TEEN WORKSHOPS

The youth of our world will continue a movement to nourish, love, and celebrate themselves by caring for their bodies, minds, hearts and spirits.

Self Care begins with listening to and honoring oneself.

 

  • How do you listen to the messages that your body sends you?

  • How do your body’s messages connect to your heart, mind and spirit?

  • What tools are you gathering along your way?

  • Which ones serve you and help you feel your best?

  • How will you explore what helps you feel most YOU?

Why Self Care?

Self care workshops are an opportunity for teens to explore their ability to nurture and care for their well-being, growth and one another. Within a community, they will explore different practices based in movement, art, massage, aromatherapy, meditation and more to design their own a self-care practice.

Goals to Consider

1. To learn different ways to care deeply for oneself

2. To appreciate the body and all that it does

3. To listen for and connect with messages between body and heart

4. To witness and be witnessed in a supportive community

5. To take away at least one practice and make it one’s own

  • Following, we explore how to care for an area of the body (belly, feet, legs, arms, chest, neck, head) with supportive massage
