The Ozone House Drop-In Center in Ypsilanti is excited to announce the addition of their new Zen Room. The space provides an opportunity for young people to take a moment to themselves to explore new ways of dealing with stress, practice coping skills and self-reflection, and explore their spirituality.
“Young people seldom have a safe space to themselves to relax, meditate, and learn about the practice of mindfulness” said Chardae Korhonen, engagement program manager at the Ozone House.
In addition to being a dedicated retreat space, young people will also have the opportunity to engage in creative expression in the Zen Room with access to art and music making supplies as well as a range of aromatherapy and lighting options. Workshops will be held regularly to promote self-care ranging from making stress balls and tranquility bottles to learning positive communication techniques.
The Ozone House is a community-based, non-profit agency that helps young people lead safe, healthy, and productive lives through intensive intervention and prevention services.
The Ozone House Drop-In Center at 102 N. Hamilton St. serves young people ages 13-20. Drop-In Center hours are Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 4-6 p.m., and Thursday from 4-8 p.m. Later hours are available during PrideZone on Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. Meals are served from 4-4:30 p.m. every weekday. Call 734-485-2222 to connect.
