Who We Are
Robin’s Nest Meditation Center, Inc. offers a meditation program for youth between the ages of 5 to 19 years old. The meditation practices are led by qualified instructors at a museum facility. This program will take place after-school in a small group setting. Each session will include a time to explain what mediation is, practice mediation exercises, watch a short video, read a poem, and listen to music. Participation is on a first come, first serve basis as venue capacity allows. Robin’s Nest Meditation Center, Inc. will not charge a fee for this program.
The mission of Robin’s Nest is to provide the highest standard of community support by providing an after school program that will further promote the health, social development and educational needs of children that live with the challenges of ADHD, ADD, Autism, OCD, and abuse (e.g. sexual, physical, verbal)
- To improve school performance grades and social/behavioral skills of children who are challenged with the ADHD, ADD, Autism, OCD, and abuse (e.g. sexual, physical, verbal).
Plan of Actions
Help children to cope with life and to be ready for the life ahead.
- Reduce stress level with the incorporation of mediation that can relax children mentally.
- Provide a safe, structured and supportive environment to further promote children health and happiness.
- Provide an alternative to the suspension or detention for children that have been deemed trouble in school.
- Focus on improving memory, attention span, and focus.
Robin’s Nest will be an organization that caters to the needs of developing children, specifically those children who are experiencing additional mental health challenges such as autism, attention deficit disorders. This effective method would also be used for children that have suffered abuse be it physical child abuse, sexual or mental.
Robin’s Nest will be opened to those children and their families after school hours, where they came participate in meditative practices. Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself.
There aren’t too many organizations or businesses that use mediation as a means to assist children. I have used this practice with 3-4 children before. Their parents have communicated that they have seen a significant change in their behavior, attention span, and school performance.
