Boy Group's Brain Power
Meet the brain! Beginning at birth and continuing to age 25, the brain is constantly growing and changing. Knowing how the brain works can improve understanding of actions and reactions. Over the course of this six-week Boy Group series we’ll investigate the complexities of the adolescent brain. We’ll look at impulse control, risk-taking behavior and celebrate the opportunities of neuro-plasticity. Participants will learn to partner with their brains by making healthy choices, and practicing strategies for calming worried thoughts.

Girl Group's On Purpose
In trying times, it’s hard to stay connected to ourselves and each other. The body runs, the mind races, the heart thunders and the spirit fades. In this Girl Group series, we’ll be exploring ways to deepen self-awareness and find strength in wholeness. Over six sessions, we’ll investigate the link between emotion and physical sensation and create a "document of the body, mind and spirit." Using mediation and empathy exercises, we'll learn new ways to expand the heart and boost the spirit. We’ll continue to practice non-verbal communication, exercise our listening muscles and improve our ability to stay grounded in the world.
