Kids & Family Class

These classes are designed for children ages 5 to 12. Parent(s) or grandparent(s) must accompany children.

Kids & Family Class

Many people think children can’t meditate because they have difficulty sitting still, but this simply is not true. Although sitting still is helpful during meditation practice, it is not required; we can meditate during all of our daily activities simply by holding a positive state of mind, such as love or compassion.

Since all children can learn positive ways of thinking, even about challenging situations, they can definitely learn to meditate, even if they have difficulty sitting still. Like any skill, meditation takes practice. In these classes, children will learn short, guided meditations. As children practice and gain experience, they are able to sit quietly for longer periods of time.

Each class includes a short discussion about everyday experiences relevant to children, guided meditation, plus fun activities that foster kindness, cooperation, patience, and giving.

You do not need to be Buddhist to take part and benefit. Everyone is welcome. No previous experience is necessary.
