Establish healthy habits for the new school year by exploring:

  • What are my strengths?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • How can I live my own values and stand up against pressures to conform?
  • How do I live authentically when I feel judged?

Through multiple outlets (such as body awareness, mindfulness practice, movement, music, writing, and visual creative expression), experience a variety of ways to learn about yourself.

Series will include weekly 50-minute workshops with interactive group exercises, mindfulness exercises to practice each day, a meeting with a staff coach, and self-awareness and creative activities designed to support you to:

  • grow your courage to be who you really are
  • learn how to stick to habits that support you in living fully alive
  • be kind to yourself while taking risks
  • question societal norms instead of being complacent
  • set relational boundaries, while bringing forth your authentic self
  • realize your strengths and transform your fears and challenges

A completion certificate will be granted for participating in the full five weeks and staff coaching session.

Open to all students. You do not need to have completed previous parts to benefit from this Course.
