  • Mindful Self-Compassion Course

    Thursday, March 16 – May 4, 12:00pm – 2:30pm / University of Washington Campus - 3903 Brooklyn Ave NE Seattle, WA 98105

    Mindful self-compassion is the first step in emotional healing—being able to be-friend oneself, turn inwardly and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings with a spirit of openness, curiosity and love, rather than self-judgment, or self-criticism. The more we open our heart to this reality instead of constantly fighting against it, the more we will be able to feel compassion for ourselves and all our fellow humans. This class is co-taught by Community of Mindful Parenting/Listening Mothers founder Yaffa Maritz LMHC and Blair Carleton.

  • Healing The Child In All Of Us: Creating Resilience Through Relationships

    Saturday, March 18, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM / Prince of Peace Lutheran Church 14514 20th Avenue NE Seattle, WA 98155

    Resilience and Relationships are two important aspects across the lifespan, and ensuring that these are strong starting in childhood both seem more critical to our collective future than ever before. On this interactive day, Gina Lebedeva PhD, CCC-SLP and Deborah Peterson will guide an exploration of the intersections of modern neuroscience, classic human bonding, and the future of education around resilience. During this event, we will create time and space to not only celebrate all that we do to foster these, but we will go deeper to discover new perspectives and connections, through safe but brave discussion and interactive learning. We will draw from various disciplines & materials around research, case studies, and from each other, using guided discovery that parallels the Montessori method.
