Meditation Groups

Soil and Soul has mindfulness clubs at 4 Title I high schools. Students in the clubs practice four aspects of training the mind and heart: 1) regulation of attention, 2) regulation of emotions, 3) regulation of thoughts, and 4) compassion. Learned and practiced together with peers and two mindfulness teachers, these skills result in more happiness.

“Happiness is always available in the present moment; happiness is only available in the present moment,” says Pablo del Real, Director of Mindfulness Programs for Auroras Voice and mindfulness club teacher. The mindfulness clubs help students grow in happiness by training the mind to stop, see, and appreciate the happiness available in the present moment.

Like other after-school clubs at local high schools, the mindfulness clubs are free to join and open to students in grades 9-12. The clubs typically meet once per week but during the pandemic, they have been meeting online and starting to meet at Tiger Territory Education Garden. The mindfulness clubs are currently at Atlantic Community High in Delray Beach, John I. Leonard High in Green Acres, Lake Worth Community High and Inlet Grove Community High in Riviera Beach.

Tiger Territory Education Garden has been revitalized as an outdoor living classroom and a neighborhood sanctuary for Lake Worth where we tend to our inner and outer landscapes. Our team teaches permaculture and regenerative gardening practices to yield a variety of crops through workshops, classes and open garden hours. Mindfulness programs are offered on a sliding scale! Our revitalization of green spaces address social and environmental justice, food security issues and offer tools to support mental and emotional health for our community.

We encourage youth to fulfill their community service hours at the garden with the hope of creating future environmental stewards.
