Our teens are facing greater mental health challenges than ever before. Whether from screen overload, cyberbullying, social pressures or academic stress - teens are in great need of an education in self-care.
This 4-week research-based course will allow your teen to develop beginning mindfulness skills and cultivate a mindfulness practice that will reduce stress and improve their mental health. Your teen will become empowered to take control of their well being, become more aware of thoughts and behaviors leading to higher accountability, increase their self esteem, and find an inner happiness not attached to anything external. They will learn tools that will last a lifetime and if you're lucky, they just might teach you! Includes one live group coaching call each week with Kerry Foreman and two skill sheets/meditations per week.
