Event Details

Date: 6 Sundays: April 15 – May 13, 6:00 – 8:30pm; 6th Sunday, May 20, 11:00am – 3:00pm
Sliding Scale $120 – 240. Code TE3C18.

All teens in high school and beyond are welcome!

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 potluck celebration and a half-day of practice among the trees on Spirit Rock land. During the class, parents are welcome to read, meditate and connect with each other in the Spirit Rock bookstore and foyer.

Registration limit: 25 teens per class. Preregistration is strongly recommended as this series often fills.
