Teen Mindfulness Class Series

4-week class series from April 20 to May 11

Danielle Sewell
with Danielle Sewell

5/4/2017 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM (4 Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00pm) at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

Mindfulness is paying attention to what's happening in the moment with kindness.

This class helps teens bring this kind awareness to their experience - both the external pressures and difficulties they face at school and in social settings, and the stress and self-criticism that can arise internally. Teens will learn ways to cultivate greater compassion for themselves and others, and stay centered through rapidly changing emotions and life experiences. They'll walk away with practical exercises they can do throughout the day or in a difficult moment.

The class will be a mix of mindfulness meditation instruction and exercises, light movement, and discussion. The class is appropriate for those new to mindfulness practices as well as those with some experience. To learn more about the class, check out the Facebook event page!
