Kid, Teen, and Family Programs

Building skills as a family and as part of a community.

What would it look like if your entire family, together, was on the path of actively learning critical life skills like awareness, presence, equanimity, and kindness?

What would it be like to be part of a community of families with the very same goals?

PRACTICE San Francisco is here to find out.

Our full kid/family schedule is on pause for the summer and will resume in the fall!

For the Whole Family:

Family & Teen Mindfulness Series

with Alexandra Rossi

These are two innovative four-week courses designed to assist parents, caregivers, kids, and teenagers in learning how to use their own internal resources to respond more skillfully to stress and promoting healthy living skills.

Building off the fundamental mindfulness concepts explored in the introductory sessions (see above), participants will learn and practice mindfulness skills based on the senses, breath, and emotions, as well as mindfulness and relaxation activities adapted to everyday living. Taught by mindfulness educator, Alexandra Rossi, this course builds and strengthens the practical time-proven approach of living fully in the present moment for achieving greater balance, vitality, and health.

Four-week course includes:

  • Age appropriate guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
  • Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life
  • Daily home practice suggestion of guided meditations

Four-week Course: $150/per family

Family-oriented Mindfulness Course: Dates Coming Soon!
