If research shows that mindfulness practice strengthens the immune system, decreases emotional reactivity, and fosters self-compassion then shouldn’t the practice be available to youth in our society’s most wounding environments? Through the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation soon our most vulnerable youth will have access to safe, caring spaces with compassionate adults who can gently guide them into stillness. Join Alison to learn and practice trauma-informed mindfulness, to discuss the challenges and opportunities of mindfulness with at-risk youth, to learn more about the integration of mindfulness into the youth justice system, and to share about our community’s commitment to bringing mindfulness into the hardest parts of our society.
