Led by Rev. Kit Novotny, First Parish in Lincoln Co-Minister
Leaders from the First Parish in Lincoln will host a series of “Conversations on Tap” gatherings over drinks and snacks at The Tack Room (145 Lincoln Rd.), focused on supporting and connecting parents of young/youngish kids in the Lincoln (and nearby) community around meaningful conversations. Open to the wider community – all spiritual backgrounds (and none) very welcome!
Our first gathering on Sept 25, 7:30-9pm, will explore the practice of self-compassion (based on the work of Dr. Kristin Neff and others) as a strategy for parenting with empathy over perfectionism, gently shifting from shame and stress spirals toward cultivating a kind, supportive inner voice. We’ll also explore how self-compassion can be a tool we pass onto our children.
