This class is a place where families can go to learn together how to develop harmony, confidence and methods to calm our minds and be happy in these uncertain and busy times.

While parents and guardians attend the Sunday Morning Class, kids can attend a special class just for them. The purpose of these classes is to develop and nature positive qualities in young children through meditation, art activities and beneficial thinking. Kids will also be gently guided through a simple, relaxing meditation and given techniques to gain confidence, focus and consideration for others.

Each class has a short talk-story based and meditation plus fun activities that foster kindness, patience and giving.  This class is suitable for ages 4 to 12 years, with teens welcome to attend our General Program classes or this class.

We ask that children under four be accompanied by a parent. Yet, parents are welcome to stay for any age child.
