      Grow Greater Happiness - A FREE Mindfulness Class for Kids

      This FREE 6-week Grow Greater Happiness program for young people ages 7-11 is run by Seeds of Light* Mondays at 3:30-5:00 from November 4-December 9 and is being hosted in space generously donated by Railyard Apothecary located at 270 Battery Street, Burlington, VT.

      Youth in challenging, in part because young people have so little control over their external environment, in part because they have few tools for managing their internal state.

      With somatic awareness & emotional fluency at its core, the Grow Greater Happiness Program helps young people become more aware of their emotions (including the relationship between external stimuli & their internal reactions) AND provides them with a suite of practical self-care tools to use in the “real world.”

      Incorporating the latest research on neuroplasticity, the science of happiness and the brain-body connection, our mindfulness exercises increase somatic awareness and turn the brain-body connection into something young people can use to their advantage, instead of it being something that has them at its mercy.

      Note: There are so many interesting things to see, sample, and discover at Railyard Apothecary that we're encouraging adults dropping young people off for the Grow Greater Happiness program to stay for a Tea & Conversation Circle. You'll be with interesting people, guaranteed!

      Space is limited to a maximum of 12 young people, so register today!
