The children’s program is designed to be a time where children and adults can practice together and also engage in their own separate practices. During the adult sit, adults will create a space for children that will involve mindfulness activities such as stories, songs, meditation practice, play, art projects, and space for the children to engage in and create their own sense of community with each other. We will begin and end the morning with adults and children together in the shrine room.
This event is free and open to the public, and parents are encouraged to bring their children or grandchildren to take part in this opportunity.
