a desire to understand ourselves a little more, a longing for more meaningful relationships, or a need to feel connected to something larger than ourselves. Often the busyness of life makes experiencing this connection feel just out of our reach. We get caught up in the flow of doing, reacting, working our way through endless tasks that the end of the day arrives, and there has been little time for cultivating feelings of connection within ourselves, with others and the world in which we live.

During this morning event we will take pause from our busy lives, and really create a space for feelings of connection to grow within us. We will reconnect with ourselves through a focus on our breath and heart. We shall hold our relationships in our minds eye and offer them the attention they need to grow and flourish. We shall also connect to something larger than ourselves.

Participants will also leave this session with some practical tools for cultivating greater connection in their daily lives.

Course Date: Sunday 5th August 10am - 12pm

Investment: $50

Bookings: Either directly via MINDBODY or book here (search for date 5th August)

Cultivating Compassion

Cultivating Compassion

As life pulls us in all different directions, we often find ourselves becoming self-critical and judgemental of others and certain situations in our lives. That critical voice inside our head becomes louder and more pronounced. We find ourselves wishing that in some way, our relationships and our lives were different to what they actually are. This sense of wanting, wishing, striving for something different can leave us feeling a sense of unease and discomfort deep within us. In these times of busyness, stress and unease, cultivating compassion for ourselves, those we love and our lives can be a deeply grounding, restorative and supportive practice. It also paves the way for greater acceptance, presence and less judgement.

So if you would like to learn to respond more skilfully to the part of you that is self-critical, and also to cultivate feelings of being on you own side, come and join us for an afternoon of meditation, compassion and reflection. This session will also appeal to those seeking more compassion in their relationships and in their lives more generally.

Letting In, Letting Be, Letting Go.

Letting In, Letting Be, Letting Go.

The pressure of adult life can often lead to us feeling stuck in some way. At times we may feel stuck in a job, a relationship, a situation or in a role we take on. We may feel caught up in cycles of busyness, of self-critical thinking, of worry or regret. These feelings of stagnation can lead us to believe our life choices are limited and that we have little freedom and choice in how we live our lives.

This morning event offers us opportunities to release the grip of the aspects of our lives that lead us to feeling stuck. We shall cultivate a sense of movement within ourselves. And from this movement we shall experience a sense of flow, of lightness, of freedom. We shall do this by focussing on three practices. Letting go, letting be, and letting in. Together, let’s share this experience of movement and freedom, this experience of coming unstuck.

Growing Gratitude

Growing Gratitude

Come and join us for an afternoon of mindfulness, meditation and gratitude for all that we have, and all that we are.

We spend so much of our day caught in cycles of doing and reacting, our awareness focussed on getting through our endless “to do lists”. This way of being not only takes us out of the present moment, it also leaves us feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed.

Cultivating gratitude is an effective antidote to these feelings and sense of overwhelm. Did you know, it’s not possible to feel grateful and stressed at the same time?

Gratitude is a powerful tool for expanding our awareness, relaxing our bodies and minds, tapping into our hearts, and bringing us into the present moment. A regular gratitude practice has the power to shift our outlook on life from one of expectation to appreciation.

During this event we shall use mindfulness and meditation as a gateway to experiencing deep gratitude for ourselves, our relationships and the life that is ours right now. We shall learn to shift our focus from expectation to appreciation and thankfulness. Participants will also leave this session with some practical tools for growing gratitude in their daily lives.

Course Date: Saturday 7th July 3pm - 5pm
