Mindfulness for Students
Are you looking for mindfulness for students? You are in the right place. We can teach your children well-being. Tweens and teens benefit from a monthly or seasonal wellness event, delivered in the classroom or in a community centre, as they learn to be mindful and become body aware. With ever increasing distractions from smartphones and other tech devices, today’s youth need to be taught how to hone their focus. Though people of any age can increase their attention span and develop relaxed attention with mindfulness practice.
Mindful teens experience and practice several awareness exercises in group session, from experiencing different flavours and fragrances to bring them to the present moment and to learning to breathe from their diaphragms to calm and soothe “monkey mind”. Mindfulness as a secular practice was introduced by Jon Kabat Zinn. Truly, mindfulness is an active practice and does not require absolute silence, a meditation mat or the ability to bend into lotus position. It does require a willingness to focus attention and to breathe slowly and deeply. Thus, if your teens have noses, mindfulness will help them feel less stressed and more peaceful.
Mindfulness for All
Mindfulness is available to all, whether in individual sessions or group sessions. Learn to let go of anxiety and worry. Group Sound Bath meditations begin with mindful attention. Listening with the body, you can learn to deeply relax to acoustic sounds from crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, gong, drums, rattle, and chimes. The sounds emanate from the healing instruments and permeate the body restoring, renewing, rebalancing and relaxing you.
