Loneliness poses a huge health problem for a lot of people. The risks include depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and decreased wellbeing. COVID-19 has increased feelings of loneliness and most kids aged 13 to 25 feel frustrated, nervous, and disconnected during the quarantine.
We are launching, with the help of Heartfulness Institute, a 4-week program to manage stress and develop overall wellbeing. This program will begin on July 11, 2020. The total time needed to be part of this program is 15 minutes for daily activity and 4 thirty-minute webinars. This will be part of a research project, funded by Heartfulness Institute, to explore the impact of Heartfulness program on loneliness in high school students in the US.
Heartfulness offers a rich variety of simple relaxation and meditation solutions to help us solve our problems and be the best we can possibly be. Whether a teacher or an administrator, a student of science or art we can all pursue the path of fulfillment, excellence and perfection.
Our programs are designed for all schools and focus on giving simple and practical techniques to nurture individual well-being and balanced living.

“Students are excited and they really enjoyed your first Hearfulness class. Comments were all positive! One girl said that when she went to her next class, another girl asked her why she was so happy, and she said because she meditated and it changes your brain. They really liked the TED talk - statistics are good!! Now they have a better understanding of WHY…. Looking forward to the next class.”
