Mindfulness for Youth

 

Mindfulness training is available for ages 12yrs - 19yrs in secondary schools, youth groups and first year college students.

The three training options:

.b - The Mindfulness in Schools course is delivered over a number of weeks through powerpoint slides with practical exercises and home practice.

One-off - A 1 hr group session teaching the foundational meditations along with questions and answers.

One-to-one - A 1 hr session for young people who want to learn these techniques with individual attention. Uner 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Mindfulness helps students:

  • to feel happier, calmer, and more fulfilled
  • to get on better with others: students and staff
  • to concentrate and learn better
  • to help cope with stress and anxiety

What is .b?

The .b training is a course developed by secondary school teachers who are long term mindfulness meditators. It provides clear, simple and thorough training on skills that make young peoples daily lives more joyful and productive.
