Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens
Do you have a teen who is stressed?
Struggling with the pressures of teen life?
Feels anxious, distracted, or overwhelmed?
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for
Teens Program will help teens 14-19 years of
age learn simple yet effective mindfulness
Improve Focus, Manage Stress and Chill Out in 4-Weeks!
During the 4-week course, teens will learn to use the techniques of mindfulness to intentionally focus awareness and observations of their own emotions and behaviours from moment to moment.
When inspiring awareness through mindfulness, we transform. Everything changes. Instead of reacting mindlessly we respond mind-fully. Instead of revolting with
aggression, we evolve to discern behaviour and to choose nonviolence. Instead of feeling disconnected or helpless, we find everything we do reflects the connection of our personal lives to all others.
The objective of practicing mindfulness is to develop and strengthen one’s ability to pay attention, and to be aware of the consequence of one’s feelings and behaviour.
