Retreat Description:
Get your head straight, learn to deal with stress and appreciate life to its fullest! Explore your heart and mind. Connect with other teens in a positive, meaningful way.

This retreat will be an opportunity for teenagers to explore mindfulness practice through guided periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, small group discussions, and creative activities. Besides learning meditation practices, there will also be plenty of time to connect with each other, tell stories and enjoy each others’ company. Since meditation practice may be new to some teens, each period of sitting and walking meditation will be limited to 30 minutes.

Facilitators will be available to give extra support to teens whenever needed.

All applications go through an initial screening process. Scholarships are available for this retreat, please be sure to complete this section during the application process if you are in need.
