Wide Awake: Buddhist Meditation for Teenagers (13 - 17)

Lacking energy and enthusiasm? Wonder what life’s all about?Meditation didn’t start with an app. The Buddha taught it 2,500 years ago. He was pretty smart at knowing why, and how, life is difficult. He also showed what to do about it. Come and check out what the Buddha had to say. The afternoon will include meditation, discussion and answering any questions you bring.
