The Meditation for Kids class is organized around a Buddhist theme such as love, kindness and patience and will include a range of fun activities including story-telling and crafts. Children will also be gently guided into a simple meditation and given techniques to gain confidence, focus and consideration for others.
In an uncertain and busy world, both children and parents need a place to go where they can learn to develop harmony and methods for calming the mind and strengthening the family. These classes offer a simple introduction to Buddha’s teachings by emphasizing kindness, respect for others, and keeping a happy heart. In each class there is a short talk, gentle meditation, and an arts and crafts activity related to a Buddhist theme.
All families are welcome, no previous experience of Buddhism or meditation is necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The classes are designed for age range 3-11 years but everyone is welcome.
