6-week course introducing mindfulness for teenagers

Teenage brains are growing and developing rapidly. This can be a time of great change both physically and mentally. Coping with change can be challenging at the best of times, and this has never been more so with a pandemic playing havoc with our normal lives. This course introduces mindfulness and meditation to teenagers in a safe space to learn how to manage anxiety, anger and healthy responses to an ever-changing world.

While small children are naturally mindful beings, over time they become less mindful as the business of modern life and education begin. Mindfulness is simply being with what is happening in the present moment, without judging what is happening. Mindfulness has been shown to have helpful effects on sleep, concentration and attention; to help with holding big emotions including anger and anxiety when they arise, and to help build connections in the growing brain.

This 6-week course is offered online for an hour a week.

Weekly content includes:

  • mindful movement

  • mindful breathing

  • activities to integrate left and right brain

  • exercises to help with big emotions

  • developing compassion and kindness towards ourselves and others

Pre-course:

Before the course commences, Cara will talk with the parent or guardian about their teenager’s needs, and go through child protection policies, safeguarding, consent and the course content.

Places are limited to allow the online space to become a personal space.
