Youth Mindfulness Retreat

A Day-Long Mindfulness Retreat For You and Your Kids.

Sunday, January 20, 2019

10:30 am – 5:30 pm, West Hills, CA


We now provide a Youth Mindfulness Retreat along with our traditional day-long Setting Intention Retreat. Start the new year with clear intentions, goals and aspirations and share this with your children. While you are participating in your own day of retreat, our Mindful Family teacher, will be taking the youth through fun and calming Mindfulness activities.

They will practice to have a present mind so they may take actions through clarity and calm. At this day-long Mindfully setting intention retreat, everything is taken care of for you to practice in a peaceful environment away from the grudge of your daily life. There will be a home cooked vegetarian soup, tea, drinking water and other snacks. On the agenda is a Mindfulness talk/ discussion, Mindful eating and engaging in yogi jobs, light Mindful stretching, walking meditation, lying meditation, sitting meditation and more.  It’s held at a peaceful and beautiful private home in a relaxing and spacious environment. Join us to set a Mindful and present tone for the year to come.

Although we will be looking at the past and the future, we practice to know that,

It is all right here, right now.

Only if I could be with whatever is present with me,
Only if I could sit and not resist,
Only if I would not take anything personal,
Only if I could resort to my own inner joy,
Only if I knew how nothing is for sure,
Only if I were here now
Perfectly Here, with no clinging or conflict.
Peacefully here now…..(poem by Manijeh Motaghy)


No prior classes or experience with meditation is necessary.
