Social and emotional learning (SEL), Health, Mindfulness, decision-making, identity, values, focus, emotion regulation. This class has it all!
It’s crucial for Teens to examine their mindsets about who they can be and become and what they can do. We’ll do that, in addition to cultivating the inner resources they need for resilience and adaptability.
Those skills include the ability to concentrate, the ability to identify and work with ALL emotions, and scientifically-validated habits that improve well-being.
But it doesn’t stop there!
Teens will get printables to help them with their emotions and help them track their home practice.
This class includes the latest neuroscience and will introduce teens to their nervous systems and the impact they have on health and decision-making. We’ll also talk about the roles we play and how we feel about them, as well as the values we think we have.
No class for Teens would be complete without talking about consumption habits, including social media.

Week 1 – Mindfulness of the Body

Week 2 – Focused Attention
Learn what focus and concentration feel like in the body and mind and learn how to cultivate them.
Week 3 – Emotions and Stress
You might be surprised when you find out what emotions and stress actually are biologically/neurobiologically. Find out and learn how to work with them.
Week 4 – Mindful Consumption
What we take in with all of our senses contributes to our mental and physical well-being, as well as our identity. This is frequently the most interesting class, as it includes social media and media and the Attention Economy.

These all work together. Or at least they should. We’ll investigate and also talk about various models for decision-making for brains that won’t fully develop until they are 23.
