Mindfulness for Teens and Parents
Brahm Centre is happy to offer the .b mindfulness course specially tailored for youth aged between 12-16 years old.
.b stands for “Stop, Breathe and Be!” This simple act of mindfulness serves to raise the awareness of youths where they learn how to direct their attention to their experience as it is unfolding, moment-by-moment, with open-minded curiosity and acceptance.
The .b mindfulness course is a nine session course, introduced to youths aged between 11-18 years old, that brings mindfulness to life in a way that is fun, engaging and useful in their daily lives. Specially designed by experienced classroom teachers and mindfulness practitioners in the UK, .b mindfulness is the flagship course of the Mindfulness in Schools Project (www.mindfulnessinschools.org).

Introducing the .b mindfulness course to youths at an early age will empower them to cope with challenges that they face in their daily lives,”
