12-Week Internship Program at Brooklyn Zen Center

Spring 2019

Wednesday, February 27 – Wednesday, May 22

Twice a week participants (ages 14 - 18) explore contemplative practices through mindfulness, meditation, group dialogue, journal reflection, mindful cooking classes, visual art, dance, mindful movement, site visits, and more. The program will close with the presentation of co-created projects.

Participants will have access to—and a personal understanding of—mindfulness tools and techniques that they may share with peers, family, and friends.

Participants will receive a travel stipend and healthy snacks provided each day.
