Join us for meditation, relational mindfulness, befriending ourselves, and building saṅgha through fun and experiential Dharma exploration.

In this teen series, learn how to meditate, 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 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.

Please note – this class will meet for 6 sessions and will skip two holidays: Easter (4/17) and Mother’s Day (5/8)
