Teen Mindfulness Class Series

Five-week class series on Sundays from January 14, 2018 through February 11, 2018

Anna Ossenfort
with Anna Ossenfort

1/28/2018 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM (Every Sunday) at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

Mindfulness is paying kind attention to what’s happening in the moment. 

This class helps teens bring this kind attention 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.
Seattle Insight Meditation Center welcomes and encourages participation by teens of all races, genders, abilities and financial means.

This class is intended for high school teens, ages 14 to 19, who have clearly chosen to attend.  A parent permission form is required for teens under 18. You may obtain the form at your first class or download the form by clicking this link: Parent Permission Form.
