The Benefits of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a type of meditation, that allows you to focus on the moment, and be intensely aware of what you are sensing and feeling, without attachment or judgement. It allows you to feel present, without being overwhelmed with what is going on around you. Mindfulness can involve breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and help calm the mind. With practice, mindfulness can provide you with the ability to regulate emotions, relieve stress, and reduce anxiety or depression.

Teen & Young Adult Classes

This weekly, virtual, class provides an opportunity for teens to come together (on or off-screen, depending on their comfort level) and “experience” meditation to help deal with life’s everyday stressors. This is an informal gathering where, through guided meditation, we “practice” managing our worry mind, finding our calm, and developing healthy habits to just feel better and be happier.
