Learn the playfulness of Meditation. This program will teach families some simple meditation practices, adapted especially for young children. Parents and children will gain first-hand experience with practicing together. They will have more confidence in both their ability to grow their own meditation practice, and in their ability to grow and expand their own spiritual life as a family.

Each week will follow the same format, so that families can begin to develop a regular routine for their own practice together. Sessions will start with a children’s story, followed by a guided meditation/prayer, a few simple yoga/relaxation poses and a short moving meditation. Parents will practice along with their children. Parents will be encouraged to continue practicing with their children as part of their home routines.
