A Group for Adolescent Girls
Heartskills 101 is a group where adolescent girls have the opportunity to learn the long-lasting skills of self-inquiry, self-management and emotional self-care. Being a teenager is tough: there's no doubt about it! As it isn't enough that in the midst of trying to balance so many changes in physical, social and emotional development with environmental pressures, teenagers today have the added challenge of inheriting the state of the world as it is: put simply, in need of a new way. I believe our children inherently have what it takes in order to help heal the world, but first they need to know how to heal themselves. This requires what I call "dropping into the heart" by developing the vital skill of listening to one's inner voice and following one's "gut" or tapping into one's intuition. I'm very excited to offer this new group for adolescent girls designed to facilitate self-healing on all levels.
This group is an empowering experience and will support each participant in identifying the areas they’d like to work on as well as provide a caring and safe environment where deep and meaningful change can occur. Much effort in this group is made to help each girl learn to trust their inner guidance and make good choices in all areas of their lives.
