March 2017 - MBA Project Newsletter

Daylong Benefit with Noah Levine raises $6,400! 

Thank you to everyone who attended Noah's Daylong Benefit at Against the Stream in San Francisco on March 4th! All proceeds will directly support mindfulness-based rehabilitation groups for incarcerated and at-risk youth.


Youth report skills learned from MBA Project groups

We recently surveyed youth, asking "is there a specific mindfulness skill you learned from MBA that you've used/will use? Here is what some youth had to say:

-"Being able to meditate and be more aware of myself."

- "How to maintain my feelings and express them."

- "How meditation can get me through a hard time."

- "How to slow heart rate down."

- "Window of tolerance."

- "Lion mind vs. dog mind."

- "Meditation."

- "Awareness."

Double your impact in our April to August Challenge!

Thanks to the generosity of the Quest Foundation, the MBA Project will receive a $15,000 grant if we can match their contribution by August 31st! Donate today and your gift will go twice as far in impacting the lives of incarcerated youth. 

Your investment in ongoing, weekly mindfulness-based rehabilitation groups will help decrease stress and enhance well being for youth behind bars. Through MBA Project groups, youth are able to develop mindfulness skills — such as the ability to focus on the breath — that help them better navigate conflict that arises in juvenile hall and once they are released. With your help, more MBA Project youth will re-enter our community with greater awareness of themselves, and with specific techniques for regulating emotions and developing peace within.

Donate

Please consider taking advantage of this incredible opportunity. Any donation from now through August, no matter how small, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15,000!
