An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 5, 2019
Adolescence is a time of change and growth. It is the period of life reserved for rebellion and self-discovery, but as the demands in life increase for teens, this time is often fraught with confusion, anxiety and/or depression. For many teens, these challenges lead to disconnection and isolation. This program in Mindful Self-Compassion is designed to facilitate awareness, self-kindness and stronger connections in response to these growing challenges. Through developmentally appropriate activities and carefully crafted practices and meditations, teens have an opportunity to learn how to navigate the emotional ups and downs of life with greater ease. This course creates an opportunity for adolescents to construct a healthier and more equitable world-view and gives rise to greater compassion and empathy toward self and others.
