PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
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. 

TARGET AUDIENCE:
– Children ages 5 – 8 years and their parent(s)/guardian(s)
– All faiths welcome
– New and returning students welcome
– No meditation experience necessary
