TEEN MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION
Given the demand on teens and families' schedules, its been difficult over the years to provide MBSR training in eight consecutive weeks. Therefore, the consensus was to turn the Mindfulness for High School and College program into four workshops throughout the year: Perception, Conditioning, Communication/Stress and Integrating Mindfulness into Daily Life.
At the teens request, the sessions are held on Friday evenings 6:30-9 p.m. Each session does have a theme but can be taken independently. Join us Friday, July 24, for the last of the four part 2014-2015 series.
HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP/S (14-22) July 18, 2014
A Friday evening three hour workshop "An Introduction to Mindfulness" was held for HS and college-age students this summer. The response was very positive from the participants! Mindfulness, and what is stress with real life examples were discussed, the biology of the stress response was presented with physical sensations in the body. Several meditation practices were done together. Supporting videos were viewed with opportunities to snack and chat. Typical responses were compared with healthy choices. Everyone took away new perspectives and many asked for follow-up sessions.
