Mindful Mamas with Marianne Altschul

Dear Millennial Mamas,
Are you feeling exhausted? Stressed? Overwhelmed? Overpowered? Under-resourced? Well, guess what? You are definitely NOT alone.

Many parents today are struggling alone. We are largely isolated. We have volumes and volumes of information about parenting strategies and tools. We have access to the superhighway of parenting gurus out there. There are millions of books and online websites and social media “experts” to receive the most up to date research, tips and guidelines. However, in my practice this is what I see...increasing confusion, indecision and analysis paralysis.

You would think that all of this information at our fingertips would clarify our questions and answer our concerns in a nano second. But, I believe the opposite is true.

The world of parenting is confusing and complex from the very beginning. We are told we need the books, the experts, the best of everything to ensure that our baby is smart enough to get into a “gifted” public school program which ultimately is the only stepping stone to Harvard.

The madness must be halted as mindful mothers come together to share, support and encourage each other in a safe, confidential and relaxing space.

In this 1 hour class, we will spend the first 30 minutes deeply relaxing using simple and quick mindfulness and meditation tools. For the second 30 minutes, we will share parenting challenges as well as parenting victories in an effort to support each other to become calm, effective and invincible, millennial mamas in the modern age.
