A Mindfulness-Based Course

Course Description

Many teens and young adults are challenged with increasing demands they face each day, and risk of exhaustion, depression and anxiety in youth is on the rise. Mindfulness can help.

As a parent, it can be scary to see your child struggle and we sometimes feel frustrated and powerless when we don't know how to help them. The fact is, it all begins with you.

 

When you take care of yourself first, you are your best self for your children. You are also setting an example for them of how to handle challenges and experience their best life. This course will show you how to be present with them and support them as they mature into their own incredible uniqueness and gifts. It will show you how to sit with the hard moments and take in all the blessings that abound which oftentimes go unnoticed.

 

In this course, participants will learn healthy ways to approach challenges. Participants will explore mindfulness through a variety of experiential exercises. This will help them to develop greater present-moment awareness and the ability to respond with compassion, kindness and curiosity rather than automatically react to the stressors in their lives.
