Listen to each other in silence
Deeply attuning and listening to each other from silence is the basis of Relational Mindfulness and Presence in relationship. Then we can truly see each other as we become attuned to being held in a larger field of love.
To be truly present to ourselves and our children. To listen deeply to what is needed in this unfolding now. These are questions we hold as we explore our own barriers and come into deeper joyful connections with our children through mindfulness and presence. The parenting programs are offered in-person and online in a variety of formats. We also offer an eight-week parenting course in Mindfulness & Deep Listening. As part of a research initiative by the Kaveri Group in association with Greater Good Science Center, Berkley University, California, Sandy conducted Mindfulness sessions for Parents in a year long project.
We offer Mindfulness retreats for couples over a weekend. These retreats offer a space for couples to discover themselves and their relationship with freshness. There is space for individual reflection, reflections as a couple as well as learning as a community.
Our residential Mindfulness Retreats for Families happen every year. Parents, children, teens and grandparents come together in a three day retreat over a weekend. Mindfulness is explored in age-appropriate ways for children and opportunities are created through art, music, nature-based explorations, for families to discover a new way of being.
In our mindfulness retreat for teenagers we explore common themes that emerge during these years and discover how we can meet and navigate challenges as we come to recognize our deeper selves and our true potential.
Children look forward to sessions with Sandy for the kind of presence that she brings, the activities that she conducts. They like the activities,sessions and games as they are engaging. They shared it gives them an opportunity to understand something deeper through them. They also feel that they have a very safe and trusted space to express and to be just as they are. The workshops children shared greatly helped them to resolve their difficulties and difficulties with their peers as well.
I enjoyed the mindfulness camp for families. This is my second time at the camp. It is so beautiful to fully realise and acknowledge how the kids (and yourself) have 'grown' as people in one full year. we see and measure physical growth and look for milestones...but it is beautiful to see them grow in other capacities too...ability to recognise and articulate whats going on for them, find resources to cope with their struggles and have a lot of fun! I will recommend this to every parent!
Both my kids have participated in over 5 Mindfulness camps as pre-teens as well as teens. They have been able to better understand themselves, and are able to be mindful and self-aware at most times. Sandy and Prem are revered by both of them as very able facilitators and friends. They have also been able to build friendships with many like minded friends outside their school during these overnight camps. I would highly recommend sending your children to the JustBeing Mindfulness camps.
The Mindfulness Teenagers Camp I attended last year was pretty fun! It was the time when I was really stressed about everything, but those three days of disconnect from usual was useful. I got to do fun activities with people my age and I think I also made lasting friendships. Thank you so much for facilitating the fun experience I had last year.
