EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

As young people practice meditation they will begin to cultivate positive feelings by connecting to a deeper part of themselves. They will also experience the myriad of health benefits including reduced stress and sharpened focus. This in turn will empower and inspire them to connect to their creativity and enable them to make better decisions. Motivation starts from within. Each person will be taught simple meditation techniques as well as being taught teaching methods so that they may share their practice with others.
