Shady Grove YMCA Community Forum: Benefits of Mindfulness

  • Shady Grove YMCA 11255 Nukols Road Glen Allen, VA. 23059 (map)

Teenagers face a host of pressures as they strive for independence and navigate an increasingly complex world. Similarly parents face anxiety as they try to maintain a positive relationship and hold boundaries with their teen while still allowing the teen room to grow and experience life. These dynamics can raise the stress levels within a family. Mindfulness can help! Join us as we learn about and experience mindful practices from two local experts, Clair Norman and Sherry Klauer, who will lead this community discussion on mindfulness in the context of family.

Clair is Director of Mindfulness Education with the Cameron K. Gallagher (CKG) Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness, erasing stigmas associated with teenage anxiety and depression and to providing tools that help including mindfulness education and skill building. Sherry left the corporate world and made a career shift to mind/body well-being after her daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2009. She coordinates all mindfulness and spiritual exploration programming at Chrysalis Institute.
