Registration for this retreat closes at noon (12pm) on December 20.
NOTE: All Scholarship funds for this retreat have been allocated.
Prerequisites: For teens ages 15-19.
Get your head straight, chill out, learn to focus and appreciate life to its fullest! Explore your heart and mind. Connect with other teens in a positive, meaningful way. Reflect on the mysteries and truths of our lives.
This retreat is an opportunity for teenagers to explore mindfulness practice through guided periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, small group discussions, creative activities and unstructured free time. Besides learning meditation practices, there will also be time to enjoy walks, playing music, telling stories and each others’ company. Since meditation practice may be new to some teens, each period of sitting and walking meditation will be limited to 30 minutes.
Facilitators will be available to give extra support to teens whenever needed. Meals are vegetarian and are prepared with the tastes and preferences of young people in mind.
