Mindfulness for Teens: Summer Day Camp
Jul 28, 2017 - Jul 29, 2017
Being a teen in today’s fast-paced, media-saturated world is difficult and highly stressful. With the intense and constant pressures teens face at home, at school, and from their peers, it is crucial to teach them self-awareness and stress-management skills so that they can experience balance, joy, and health. The practice of mindfulness—paying attention to the present moment with kindness and curiosity—has been scientifically proven to decrease anxiety and depression, and increase attention, learning, and resiliency in teens.
The Seton Cove’s 5th annual Mindfulness for Teens: Summer Day Camp program is an expression of profound respect for our community’s teens, a deep bow to their treasured lives, and a road map for bringing mindfulness more fully into their lives. This day-long event is specially designed for teens (ages 13-18) to discover peace and joy through self-acceptance, creative expression, and connection with other teens. Activities will include a variety of mindfulness practices including calming exercises, stress-relieving artwork, eco-mindfulness, Tai Chi, meditation, awareness of negative thought patterns, gratitude practices, and more. All supplies will be provided and breakfast and lunch are included.
