“My home is really chaotic and I used to get stressed as soon as I stepped in the door. Thanks to the teachings, the minute I get home I can go into a small space I set up for myself and do the breathing. Then I can face the drama in my house in a calmer way.” — Ebony, age 16, Humanities Prep High School
THE LINEAGE MODEL
Lineage Project’s unique teaching model fuses meditation, contemplative group discussion, and mindful movement, such as yoga and Tai Chi. We deliver this model to young people who are justice-involved, homeless, in school and suspended from school, or otherwise vulnerable. We also provide trainings and consultations for teachers and staff, helping to build trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and mindful organizations.
