Homework, holiday gifts, fights with friends, crushes—being a teenager can be stressful! If you need the chance to take a breath and relax, you might be interested in the TeenSpace retreat for teens (parents are invited, too!). Here’s some information about the retreat from TeenSpace:

Register before December 30th to get a discounted price!

Take a day to retreat and connect with yourself, your life, and the planet.

The TeenSpace self-discovery retreat is the perfect opportunity for you and your parents to explore how to live your life with self-awareness, self-care, wisdom, and presence.

Held at the Creative Life Center in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, on Saturday, January 31st, from 8:30– 4:30, this day-long retreat will give you the tools to relax, make better choices, speak your truth, and be comfortable just ‘being’ rather than ‘doing.’

You’ll get experience with meditation and mindfulness practices, yoga postures, truthful heartfelt communication, wonderful mentors, a safe community, and a time to reflect on the mysteries and truths of your life.

This retreat is for any teen and parent who is ready to look deep inside themselves and open up to new ways of being with each other. It doesn’t matter what your race, religion, sexual
orientation, past experiences, or future plans are: if you are open to self discovery and learning new things, TeenSpace is for you.

Facilitators include:

Debra Beck, author of my Feet Aren't Ugly: A girl's guide to loving herself from the inside out, has mentored teenage girls and their parents for over 15 years. Debra shares tools that they can use to empower themselves and tap into their inner wisdom. She will show them how to access answers they hold within.

Maura Mark, Certified Yoga Teacher &Therapist, has been teaching yoga and leading workshops for over 20 years in AZ, UT, CA and Hawaii. She’ll share her love of yoga and will show teens and their parents how to improve their posture, become more flexible and strong, experience deep states of relaxation, quiet the inner chatter of their mind, and all while listening to great music.

Sarah McLean, Meditation Instructor & director of the Sedona Meditation Training Co., demystifies meditation and has been teaching people to meditate for over 15 years. She will show teens and their parents a simple, powerful, silent meditation technique that has been proven to enhance self esteem, help to access intuition, and access inner wisdom. She says meditation is the perfect antidote for the stress teens face today.

We hope to see you there!
