I will be spending two days in April with Chris Germer and Kristen Neff. I have been practising mindful self compassion for a year and a half and I can’t believe how much better I feel. Can’t wait to see where this practice takes me. I’m honoured to be teaching the teen version of this course.
Meditation for Tween/ Teens Soften Soothe Allow. This strategy is from Making Friends With Yourself course. Teens are given weekly follow up meditations and mindful activities each week. Have a listen to my first production!
The more you practice mindfulness..... the better one will feel. Practice this 7 min meditation to gain the skill of mindful body awareness and emotions. Once you master Soften Soothe Allow... you can use it in class, during sports, and anytime you encounter difficult emotions.
Soften Soothe Allow is one of my favourite strategies and is also done in the adult course by Kristen Neff and Germer. Enjoy! We all need tools and strategies to manage life’s ups and down.
