Skills for life

The Next Generation of Positive Secondary Education

An inquiry-based approach directly engages students to make sense of their own mind, the choices they are making and ways to make the most of their lives. Workshops and classes include a combination of theory with hands-on practices.

Developing a sense of personal agency is key to Meditation Capsules workshops and classes.
