Mindfulness Meditation for Teens utilizes guided meditation and other techniques (education, discussion, yoga) to help individuals learn to better experience their emotions and develop a sense of calmness. Participants will also receive strategies and exercises to continue this practice at home and once the workshop ends.
While we believe that mindfulness is a very useful and healthy practice for all, this is a particularly effective technique for individuals coping with anxiety, depression, or chronic pain conditions (chronic headaches/migraines, abdominal pain, etc. . .). We strongly recommend this program for all teens who have experienced these conditions.
