A New Children's Program at Nalanda
Kids Meditation Group
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.
