High School to College: Making a Mindful Transition

Peace in Schools is proud to be collaborating with the Enso Theatre Ensemble to offer a workshop for teens on how to navigate the often stressful transition from high school to college. 

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
It can be challenging knowing what to do when you have so many options in front of you. You may not know what you want and there may be fear around making the "right" decision. This workshop is about finding your truth and feeling grounded when you look to the future. Yes, change can be scary AND every single one of us has the ability to breathe, come back to a place of center, and connect with our authentic selves. In this workshop, you'll learn how to access that place of power so that the choices you make are made with a deep understanding of who you are and what you want.

Open to ages 15-18
Date: Sunday, April 23
Time: 1:30-4:30p
Location: Hand2Mouth Theatre, 210 SE Madison St, #11

Mindfulness for Parents: Finding Balance

Most of us are often so busy taking care of others that we plow through our day-to-day lives without considering our own moment-to-moment experience, especially during the holiday season.

In this workshop, we will explore ways of discovering balance, center, and our innate ability to love ourselves and others wholeheartedly. Through awareness practice, we will cultivate skills that can deepen our experience of presence and help us tune into connection, even in the midst of our busy lives.

We will alternate periods of guided and silent meditation and facilitated group discussion that is interactive and personal – though there is no requirement to speak. 

This workshop is open to all. We are deeply committed to being an open and inclusive community, accepting and supporting diversity in age, race, physical and mental abilities, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity. Please let us know how we can fully support your workshop experience.

Mindfulness & the Brain:Interpersonal Neurobiology & Mindfulness in Education

with Caverly Morgan & Christine Downs, MEd

How can mindfulness help us connect more fully, authentically and effectively with youth? 

In this course you’ll learn the science and practice of mindfulness from Peace in Schools, the nonprofit that launched the first for-credit mindfulness class in a U.S. public high school.
 
You’ll learn the basics of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Dr. Dan Siegel's pioneering field of study. We’ll cover basic brain anatomy, development and function. And you'll learn about the latest scientific research on mindfulness practices. You’ll gain both a theoretical and experiential understanding of the brain-body connection.

You'll be introduced to foundational mindfulness practices and experience directly how they can transform your life. You'll build attentional skills, cultivate acceptance, bring awareness to the inner critic, learn compassion and practice relational mindfulness skills. 

We’ll focus on how mindfulness can transform your life, your relationships and your work with youth.
 
This course is beneficial for anyone who works with children and teens, including educators, parents, counselors, mental health professionals and health care workers.

Online Course Bonus

This weekend will be filmed for the creation of a future online course. In return for participating, you will receive free access to the online course for three years, a great way to review course content and activities.
