ANCHOR

Anchor is a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for teens. During the 8 week course, teens will discover tools to intentionally focus awareness and observation of their own emotions and behaviours, from moment to moment.  When inspiring awareness through mindfulness, we transform. Instead of reacting mindlessly, we respond mindfully. Instead of being overwhelmed, we can feel anchored and grounded. The objective of practicing mindfulness is to develop and strengthen one's ability to pay attention, and to be aware of the consequences of one's feelings and behaviours.  MBSR-Teens is designed to teach adolescents practical skills to reduce stress and enhance their quality of life.
