Teen Leadership

I am deeply commited to the development of leadership skills in young people. To this end, I used Shinzen Young's mindfulness methods to create a program called Mind the Music.

Mind the Music is a mindfulness training program for teens that uses popular music as the object of concentration. It provides clear and simple techniques for cultivating concentration, clarity and equanimity.


Youth who move through the program experience three types of benefits:


  1. They enjoy the program
  2. They find their lives improving
  3. They have a method for dealing with the great questions in life

See the attachment below to learn how youth teachers are instructed to lead a class on relaxation.
