Teen Mindfulness for Summer

 The Teen Mindful Self-compassion Experience this Summer

  ...  is a week long session based on the Making Friends With Yourself Program.  Teens will have the opportunity to incorporate mindful self–compassion into daily activities which include meditation, journal writing, art, yoga, improv games, and nature walks. Each day, students will engage in small group discussions to share their experiences. Mindfulness teaches students to be present with their emotions, and self-compassion helps them respond to these emotions with greater kindness and self-care.  Through developmentally appropriate activities and meditations, teens will learn specific tools which can help them navigate the emotional ups and downs of this life stage with greater ease.

Graduate Class in Fall 2015

Four Qualities of the Heart: Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity

There are four states of mind that support our mindfulness practice and when experienced, allow us to feel light and flexible, open and concentrated at the same time. They are: loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. During this series of classes together we will open to these beautiful qualities of the heart, which are inherent to our being. We will also explore what seems to block us from dwelling in these beautiful states of heart-mind. It is often our fears that get in the way of our access to this loving heart. Using mindfulness practice and guided meditations focused on loving kindness, compassion, joy and forgiveness, we will make contact with this loving heart, nurture it and manifest it in the many contexts of our daily lives.
