Seattle Shambhala Children's Program

February 4th

Date details +

    Seattle Shambhala Children's Program offers respite for parents who wish to meditate as well as an introduction to mindfulness for children. Activities include short meditations, mindful games, singing, mindful walking and making mandalas. The aim of the program is to introduce children to practices they can use to calm themselves and stay present in the moment.

    February 4th
    At January's program, kids and parents created pinch pots. These will be fired by Alison Peel, our resident ceramicist, and brought back to the Center for our February 4th program where we will use them to serve snacks for mindful eating and drinking tea or juice for a small Japanese tea ceremony.

    The children’s program is offered every first Sunday of the month starting at 10 am and ending before the facilitated discussion (around 11:30am). Some snacks, drinks and games provided. Parents are invited to bring appropriate supplies for their children.

    There are no age restrictions but we do ask that you contact us in advance if your child is 3 years or younger, or has special needs. 

    Location: Seattle Shambhala Center, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle.
