Our children’s program (ages 6-15) is focused on a holistic education of mindful eating, exercise, academic achievement, personal goal setting and effective communication skills. This curriculum has greatly enhanced student’s understanding of what makes a bully, how to deal with an adult who may have the most malicious intentions, how to handle stressful situations at home as well as school. The use of stories at the end of each class as well as slow paced meditative breathing enhance children’s sense of calm and deep thinking at the end of their activities. Focus skills are taught in clear, concise age appropriate lessons to provide children with a sense of present moment thinking and action. Community engaging projects are provided so that children may learn about what it means to belong to a community and how to engage their peers as well as members of society in a constructive, productive way.
