Drop-in Mindfulness Group for High School Students


Join us for an opportunity to learn meditation basics and to connect with people who are interested in learning about their minds while increasing compassion for themselves and others. Whether you are interested in enhancing awareness and creativity, increasing focus and attention, or learning to cope with depression, anxiety, or stress, this group will have something to offer. Tea and light snacks to follow practice and group discussion.

About the Presenter:

She has been practicing since she was a teenager, and has found meditation to offer a safe and expansive space to return to again and again, regardless of the nature of life’s current challenges.
