    The Parent Council Offers... Parent Meditation
    Wednesday and Thursday 8:30-9:00am

    Meditation is a way for parents to support each other in finding quiet time to be with ourselves. We invite all Hartsbrook community members to join us, including new parents. If you've never meditated, come 5 minutes early for some basic instruction.
    Meditation can help us, as parents, be less reactive and more thoughtful in how we respond to our children. How might our parent community benefit, as well, from engaging in this practice together?
    Hartsbrook Board member Arthur Zajonc writes eloquently:

    "The wakefulness that results from contemplative practice can, when joined with inner equanimity and empathy, create the possibility for a new form of community life." (Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry.)

    Simplicity Parenting
    A Monthly Workshop Series

    Led by Janet Lynch, M. Ed., Certified Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach & Hartsbrook Parent In this 7-session series, parents will practice simplifying their home life with the goal of creating more family connection and ease. We will draw our inspiration from the book Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids by Kim John Payne, M. Ed. Through discussion, hands-on activities, reading and home practice, we will explore ways to communicate more effectively with our families, recognize and respond to our children’s stress, unclutter our physical spaces, create daily rhythms, simplify our schedules and filter adult information for our children. Join fellow Hartsbrook parents from Cricket through High School as we delve deeply into this transformative parenting approach together!

    The Hartsbrook School’s Farm Camp offers children the chance to connect with nature through the life of a working farm. Through meaningful work, Young Stewards (ages 6-12) learn about the farm animals and their care. They enjoy the land-based crafts of farm and garden, such as butter/cheese making, wool dyeing, felting, and paper making.

All campers enjoy songs, stories and water games. Learning to work on a farm teaches children valuable lessons- like perseverance and self-reliance- that help them in the modern world.

  • Simplicity Parenting Workshop
    8:40 am - 10:40 am
    Hartsbrook Hall, Handwork Room

    Simplicity Parenting for Our Community
    A Monthly Workshop Series (October-April)

    Led by Janet Lynch, M.Ed., Certified Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach & Hartsbrook Parent

    In this 7-session series, parents will practice simplifying their home life with the goal of creating more family connection and ease. We will draw our inspiration from the book Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids by Kim John Payne, M.Ed. Through discussion, hands-on activities, reading and home practice, we will explore ways to communicate more effectively with our families, recognize and respond to our children’s stress, unclutter our physical spaces, create daily rhythms, simplify our schedules and filter adult information for our children. Join fellow Hartsbrook parents from Cricket through High School as we delve deeply into this transformative parenting approach together!

    Meditation is a way for parents to support each other in finding quiet time to be with ourselves. We invite all Hartsbrook community members to join us, including new parents. If you've never meditated, come 5 minutes early for some basic instruction.
    Meditation can help us, as parents, be less reactive and more thoughtful in how we respond to our children. How might our parent community benefit, as well, from engaging in this practice together?
    Hartsbrook Board member Arthur Zajonc writes eloquently:

    "The wakefulness that results from contemplative practice can, when joined with inner equanimity and empathy, create the possibility for a new form of community life." (Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry.)

  • Summer Camping at Indian Hollow
    12:00 am - 11:59 pm
    Indian Hollow Road, Indian Hollow Rd, Chesterfield, MA 01012, USA

    Each year Hartsbrook families chip in to rent the entire Indian Hollow campground in Chesterfield, MA. Some families come just for the day, others stay four nights. Children of all grades bike through the woods, build chutes and play in the river, play capture the flag, and have a grand time. Hike, lounge in a chair, or join the music making while you roast s'mores. On our last night, following a communal bonfire and sing along, the high school students sleep out under the stars in the field.

    For information, directions (Google will put you an hour away), or to find out why this is my favorite event of the summer, contact Tim McNerney at 413-341-1379
