The most powerful gift we can give children and teens are the tools to navigate their unique path and the support to accomplish anything they desire. The Kabbalah Centre Youth Program now offers Youth Guidance Services to empower children and teens to grow in alignment with their soul's purpose.
Kabbalists teach that a connection to one's soul is the seed of all happiness and fulfillment, yet most human beings don't know how to live in alignment with it. When we're disconnected from our souls, we may connect with temporary moments of pleasure, but the long-term, consistent sense of peace and joy we all seek is out of reach.
Kabbalah teaches that it is essential every young person understand the true power residing within them in order to thrive. Through the new Youth Guidance Service, we partner with parents and children to help build self-confidence and self-trust as kids and teens begin to discover that everything they need to succeed is already within them.
"As my own children entered adulthood, I observed that their resilience, emotional intelligence, and spiritual backbone – which were all nurtured by the wisdom, support and tools they gained from The Kabbalah Centre and its youth programs – enabled them to move through life's challenges with a positive outlook, always searching for deeper meaning and connection amid chaos, and a genuine sense of accountability in everything they did," shares Elisheva Balas, Youth Guidance Service Coordinator and Kabbalah teacher. "In extending these services to any parent who wants to provide their children with a deeper sense of self-awareness, quest for growth, and connection to their purpose, we hope to empower families with the tools to navigate the realities of growing up in today's world."
These tools are need now more than ever, with US teenagers reporting the highest levels of sadness ever recorded. This mental-health crisis isn't relegated only to the US, it's an unfortunate global trend. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports around 20% of the world's children and adolescents have a mental health condition, with suicide the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.
Through the Youth Guidance Service, the expert support provided will help any child or teen thrive in their spiritual development. Best suited for 11-18 year olds, this completely personalized guidance service covers a variety of topics, designed and offered by our Kabbalah teachers who bring years of experience specializing in working with youth.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Upon booking a session, parents first complete a free consultation with our Youth Guidance Service Coordinator, Elisheva Balas, who works with parents one-on-one to tailor the session to their family and teen's or child's goals. This will ensure they have the most suitable curriculum specific to their needs, lifestyle, and desires.
Here's what parent Hali shared about her and her daughter Zazie's Youth Guidance Service experience to prepare for her Bat Mitzvah:
"What we found most valuable was the guidance Kate shared with Zazie. She brought the concepts of becoming a bat mitzvah to life by relating the experience to real life of a pre teen. Kate's kind spirit made the program unforgettable for our daughter and we are very grateful to have been guided by Kate's care and passion for this work." – Hali B.
Take your teen's or child's spiritual journey to their next level, with the expert support you'll both benefit from.
