Description of Organization

The Center for Community Development, Inc. (“CCDI”), based in Virginia, through its division, EarthSong, which includes MAYA (“Mindful Awareness for Young Adults”), offered a three or six day mindfulness retreat program in California and Virginia for teens and young adults. During the retreats, participants were given the tools to free themselves from self-defeating habits (learned helplessness, emotional reactivity, numbing out, etc.) in order to gain insight into the causes/solutions of emotional difficulties, their personal relationships, and achievement of goals.

Grant(s) Awarded

In 2009, a grant in the amount of $2,500 was awarded to support CCDI’s MAYA retreats in the Bay area of California.
