a 6-week program for young people aged 14-17

This 6-week ‘Mindful Resourcing and Connection Building’ program has been specifically designed with young people in mind. Why? Because existing as a young person is both a gift and a challenge, as well as an opportune time to cultivate skills and ways of being that are conducive to living an aligned and meaningful life.

We believe everyone deserves to be introduced to mindful resourcing and effective strategies for emotional regulation, honest reflection, and interpersonal communication – the sooner, the better.

This program incorporates a blend of psycho-education and embodied facilitation tailored to a 14-17 year olds. Whether it be through orienting, utilisation of the breath, movement, connection to voice, nature’s wisdom, or written word… we believe in cultivating a new norm of interdependence and regulated responsiveness, rather than isolated overwhelm and reactivity. In other words, we can support one another (with whom we share environment) from a place of disconnection to connection – in sometimes seemingly small, yet cataclysmic ways.

Through our intimate group sizes we get to co-create a container of safety for explorative expression. Each session is uniquely infused with meditation, group contemplation, embodied resourcing, and playful connection building – creating new possibilities for both being and relating.

Participants are introduced to relevant tools, invaluable resources, and transferable skills that are strengthened through practice, and can be accessed well beyond their adolescent years. ’Tis the offering I wish I had, and for that very reason, my pleasure to host.

I invite you (or your loved one) to come be human, practice in community, and get a taste of what’s possible.
