Mindfulness creates the deep awareness of seeing life experiences through a nonjudgmental lens, where individuals can notice emotions, thoughts, physical sensations, and all of life's experiences in a healthy, non-reactive way. Mindful Sits are a great exercise to engage in a mindfulness practice, where one focuses on the present moment without worrying about thoughts of the past or future. Check out our guided mindful sits below!

STEP THREE - I've got my hands in my lap
STEP FOUR - And my heart to the sky
STEP FIVE - Now close your eyes, or soft gaze below.

MLP Hip Hop
MLP has always worked to be as engaging as possible and listen to the youth in our programs. As we began to run services in the early days of MLP, our youth wanted popular songs on the radio to be flipped into mindful songs. As a result, we now create “mindful music” by collaborating with our students and remixing the songs into mindfulness lessons.
