Revive for Teens

July 11 @ 1:15 pm - August 8 @ 3:30 pm

$50

Many teens and young adults are challenged with increasing demands they face each day, and risk of exhaustion, depression and anxiety in youth is on the rise. Mindfulness can help.

In this course, participants will learn healthy ways to approach challenges. Participants will explore mindfulness through a variety of experiential exercises. This will help them to develop greater present-moment awareness and the ability to respond with compassion, kindness and curiosity rather than automatically react to the stressors in their lives.
