Our workshop is for the age group of 10 years to 16 years. Some aspects covered in the workshop include meditation, positive thinking, creative visualization and goal setting.
You are probably wondering, “Why would a child or young person need meditation, positive thinking, creative visualization and goal setting?”
Children and teenagers (young adults) have to deal with many issues which parents may not even be aware of. They often bottle up their fears and worries, keeping quiet because they do not want to cause trouble or upset those around them.
Some common concerns of your child could be about:
Family break ups
Non-academic children being left with a sense of failure
Fitting into a new environment
Expressing their true personalities / gifts / talents
Worry about finding projects / college placements / college admission
Financial worries that their families are going through

Sometimes, they never really talk as much as they can about what is bothering them, either, because they feel they should be able to deal with their own problems or because they do not want you to worry.
All the above issues can be managed through the following techniques:
