Alumni

Welcome former PIHN families! Please visit this page often to see what resources we have listed for you.


Looking for peace of mind?: http://www.palousemindfulness.com/

The programs and materials available through this site are designed to help you experience mindfulness more consistently in life, work and relationship. A live, in-person Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class is the best way to learn mindfulness. The next local MBSR class is scheduled to begin March 11, in Moscow, Idaho. To find live, in-person MBSR offerings in your area, try a web search such as “MBSR Minneapolis” or “MBSR London”.

If it’s not possible for you to take an in-person class, the Online MBSR course on this site is 100% free. It follows the same course curriculum and uses all the same resources that are used in the in-person course.

Web Series:
Diary of a Single Mom is a web based original series that chronicles the lives and challenges of three single mothers and their families trying to get ahead despite obstacles that all single mothers face, such as childcare, healthcare, education and finances. The series is produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Robert Townsend, renowned for such films as Hollywood Shuffle and Meteor Man and written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Cheryl L. West.
Diary of a Single Mom stars Monica Calhoun (The Best Man) as Ocean Jackson, a single mother of two striving to keep her family afloat while working to fulfill her own ambitions of finishing her GED, going to college and opening her own business. Along her journey, she befriends and joins forces with two other single moms, Lupe (Valery Ortiz – The N’s “South of Nowhere”), a mother juggling different fathers for each of her two children while facing health concerns that will change her life and Peggy (Janice Lynde – “Letters to Dad”), a once married, wealthy 50-something who suddenly finds herself widowed, broke and guardian to her only grandchild. Together, the three women search for support and faith as they strive to triumph over the challenges of everyday life.
