Review for Mind Body Awareness Project, Oakland, CA, USA
MBA is a clear pioneer in making mindfulness relevant and accessible to marginalized youth at risk. Youth report a wide range of benefits from their participation, ranging from improved sleep quality to reduced stress and impulsivity. Facilitators are warm, emphasize human connection and deeply care about the youth served. This strength-based program supports youth to recognize their basic goodness, access their own inner wisdom and make choices that support them to live healthy and meaningful lives.
