High School and College Years can be tough. There is immense pressure on today’s youth to perform academically, through extra-curricular activities, and socially. Studies and reports show that technology and social media are worsening anxiety and depression in the recent decade. Kids are at a loss, and so are their parents.

The classes cover the following topics:
June 23: An introduction to mindfulness, quick practices to relieve stress, mindful eating and bringing mindfulness into the day.
June 30: Training the mind for more presence through breath, hearing, and body sensations as you sit and walk.
July 7: Understanding negative thinking, cognitive distortions and biases and learning to let them go.
July 14: Practicing self-compassion and compassion for others.
