STUDENT PROGRAM OPTIONS
THE FULL LAB
In each of the three sessions of The Meditation Lab, middle and high school students are introduced to the practice in a unique way. The lab is held during physical education class. Sessions begin with an introduction, followed by simple stretches to warm the body and quiet the mind, a guided relaxation, a unique meditation with a specific focus, and finally a question/answer period.
In each session, a different meditation tool and technique is explored. At the end of the lab, students participate in a group discussion about creating a system to integrate the practice into their daily lives. Simple and practical ways to incorporate two minute “mindfulness moments” will be shared. The aim of the program is to align with the primary goals of physical education ~ fitness for a lifetime. This includes mental health as well as physical fitness.
