Learn meditation, relax deeply, speak your truth, and develop your mind—all while hanging out with other great people your age. Through the practices of mindfulness and insight meditation, we take the time to reconnect to ourselves in order to experience more peace, wisdom, and compassion.

Classes will include movement, community-building games, meditation instruction, and council—a practice of witnessing the group’s collective wisdom. The final class will include a ritual and celebration.
