Why Amiga Moms?
Research published in the Journal of Child and Family Studies has found Latina mothers experience higher rates of parenting-related stress than white, non-Latina mothers. Consequently, additional supports and stress-relievers, such as understanding and implementing a mindfulness practice, are beneficial to reducing stress.
There is also research stated by the American Psychological Association that mindfulness has the following empirically supported benefits:
Boosts to working memory
Less emotional reactivity
More cognitive flexibility
Enhancement of self insight, morality and intuition
Amiga Moms will reap many benefits such as:
Networking and support from other 21st Century Latina mothers
Knowledge on mindfulness and its benefits
Practical mindfulness exercises to implement and practice
