This day offers a chance to stop for a while and allow your spirit to settle. It’s like shaking a snow globe then putting it down — just as the snow gradually stops swirling, our spirits calm when we sit quietly in meditation.
Children can join parents in exploring mindfulness through short meditations, simple exercises, stories, discussion. We will also make mind globes, with sparkles settling around a photo of you sitting in meditation — your own personal reminder of what’s it’s like to calm down
