The Mind Body Awareness Project
At the Mind Body Awareness Project people believe at-risk & incarcerated youth have the potential to take control of their actions and fully transform their lives – they are literally one breath away from making better decisions.
Customized for an urban youth population and delivered by MBAs extremely dynamic instructors in a language and framework relevant to their lives, the programs are successfully helping teens to develop self-regulation, empathy, and mindful attention, gain impulse control, and relieve the extremely high levels of anxiety and stress they struggle with. http://www.mbaproject.org/ These are the real tools youth today need – tools that bring an inner revolution of the heart and mind.
