Meditation and Mind Body Solutions for Sensitive Teens
Thursday May 9th and Thursday May 16th 4:30-6:30PM
Presenter Eric Erhke, LCSW,LMFT
The iGen/Gen Z generation was born between the years 1995-2012. Researchers say you are more accepting of others, think for yourself and have less tolerance for authority figures. Who wasn’t moved by the empowered response from the Parkland High School students after seventeen of their classmates were gunned down last year? More cautious and less naïve than previous generations, you will stand up and speak your mind. Unfortunately, state of the art smart phones and social media haven’t eradicated loneliness and depression.
This workshop will provide a variety of meditation and Mind Body solutions tailored to reduce stress. Brilliance, sensitivity, and great empathy have great benefits but also personal costs. I will present my Somatic Empathy Test and offer effective solutions from my experience running residential treatment programs for teens, as a faculty of a Mind Body Healing School, and my book,
The Promise of Wholeness: Cultivating Inner Peace, Mindfulness and Love in a Divided World.
