Family Break Weekend
Family life is challenging. Amidst the constant bustle of busy daily life, it is easy to forget to make time to appreciate our family. Yet living with and raising a family can provide endless opportunities in which we can improve our own good qualities such as patience and love through learning to cultivate a peaceful mind. This Family Break Weekend will give everyone a chance to relax and to learn how to enjoy life in the beautiful environment of Kadampa Meditation Center New York and its grounds.
The weekend will include practical teachings on improving family life for both guardians and children, crafts, short meditations and fun outdoor activities. The weekend will be organized around simple themes that enable everyone to experience the confidence and happiness that arises from connecting with their good heart.
All families are welcome, no previous experience of Buddhism is necessary.
Recommended for children ages 4-12.
