Introduce your child to the ideas of meditation, mindfulness and kindness at Nalanda's kids program. The program is geared towards children ages 4-10 and their parents, and will include hands on activities, stories, songs, and meditation exercises. While Buddhist materials will be used, the focus will be on mindfulness and kindness, so it is suitable for all families interested in fostering these qualities. It is being developed and led by parents, and is expected to continue once a month, most likely on the last Friday of the month.

The practice of "recognizing the nature of mind" (or consciousness) encompasses all the essential teachings and methods of Buddhist philosophy and contemplative practices. These methods allow an individual to actualize a wide range of awakening mind and to transform afflicted mental states.
Participants in this retreat will be introduced to these higher level meditative experiences, including:
establishing all appearance as an aspect of mind
integration of the "nature of mind" practices into preparation for the end of life and after death experience
The "integration" section will include teachings on the Bardo - the intermediate state between this life and next life; and a very special Tibetan Tantrayana based ceremonial practice.
Retreat will be at Gwinwood Retreat Center on Hicks Lake, Lacey.
