Our Seeds of Happiness Children’s Meditation Program teaches basic meditation techniques, with a focus on the cultivation of a loving and kind attitude. We base our program on “secular ethics” or aspects of positive character valued by all faiths: kindness, compassion, patience, generosity, self-control, and love.
While children participate in mindfulness practices and activities downstairs, parents are invited to join Kushok in the shrine room for meditation instruction and practice as well as advice on how to be a mindful and compassionate parent.
– Children ages 9 – 12 years and their parent(s)/guardian(s)
– All faiths welcome
– New and returning students welcome
– No meditation experience necessary
Children’s meditation courses are co-led by our Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe and Gillian Patton. Gillian is a teacher (B.Sc, B.Ed), mother of 3, and student of Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe since 2007. Gillian is passionate about equipping children with the skills and understanding they need to be compassionate, ethical, and successful.
