WHAt is grit?
Grit runs workshops, classes and retreats in brain-health + soul-resilience for kids, youth and adults in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, BC and recently in Toronto, ONT.
Our hope is that by giving ourselves a chance to drop in, we can rise-up to face the chaos of life with grace, humility and gratitude.
Meditation is the corner-stone in our heart-led + science based approach.
grit for youth
The amount of teens with mental health issues has sky-rocketed.
This is the first generation to be completely immersed in technology. They are the guinea pigs. Are we too distracted by content to be in touch with who we are and what we need? Are we suffering from lack of face to face human connection? Is social media adding to the suffering?
Our goal is to give people the tools they need at a young age to keep their brains happy and healthy through the tricky times.
We aim to explore how to listen to and trust our heart by quieting our minds.
At Grit we use meditation (aka #braintrain) to show how strong our spirits are, unique crafts to show how strong our creativity is, and mindful activities to teach us the power of being present.
We also talk about real topics like friendships/relational aggression, identity, anxiety + mental health, stress, pressure, gender stereotypes, technology, compassion, empathy, privilege, and what being an authentic human is really all about.
We'd love you to join us!
