The Mindful Warrior is a pilot project offered in offered in Newmarket at the Warrior Martial Arts Centre. It is currently not available. It was a martial arts based program for youth with attention and hyperactive difficulties, emotional regulation troubles, and anxious and/or angry temperaments. Youth with these types of difficulties may have never had the opportunity to be part of a sports club. Many of these youth have previously been misunderstood by instructors/coaches who are unfamiliar with their particular temperaments. In the Mindful Warrior Program they found a home that strengthens youth protective factors while developing skills in areas of need.
Mindfulness/Meditation Groups are monthly sessions that promote healthy thinking and being for those who want to achieve a better balance in their lives. These groups may complement existing individual and group psychotherapy. The groups take place at 501 Eglinton Avenue East in Toronto.
