Mar 11, 2019-- Many adolescents growing up in poverty have limited resources to help them cope with the difficulties their circumstances may bring: violence, resource scarcity, homelessness, to name but a few. In Philadelphia, the poorest of America's ten largest cities, the Inner Strength Foundation is equipping aspiring youth from vulnerable communities with tools to self reflect, develop interpersonal skills, and gain perspective on how our culture and physiology affect us. Founded in 2014 by Amy Edelstein, the twelve-week mindfulness-based course encourages participants to live from a place of gratitude and foster connections built on caring and kindness. "Gratefulness draws on the best of the human spirit in all of us,"says Edelstein. "It renews and refreshes ourselves, and best of all it is contagious. The more grateful we are, the more we experience the richness of life and the more others around us do too." (5626 reads)
