Mindfulness Workshops for Parents & Professionals

      Our pace of life has changed dramatically moving into the 21st century. This pace has led to dysregulation and fragmentation within our children, showing up as ADD, ADHA, behavioral issues, depression, and anxiety. We as parents and professionals can feel depleted in resources as we facilitate children during overwhelming moments. Through our workshop series, we bring clarity to understanding how our pace of life effects the growing child and give practical resources in holding mindful space for the child to be in the moment with their experience. This mindful integrative approach not only empowers you as the parent and professional but the child.


    The opening day lays the foundation for understanding 21st-century findings through epigenetics, neurosciences, pre & perinatal birth psychology, attachment theory, along with cultural myths through viewing the movie In Utero and ending with an expert panel discussion. The following mindful workshops bring education in understanding the child’s social nervous system. What it means for the system to be dysregulated or fragmented and how to assist the system to move into a functional range through mindfulness practices. Also, we have added a day just for the fathers and partners, to give support understanding what it means to be a dad in the 21st-century with an expert panel discussion.

Importance of Mindfulness for Teacher

For Birth Practitioner, Yoga Teachers, Medical Practitioners, School Teachers, Holistic Health Practitioners and Self-Explorers

Your journey to this point in life has been filled with joy and trauma, it's learning to integrate the trauma, that allows for an awakening to happen.   All of our journeys start the same, birth, but all of our stories are very different.  It's through our birth, our story begins.

Our Story

The health of the land is a reflects of our children on the land

An Idea Is Born

Mindful Ways is a partner of the Urban Eco-Village of San Jose. Our village is based on the “Sustainable Urban Village Model: A Biomimic Design”. Our Mindful and Ecological Parent co-op is grounded in creating systems that reflect the patterns and principals in our local ecology. This approach is the most resilient and stable system known to us. Ecosystems are self-replicating, self-propagating, and self-maintaining. Learning and facilitating natural systems increase in complexity and resiliency over time and uses resources effectively by cycling them through tens of thousands of interactions, which will be reflected in the community. When this space is held in a Mindful and Conscious way the community grows roots in empathy, compassion, and altruism through seeing the interconnectedness.  


    Our model of ecological systems facilitates the end of every process is the beginning of another. Every organism depends on countless others and, in turn, relies upon the whole. This process emphasizes the importance of mindfulness, the goal of education is not the acquisition of knowledge but the intertwining of it. The purpose of a mindful and ecological approach is to create communities capable of applying knowledge from multiple domains in new and novel situations. Creative problem solving is the ability to see or combine previously disconnected concepts in new circumstances. Through our Mindful and Ecological Parent co-op we can bring not only a community back into a sustainable place but bring caring and courageous kids
