BringForthYouth for high school students ages 15-18 provides an enthusiastic environment for teens who want a chance to break free from their everyday lives and challenge themselves with something more. The program includes fun tasks and games as well as self-awareness and meditation practices to help teens better understand and express themselves emotionally, physically, sexually and mentally.

In this youth program you can explore and focus your ambitions and talents. You will have the chance to make meaningful connections through partner and group exercises and guided discussion. The skills learned through the BringForth program can become important tools to help with challenges, stress, relationships, puberty and problem solving. The program aims to empower teens to unlock the potential of who they wish to be and help them start to create their vision.

“Raging Hormones” is a term that many adults use to describe the teenage reaction to feelings of anger, depression, and sexual feelings. The term can sound like the hormones and feelings are out of control and take over your body during your teenage years. But you can as a teen learn to manage your reaction to the changes in your mind and body. BringForth Youth can help give you empowerment and mastery of choice and freedom over body, mind, and emotions. Learn to tap into your own being and get a sense of who you are and where you want to go because you have the power to do so.

Here is one mother’s expression of what her son got out of the program:

“I want to thank you again from the bottom of my heart for creating the opportunity of your summer camp that my son Devon participated in. It has given him the confidence and independence to be the great man that I have raised him to be. With your influence we have produced ...Read More

The Youth Program for 15-18 year students is designed to develop and cultivate:

  1. Emotional awareness and mastery
  2. Relational and social literacy
  3. Creativity and self-expression
  4. Physical, sexual and spiritual awareness and well-being
  5. A sense of being at choice versus a victim
  6. Balance between wants and responsibility

These six core capacities promote profound integration of the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the youth. The outcomes for the youth are a greater sense of peace and joy, authentic self-expression and a capacity to create fulfillment in their life and relationships.

The BringForth approach combines ancient Eastern traditions with Western technology involving practices and processes of conscious breathing, meditation, energy awareness and communication exercises. These practices and processes assist in clearing misconceptions of Self allowing for a shift towards effective behavior and actions. The youth are left with a sense of greater joy, freedom and responsibility in life.

Program activities involve:

  • Conscious breathing, stillness and meditation practices
  • Energy awareness
  • Theatre exercises and role play
  • Music and movement
  • Drumming circles
  • Listening and communication exercises
  • Conversations that matter to teens
