If you find yourself at the middle of the month, middle of the week, needing a space to stop everything for a moment and just “be” – join writer and educator Naa Akua to help you slow down, calm down, and learn how to take care of yourself through meditation. Be prepared to experience calm and fun!

Please note that this is a program for TEENS ONLY! Because this program involves youth, we require that all participants who join via Zoom start the hour with their cameras on so that Hugo House instructors can verify the identity of attendees. If you don’t verify your identity by turning on your camera when asked by the instructor, we reserve the right to remove you from the Zoom meeting. If you have any questions about this policy, please send an email to youth@hugohouse.org.
