Inner-Peace on the Streets

AnneMarie, once homeless herself, dedicates a day each week to teach Mindfulness practice to homeless youth at the Urban Peak drop-in Center. She gives them tools to regulate how they respond to a hostile world and deal with trauma. As Gandhi said “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” AnneMarie leads the class through a journey of scientific understanding, self-healing, and meditation. In an ever-changing environment with little optimism, AnneMarie gives these youth resources that help them cope in their current situation and will be with them for the rest of their lives
