Red Mountain Sedona encourages youth to transition into young adults in an active, mindful, and intentional way. I have watched this program grow from a small group of four individuals to 21 at present census. I find the program to still remain intimate and sophisticated in the staff’s ability to work with varying types of personalities.
This is a program that utilizes meditation, yoga, interpersonal relations with similar age peers who are transitioning between adolescence and adulthood. It contrasts with other programs in promoting introspective therapy and allowing for more transcendence into emotional and reflective states. In this way, for the right individual there is the opportunity to then recognize oneself within the bigger or greater schema of life.
I had a very nice visit with my clients who were both very surprised and appreciative of my presence. We spoke for hours while watching martial arts, touring the new recreational room equipped with guitars and healthy food. I spent equal amount of time with the therapists going over their progress and next steps. Soon these two will be graduating back home to complete college or another ‘home’ to study theatre.
I chose these photos of two ‘calm’ and ‘focused’ young adults who have come a long, long way! If you have a young person at home needing a quality program to guide them, let’s think about ‘fit’ and what makes sense in providing efficient program to support transition to responsible adulthood. So, let’s talk!
