Do you have a teen who is stressed? Struggling with the pressures of teen life? Feels anxious, distracted, or overwhelmed?
When inspiring awareness through mindfulness, we transform. Everything changes. Instead of reacting mindlessly or revolting with self-destructive behavior we evolve to respond mindfully. Instead of feeling disconnected or helpless, we find everything we do reflects the connection of our personal lives to all others.
Mindfulness is noticing your thoughts, feelings and physical sensations in the present moment without judgement. The objective of practicing mindfulness is to develop and strengthen one’s ability to pay attention, and to be aware of the consequence of one’s feelings and behavior.
The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) Program will help teens in 9th-12th grade learn simple yet effective mindfulness practices. Improve Focus, Manage Stress, and Enjoy Life. During the 8-week course, teens will use the techniques of mindfulness to intentionally focus awareness and observations of their own emotions and behaviors from moment to moment. Outside practice will be expected to discuss in sessions.
