Our vision is to encourage young people to explore and deepen an awareness of self through mindfulness training. We teach a curriculum that is designed to support social and emotional learning and cultivate awareness of stress reactivity in children and adolescents. Mindfulness-based practices inspire discernment in decision-making and lead to healthier and happier choices. These experiential programs offer youth, and the families who care for them, an opportunity to discover their capacity for a deeper purpose and more meaningful connection to themselves and the world around them.

The Center’s Youth, Family & Education Programs

A 10-week program for parents who are interested in learning Mindfulness practices, to help them navigate the parenting process and deepen their connection to their family. Through these workshops, parents will be exposed to methods of problem-solving and communicating that help build emotional resilience in their children.
