Week 1: Intro
Being a teen can be challenging, emotionally stressful and confusing. You’re trying to figure out who you are and how you fit in the world. The problem is, we’ve defined ourselves from the outside in, instead of the inside out. Social media has magnified an image that doesn’t necessarily reflect how kids are actually feeling, further creating a sense inadequacy. Most kids are really struggling, but we’ve created a culture that perpetuates a false sense of self.
By exploring the energetic system, also called the chakras, we can understand what makes us feel whole and what has us feeling off kilter. This class is not for us to become experts in the chakras, but to understand what each of them are and how they impact how we feel about ourselves.
We are complex beings, made of body, mind and spirit. It’s important to incorporate all aspects of ourselves in whatever way feels authentic to us individually. We are all different, yet want the same thing, which is to feel comfortable and confident in our own skin. It takes time to understand who we are and what we want.
In this course, we will explore all aspects of who we are, earning to live from the inside out, instead of defining who we are from the outside in.
