About the Event

 2 days- Mindfulness Intensive Program for our Kids  age: 5 to 7 

The objective of this program is to encourage young people to explore and 

deepen an awareness of self through mindfulness training. The intensive 

program is designed to support social and emotional learning and cultivate 

awareness of stress reactivity in children and adolescents.  

Mindfulness-based practices inspire discernment in decision-making and l

ead to healthier and happier choices. These experiential programs offer 

youth, and the families who care for them, an opportunity to discover their 

capacity for a deeper purpose and more meaningful connection to 

themselves and the world around them. 

By now there’s a good chance you’ve heard the term “mindfulness.” It seems 

to be everywhere—touted as the new yoga, the answer to stress, the 

alternative to Xanax.   

[Note:  Xanax- general name: Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety and panic 

disorders. It belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepines which 

act on the brain and nerves (central nervous system) to produce a calming 

effect. It works by enhancing the effects of a certain natural chemical in the 

body (GABA). ] 

Jon Kabat-Zinn, the scientist and widely recognized father of contemporary, 

medically based mindfulness—over 30 years ago he developed a 

therapeutic meditation practice known as Mindful Based Stress Reduction 

(MBSR) in USA—defines mindfulness simply as “paying attention in a 

particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.” 

To expand on that just a little bit about mindfulness is a meditation practice 

that begins with paying attention to breathing in order to focus on the here 

and now—not what might have been or what you’re worried could be. The 

ultimate goal is to give you enough distance from disturbing thoughts and 

emotions to be able to observe them without immediately reacting to them. 

In the last few years mindfulness has emerged as a way of treating children 

and adolescents with conditions ranging from ADHD to anxiety, autism 

spectrum disorders, depression and stress. And the benefits are proving to 

be tremendous. 

Mindfulness and teenagers 

While the research on children and adolescents is really just beginning to 

gain real traction, there are several small studies showing that for kids who 

suffer from anxiety and ADHD, mindfulness can be especially helpful.  

Diana Winston, author of Wide Awake and the Director of Mindfulness 

Education at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, started taking 

teens with ADHD on retreats for what she calls “mindfulness intensive camp” 

back in 1993. Twenty years later the program is still going strong. 

Held on the premises of the Violet Flame KL for Mindfulness, these 2 days

programs are designed for Teens.
