Tweens/Teens often experience high levels of stress due to school, social pressure, family dynamics, hormones, body image issues and more. The Self-emPOWERment and Mindfulness program is designed to teach teens skills to cope with the world they live in, build a sense of community and increase gratitude, self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-confidence. The program is based on the teachings of Louise Hay's “Heal Your Life” Adult workshop but has been adapted for tweens/teens (age group 11 - 17 years).
During this week-long program, teens are guided through a variety of fun activities, relaxation exercises, visualization, meditation techniques in a nurturing and safe environment. Tweens/Teens are encouraged to participate with an open heart and an open mind. There will be lots of discussions and group work. Tweens/Teens are inspired to create goals and develop the courage and perseverance to follow their dreams. They are introduced to mindfulness practices including yoga, becoming comfortable in their body and honing their mental aptitudes in a fun and captivating way. At the end of the week, teens develop health and wellness habits that last a lifetime, by focusing on positive outcomes.
