Why join the workshop?
This is an online workshop.
Mindfulness is a powerful tool we can teach our young people to thwart these tendencies. It is an exercise of consciously paying attention to the present moment: knowing what we’re doing while we’re doing it. This workshop will engage the adolescents with fun, interactive, and age-appropriate activities grounded on breathing exercises, meditation, and guided discussions. Aside from teaching them practical techniques for relaxation, focus, and coping with stress, it also promises to be a safe, unintimidating space for them to identify their current state of emotions and to dialogue and share with others.
We invite the youth to disconnect momentarily from their digital worlds to reach deep within their true, authentic selves, so that they may reconnect to what is truly important in the present and live out an attitude of gratitude.

Identify their feelings and current state of emotions; relieve pent-up emotions through meaningful interactions with their facilitator and peers
