Mindful Nature: A Summer Mindfulness Experience for Adolescents (11-14 years old)

Hosted by the Program on Integrative Medicine

Everyday Mindfulness Matters!

In mindful nature, students are given the opportunity to explore their own inner landscape filtered by a lens of connectivity with the natural world around them.  By opening their hearts with self-compassion and nonjudgment, students discover a way of being more in tune with their personal sense of authenticity and inner peace.  By slowing down with mindful awareness, students will explore their natural environment with a heightened sense of awe, wonder, and appreciation.

During the retreat, your teen will experience

Ice breakers and social connection and sharing

Mindfulness of breathing

Beading to create a mindful bracelet

Sense and savor walks

Exploration of one square foot

Finding objects from nature

Based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and tailored to adolescents, the empirically-based curriculum for this course, entitled Learning to BREATHE, was developed by mindfulness expert/clinical psychologist Dr. Patricia Broderick and has been endorsed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
