The Michigan Summer Hang
Breathe, Connect, Vibe
4 Wednesdays, June 23-July 14 @ 6:00pm
With Tanzanite Msola & Jacqui Clay
Ages 14-18 (Michigan residents only)
Michigan teens, come join us for the easy, summer breezy 4-week workshop series! During each session you will learn more about meditation, connect with new and old friends, explore mindful awareness practices and tools to help love and care for yourself and others, and have some time to simply hang out and be the uniquely fabulous you.
We will be meeting on Wednesdays from 6 pm-7m ET from June 23-July 14 (except June 23 when we will meet for a little longer, 6 pm-7:30 pm ET). You are encouraged to join all four sessions for the best cumulative effect, but are welcome to join whichever sessions you can.
Jacqui started meditating when she was eight-years-old and started formally sitting with teachers seventeen years ago. In 2016, she discovered mindfulness and has embraced the practice as her way of moving about in the world.
Jacqui is a certified counselor. She received her training from The Southern California Counseling Center, including training in trauma informed practices. Through a social justice lens, she serves both teens and adults in group and individual settings. Jacqui teaches mindfulness to middle school and high school students at public schools and community organizations. She is also a retreat mentor for UCLA, Spirit Rock Meditation Center and iBme.
Coming from a storyteller background, she is inspired by the wisdom that young people have within them and enjoys the stories they have to share.!
Tanzanite has a long-term interest and passion in supporting young people academically, emotionally, and helping them achieve a creative outlet. Tanzanite has spent the past 6 years in Massachusetts working with young people from all different cultural and economic background, with all levels of ability and disability. Now, as a recent transplant to NYC, Tanzanite currently assists with the Awake Youth Project at the Brooklyn Zen Center. Tanzanite was introduced to meditation at a young age by attending the Insight Meditation Society’s (IMS) Family and Teen Retreats. As Tanzanite leaned into ‘adulthood’ she returned as a staff volunteer for IMS Teen Retreats and for Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) Teen Retreats. Tanzanite has found it truly rewarding and a privilege to witness the positive effects of hands-on projects, building a personal connection, and understanding that each moment is a learning experience through mindfulness. Tanzanite is excited to continue chillin and growing with the iBme family.
