Do you know a teen that could benefit from meditation? If so, this a very good retreat designed just for them.  It is really important that young people be supported to practice meditation and healthy relationship skills. When teens learn this practice, they also learn to know themselves. In this way, a generation of wiser and more compassionate human beings is made possible. Please spread the word !!! 

 Come unplug and tune in! Participants on our retreats learn self-awareness, mindful communication, and techniques to calm and focus the mind – the foundations for success in all areas of life. We spend time each day learning mindfulness meditation — a scientifically proven practice that builds emotional resilience, inner strength and well being.

Teens also participate in small group discussions, yoga and creative workshops – including arts, nature, and mindful sports activities. And there’s lots of free time to connect with new friends in a safe and accepting space. Many hesitant teens walk away saying it was one of the best experiences of their lives.

This retreat welcomes teens from all racial/ethnic groups, sex and gender identities, abilities, and religions. Mindfulness creates a foundation for conversations that support understanding and deepen our connection to one another.
