New Family Class, Arlington, VA
By Editor | Jun 27 2012
This new family meditation class provides young children 5-11 years old with a mindfulness framework to develop healthy responses to the ever-changing world around and inside of them. Children will learn how to express their innate qualities of being present with what is happening, respect for others and nature, loving kindness and compassion. Planting these seeds at an early age can reduce stress as well as sustain and nourish the mind, body and spirit for a lifetime.
Classes include lessons on basic Buddhist teachings, short meditations, movement exercises and hands-on activities geared towards developing mindfulness. Parents attend the classes with their children. This class is lead by teacher-in-training Fred Persi.
