Meditation For Kids Classes
Ages: 4 -12
About the Program:
These classes are designed to help children develop a peaceful and positive state of mind by listening to and applying Buddha’s teachings. In each class we share a short meditation and a brief teaching followed by fun activities and a creative project.
Your child will benefit from these classes by learning to cultivate loving kindness and learning to maintain a peaceful mind even in the most difficult situations.
It also provides an opportunity for parents to practice meditation with their children and to support parents in creating a peaceful and happy home life.
During the 1st half of 2016 our creative project is to use our imagination to grow a tree from the seeds of love, kindness and compassion. The roots and trunk will develop from good wishes and pure intentions and the branches of faith will support further growth. During these classes the children will hear words of wisdom whispering in the leaves and see how beautiful flowers and fruit blossom as a result of good actions. Through reliance on Buddha and our Spiritual Guide the children will see how their fully grown tree is a beautiful mind – a joy for all who encounter it!
