Family Mindfulness Day

Sunday 8 May, 10am to 1pm, Sharpham Woodland Campsite kitchen

Events at The Sharpham TrustJoin us at the beautiful Sharpham estate for a morning of mindfulness for kids and adults.

Through meditation, play and other activities we’ll explore how mindfulness can help us be more present and joyful to our lives.

Whether you and your family have a long term meditation practice or you are curious to develop one, you can join two of our retreat leaders (who are also parents) to learn and practice mindfulness together.

This event is for children aged 6 to 11.

Kids should be comfortable being away from their parents for periods during this session, as the group will split for part of the morning into groups of children and adults.

Adults will explore meditation and mindful parenting, there will be activities for children to experience mindfulness through play and nature connection as well as opportunities to come together to experience mindfulness as a group.

There are toilets and running water and drinking water is available on site.

Prices have been subsidised thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage FundNational Lottery logo

This day is for you if you:

  • Want to deepen or develop a family mindfulness practice
  • Are a parent who wants to learn more about mindful parenting
  • Want to be more present and aware to the joy in (family) life
