BUILDING EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE AND
COMPASSION IN CHILDREN AND TEENS

We lost Mia at the age of 15 on May 20, 2021.  She was a kind, caring and adorable child. Throughout her life she had the gift of gab, able to carry warm and engaging conversations . . .

TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD
UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION

“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.”

― Ram Dass
