Teaching Mindfulness to Diverse Youth Workshops

On Saturday Oct. 18, more than 70 individuals gathered at the San Francisco Shambhala Center for MBA Project’s co-hosted workshop Teaching Mindfulness to Diverse Youth with the Northern California Shambhala.


MBA was honored to have two of its staff on the panel: MBA’s executive director Roger Miller and Syra Smith, a MBA instructor who has mentored youth in mindfulness for more than 15 years. Along with mindfulness luminaries Meena Srinivasan and Gale Young, MBA provided insight on working with diverse youth populations through sitting meditation, lively discussions and Q&As, and group activities.

Shambhala Times wrote an article about the event and why it’s so important to teach mindfulness, especially to our population. You can read it here.
