With Meditation Teacher Emma Steenson

Keeping your Cool, Dealing with Stress

April 7, 14, 28 | £15 for 3 weeks | £6 per class drop-in

Sometimes everything feels stressful – at school, college, work and home. There seem to be so many expectations, and we can feel that we need to get everything right.  At the same time as teenagers we are experiencing a lot of new things and reaching new stages of independence. This can add to the anxiety and worry.  In this course we will focus on practical meditations and finding ways to stay calm, reduce anxiety and have realistic expectations.  Buddha’s advice and meditation techniques give us all we need to meet life’s challenges with confidence and a balanced and wise mind.

About the Meditation for Teens Class

Growing up isn’t always easy is it? We often feel confused about how to deal with challenges, parents, and even our friends. Developing relationships is a whole new experience and we may ask ourselves who we really are and who we want to be.

Buddha’s teachings are for everyone at all stages in life, leading us to find an inner confidence that allows us to grow strong emotionally and spiritually even though we find ourselves making mistakes. This is all part of the process of developing fully and happily. We can find our balance of independence and reliance on those around who genuinely care and are willing to help us.

These classes will allow you to unwind your mind and return home relaxed and refreshed. They will provide you with new tools for dealing with stress, anxiety, and problems. They will also help you to overcome negative states of mind such as anger and jealousy, and to cultivate positive minds such as patience and love.

The talks and guided meditations will provide you with the foundation for developing a powerful meditation practice. A regular meditation practice has many benefits:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Brings inner calm and a feeling of well-being
  • Gives clarity to solve our problems
  • Helps us deal with challenging people and situations
