The Family Meditation Group meets at 10:30 am on the last Sunday of each month, except where noted (see schedule below). Led by Rev. Munnich, these gatherings introduce children and their parents to meditation through storytelling, discussion, crafts, and free play. Everyone is encouraged to join us on Family Meditation days for the Buddha’s Birthday and Flower Festival Celebration (Hanamatsuri) and planting of the Children’s Garden in spring; our Sangha picnic in July; and the celebration of our ancestors (Segaki) in the fall.
All ages are welcome. Parents provide healthy snacks and potluck dishes to share during the morning’s activities.
Family Meditation includes a short period of meditation and Dharma teaching. followed by activities for both adults and children. We may program may include a play, music, movement or other group activity that will compliment the season and the discussion’s theme. During mild weather we may hike or go on a field trip. Winter months may include board games by the fire, reading aloud or origami or other crafts. We end with a potluck party every month with healthy refreshments.
