Weekly Teen Meditation at Brooklyn Zen Center
Our workshops in the schools resulted in students encouraging us to create times during which they could meet together weekly to sit in meditation and discuss mindfulness practices. We have designated Tuesday afternoons as student time at Brooklyn Zen Center.
From 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm on Tuesdays, Brooklyn Zen Center hosts a regular meditation group for teens. The group is led by teen mindfulness leaders who have been trained in our mindfulness leadership program. The group is teen-led and teen-only so that there is an opportunity to openly discuss mindfulness practices and how they affect the lives of young people.
If you are a high school and want to explore meditation and mindfulness with your peers, please come by Brooklyn Zen Center at 505 Carroll Street, Suite 2A, between 3rd and 4th avenues. We are a block from the N/R lines.
All teens from all schools are invited to join for sitting meditation and discussion. The page for this group is linked here.
