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
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.
