MINDFULNESS Practices For VULNERABLE YOUTH


 

 

 

 

Lineage Project brings mindfulness programs to incarcerated, homeless, and academically vulnerable youth to help them manage stress, build inner strength, and cultivate compassion. We also train youth-serving staff and organizations in the development of mindful and trauma-conscious cultures and practices.

Lineage is featured in Tricycle magazine.

Lineage is seeking experienced part-time teachers to provide classes to youth and offer staff trainings in sites such as public schools and detention centers in NYC. Teachers must have experience working with youth and adults facing intense life stressors, and be versed in teaching meditation and mindful movement modalities (such as yoga or Tai Chi) to teens and adults. All teacher candidates must first successfully complete apprenticeship under the auspices of a Lineage Teacher. If you are interested, please visit our website in Fall 2018, join our mailing list and/or like us on Facebook for more information.

Research on Lineage

Research on Lineage’s impact was published in the highly respected and peer-reviewed International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology

Mindfulness and Rehabilitation: Teaching Yoga and Meditation to Young Men in an Alternative to Incarceration Program provides vivid insight into how Lineage’s program helped justice-involved young men manage their anger, reduce reactivity, and cope with high levels of stress and anxiety, and therefore may reduce the likelihood of justice system re-involvement. 


Press

The Village Voice published a feature article and a video about our work with homeless youth at a family shelter in the Bronx.
