To build the resilience and compassion we need to parent calmly in a world on fire, we need to take time out to breathe, connect, and nourish ourselves.
Parenthood can be wonderful. It can also be lonely, exhausting and overwhelming. Even more so when we’re feeling anxious about the state of the wider world. Feeling overwhelmed isn’t a sign that we’re not doing enough – its our internal cue to pause.
It’s also a vital reminder to look after ourselves – even and especially when that feels impossible. Tending to our own needs is vital for our own growth. It gives us the strength we need to tend to those we love – and to the planet.
In this workshop, you’ll explore simple tools to use in the face of overwhelm:
• mindfulness practices
• self compassion practices
• deepening your connection to nature
• taking imperfect action
You’ll identify one achievable change that you can make to your daily routine to increase your capacity to parent with greater peace and confidence. Boosting your ability to enact change within yourself – and thus, in the world around you.
Pippa Best is the founder of Sea Soul Blessings, creating simple transformative tools that combine mindfulness, self compassion and nature – and investing directly in environmental projects. Since 2011, Pippa has run Story of Mum, a social enterprise that supports mothers via coaching, workshops and retreats. For over 20 years, she has also worked as a film script editor. Three apparently diverse passions, but all connected by her deep faith in our capacity to rewrite the unhelpful stories we tell ourselves – so that we can live with greater purpose, confidence and joy.
