Commencing in October, we begin our fourth year of Dharma School offering opportunities and encouragement for children to develop the foundations of mindfulness, compassion and wise action. Laying these foundations at a young age offers children the opportunity for them to develop these fundamental Dharma teachings as they grow into adulthood.
We are pleased to announce that we have expanded the Dharma School program to include two levels of classes: Level 1 for 4 – 6 year olds (4 by December 31) and Level 2 for 7 – 11 year olds (7 by December 31).
Through developmentally appropriate activities in art, music, play, storytelling, discussion and meditation, children will deepen their understanding of themselves and the world they live in. They begin to recognize and practice simple values such as listening attentively, paying close attention to their actions, developing the process of patience, giving, receiving and many other important teachings.
The school is open to children of all backgrounds.
Dharma School Application – due by August 30
