Children’s Time at The Shambhala Centre

With Lynn Dragone

Open Dates

“You are a flower. Every child is born in the garden of humanity as a flower. Each flower differs from every other flower”                  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Starting February 4th, we are reviving the Sunday children’s time at the Kootenay Shambhala Centre. The idea is to host children with story, arts and a variety of mindfulness practices while providing parents time to practice meditation.
We propose that we host young children age 3-6 from 9:30-10:30 going into tea time, and older children  7 and up from 11-12.I would also like to use this opportunity to unfold practices that lead toward Rites of Passage for the older children.

We propose that this be held every 1st and 3rd Sunday, therefore twice per month. If there is enthusiasm we may have more involvement toward the spring/summer time.
