Ofosu, Jen & kids Ofosu Jones-Quartey Jennifer Jordan Online Retreat via Zoom

Ofosu Jones-Quartey and Jennifer Jordan

10/4/2020 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM (ET/U.S. & Canada)  at  Online Retreat via Zoom (Virtual) (Map It)

Are you looking for an opportunity to cultivate resilience and joy within your family during these challenging times? Join us for our virtual Family Day. The theme is self-care. Meditation teachers Ofosu Jones-Quartey and Jen Jordan bring the practices of mindfulness & compassion to life in fun and practical ways through movement, music, mindful moments, and games.

We're delighted to partner for the first time ever with our friends at NCCF Freedom Schools who will lead us in Harambee! Harambee is a Ki Swahili word meaning to "pull together". Harambee includes fun call-and-response songs, chants and movements that build community, connection and positive attitudes. 

Below is an agenda to help parents plan. We are parents ourselves -- we encourage families to be families in all our messiness and to attend in a way that works for you, taking breaks as needed.  

Draft agenda:

  • Family Opening Session (30 minutes)
  • Break (15 minutes - optional activity)
  • Harambee (45 minutes)
  • Lunch Break (30 minutes - optional activity)
  • Break-out Groups (45 minutes - parent meditation. Kids meet separately)
  • Family Closing Session (30 minutes)

We only hold two Family Days per year - don't miss this opportunity! Scholarships are available. 

Please note: you must register and pay for each parent and child attending. After you enter the number of family members you will be bringing, a new registration page will appear for each attendee.
